I am Kerstin Pilz, PhD.

Published author, TEDx speaker, passionate teacher, world traveler, yogini, photography enthusiast…

I believe we are the authors of our lives. We are in charge of the stories we tell ourselves.

Writing was my lifesaver when I went through a devastating life event.

It can be your lifesaver too. I will show you how.

I am so glad that you’ve found me!

I am here to help you discover the power of your own voice.

I guide you towards your creative inner magic.

I offer you what I know about the healing power of writing and I share with you what I’ve learned about the craft of writing and storytelling, about words, meaning and language, in 20 years as University lecturer.

Join me on retreat (we’re going to Bali this year) and online (I am available for 1:1 coaching).

Do you have a story to tell?

The Healing Power of Writing

TEDxTownsville, October 2020


I told my story of how I discovered the healing power of writing by going through the fires of grief in 15-minutes to a global audience.

It’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. But also one I am most proud of.

My knees were trembling as I stood there in that red circle, blinded by a bright white light.

But my voice was loud and clear.

Only the truly brave dare to be vulnerable.

Saying those words on stage felt empowering. I was speaking my own truth.

I believe that we are the authors of our lives.

Vulnerability is the way to a deeper relationship with ourselves and with others.

Watch my TED talk and find out why we can all benefit from the healing power of writing and from the joy of creative self-expression.
