Iris Schaden, Your Transformational Coach

About Me


Hello, my name is Iris Schaden.

I am a certified Business and Personal Life Coach and member of the International Coach Federation (ICF). Prior to this, I worked in global companies across different management roles as a marketing professional for over 20 years.  

I have always been fascinated by people. This passion has not only resulted in ongoing personal research on modern human psychology and neuroscience, but has also led me to live, travel and work around the world, exploring and experiencing human behaviours and the varying cultures that shape them.  

The deeper levels of our unconscious minds inform the aspects of our behaviours and motivations. It is my passion to decode and understand how we are driven by these and, in turn, help YOU realise this awareness so that you can utilise it to transform your life. 

While I grew up in Europe, in a beautiful small town in the countryside, and after years of living abroad – including parts of Europe, the United States of America, Senegal and China – since 2007 I have settled in Australia and made Melbourne my home. I adore being able to live by the beach. 


When I am not helping my clients, you’ll find me engaged in meditation and yoga (my daily rituals), appreciating a glass of wine while having philosophical discussions with friends, or seeking out local products at the farmers’ market. For me, this peaceful and happy existence is a fulfilling life.


It hasn’t always been this way. I have had my fair share of difficulties in life, enough to have the empathy to know how tough it can be at times. But this, along with my resilience and overall positive outlook, is also the very reason I became a Transformational Coach.


I not only know that the difficult times will pass, but also that independent help, along with a smile or two, will help you manoeuvre through uncertainty and overcome difficult circumstances in your private or professional environment.
