How will you get through this winter?

The cold & grey days are enough to be intentional about how you go about things in order to feel good.

Throw in social distancing, closed queer gathering spaces, worries about your friends mental and physical health and you realize this winter demands more than self help strategies.

You are not in this alone.
This queer coaching group is designed for you to: 

  • Re-charge yourself
  • Learn how to release stress from your body
  • Find new ways to do things in these constantly changing circumstances
  • Connect to the part in you that knows what is best for you in these times and then actually implement that
  • Get inspired to make this a great winter (yes, it can totally be one)
  • Enjoy the community of other LGBTQIA+ people from various countries

We meet virtually every two weeks for the next three months. It is a space where you can be yourself and don’t need to justify who you are. We respect your pronouns, family and relationship concepts.

This group is for all of you who identify as lesbian, gay, pansexual, bisexual, asexual and/or all of you who are non-binary, trans*, intersex – all of you from various queer communites, who care about social justice, racial justice and our planet.

3 months of support – 7 sessions
all for just 250€ // US$300 // GBP 225£


noun. The ups and downs of a pandemic.

The feeling of uncertainty, anxiety, and helplessness surveying news and information concerning Covid-19.

Your group facilitor and coach:

Joy Zalzala-Soyka - Relationship & Career Coach. Queer Migrant Mom.

I am a relationship & career coach with great love and respect for misfits and rule breakers, who expect the best for themselves and the world.

I offer you tools, perspective and space to let go of habits, emotions & limiting beliefs, that no longer serve you, so that you can evolve as a whole person.

I have 8+ years of counseling and management experience in organizations focused on helping women, who have experienced sexual and domestic violence as well as organizations serving people from lesbian, gay, bisexual, non-binary and trans* communities.
As a law of attraction coach I offer individual coaching by phone/skype & online courses in English and German.

Let’s face it. You won’t make it to every single meeting. And that is ok.
I will keep you in the loop about what the input and insights we have during the group sessions.

If you are looking at these times and think, oh my I really really want to be part of this but I really won’t be able to get off work/ find childcare during these times – write to me. Let’s think of a solution together, which might involve me offering additional times soon : )

The group sessions are a time to re-charge & get inpsired.

No prepwork, no homework, no way to fall behind any material.
This is intentionally not a course.

It is a time to take for yourself while surrounding yourself with amazing & supportive people.

The group sessions are intentionally set during holiday season – I believe this is exactly the right time to take a break and re-charge, to have some extra support when gatherings are not possible as you would like them to be or when you are stuck with people you don’t want to celebrate anything with.

You might not make it to every meeting – and that is ok. I will keep you in the loop of inputs and topics we have talked about in the session.

The group size is between 7 and 12 people.

This is a group for people from various LGBTQIA+ communites with diverse experiences regarding racism, migration, disabilitly as well as circumstances regarding the pandemic.

I will meet with everyone who signs up for a short phone or zoom call before we meet as a group to ensure this is really is a queer space and a place where you will be respected with your pronouns and experiences.

If you want to join the coaching group, yet don’t have the funds, I am happy to offer you a discount or even a full scholarship so you can participate.

Look, I have been there, and I know there are various reasons why queer people at some point in their life don’t have the funds to spend on a group coaching like this. Covid Lockdown have also left many people unemployed.  So I don’t need justifications or applications – if you want to be part of this group, please join – no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

Just get in touch with me at:
