About me

When you hire a life coach, it's important to find someone with whom you click. There are multiple factors influencing this "clicking", but a basic one is the rapport. Now, what the hell is rapport? Rapport is a close relationship, in which you and I are able to understand each other's feelings or ideas and communicate well. That is why it is very important to find a coach with the relevant life experience for you.


For example, if you're struggling with adapting to a new country, you should probably look for a coach who has a wide migration experience. Similarly, if you're a single mum facing issues related to raising your kids alone, you should go for a coach who has gone through a similar life experience (unfortunately, not me, sorry). While professional coaches have been trained to actively listen and support you in your dilemas, whichever they are, I can tell you that it does make a big difference if they have gone through similar issues themselves. That is why I want to tell you a little bit more about me. To see if we click!


My name is Ester, I was born and raised in Spain, and after having moved across over 10 countries in the last 15 years, I currently live between Mexico and Germany. I am a doctor in social anthropology, a professional coach, and I love working with people, providing them with support in different areas of their lives.

During the past 8 years, as an anthropologist, my job has been to understand people, their desires, fears or motivations to keep going. The work I have done, with women and men from different countries in Africa, Europe and Latin America, has shown me some of the most important parts of the essence of the human being and our behaviors. This is how my desire to support people in their life transitions, as well as in their personal and professional growth led me to train and get certified as a Coach at Create Coaching, an institution accredited by ICF (International Coach Federation).

I accompany my clients through their various processes, inspiring them through thought-provoking questions, and challenging their belief systems, interpretations, assumptions, and values. As a professional Coach, I promise to support and accompany you during all your processes, but in the end you will be the main person in charge and protagonist of your personal and professional growth. Building the life you want requires planning, action and vision. In my sessions I provide you with a safe space, free from judgment of any kind, where you can be yourself and make the most of your potential to create the life you want.

I enjoy supporting people who are in a process of change, be it professional, emotional or spiritual. I firmly believe in personal development where we are all "work in progress", and that is one of the most fascinating characteristics of the human being: keep moving forward and become better versions of ourselves.


Of course, I don't have all the answers, but I am convinced that I can help you live more fully and more in tune with what really matters to you.

Let's work together!

My story of chang(es) 

In 2018 I finished my PhD in social anthropology. For the record, my dream had never been to become a renowned academic, but that's where I ended up. Although I did not feel completely satisfied in the academic field, the social pressure of colleagues and friends, as well as the fear of facing the unknown, made me continue on autopilot, from postdoc to postdoc.


I had achieved everything I thought I needed. I was established in Germany, had a partner and a stable job in a highly respected academic institution. And yet, despite my accomplishments, I didn't feel fulfilled. Those feelings kept getting bigger and more overwhelming until one day I exploded. I left everything and did what I do best in life: run away. Two years later, with two failed relationships behind me, with clear signs of addiction to all the possible -zepams you can imagine, and still not knowing what to do with my life, I realized that something had to change.

After loads of theraphy and a painful coaching process, for the first time in my life I was forced to face the most terrifying question of all:

What does Ester want?
(and where does she want it?)

Have you ever asked yourself this question? What was the answer? In my case, I realized that it was not clear at all. Mind you, what seemed to be very clear to me was what others wanted and expected from me. It was not an easy process, but it was worth it. For the first time in my life I decided to stop moving on by inertia, based on other people's expectations, and I began to take action.

The story behind
Mañana También Abrimos

Mañana También Abrimos is the product of a long period of personal growth, full of ups and downs, crises, despair and multiple temptations to give up. It is the pure example of constant evolution, of adapting to changes and of the recognition that "it is never too late".
