My Story


Instead, of being a soulless businesswoman, as I was advised to, I chose to follow my heart.

As a result, I  took bold action

  • Well paid job in a large company: quit.
  • Nice shiny car: sold.
  • Beautiful apartment with view on the river: I’m out of it.
  • Furniture, Clothes: Sold.

What followed, was a time with many surprising twist and turns. 

There was no Plan A or B. I simply trusted life,
that it will provide me with the right opportunities at the right time. 

And so it was! 

My journey took me to different places and countries in the world.
I met the most different people and lifestyles. 

Has it been all sunshine?
Sure not. 

Has it been worth it?
BIG Yes! 

You cannot mess up what is meant to be!

After my time out, I made the decision to start working as a consultant and coach.

And what can I say …

There had been no prior “plan!”

Yet, doors opened and it worked out:

By trusting the flow of life,

Being confident about my ideas and impulses,

And having the courage to act on them.  

It's simple - and can be easy!

I know it may sound all so easy and fun to quit everything
and go out and travel and find yourself doing your thing… 
but I know it’s not always all fairies and unicorns!
Especially, when you try to figure it all out on your own.

You and I know: All the struggles and crisis are worth the trouble!

That’s why I’m here to help you:

My Expertise & Experience

My expertise lies in over 10 years of working with groups and individuals, handling different roles such as
a consultant, coach,  yoga teacher or trainer.

In cooperation with MAICONSULTING Gmbh&Co. KG I’m working as a Senior Consultant and Coach
for some of the leading companies in the world in industries such as aviation, engineering and everyday-life products.

I have helped different clients – from admins to CEOs –
especially with matters of Change Management and Leadership Development.

My methodology and approach include:

  • Psychology (Diploma)
  • Constellation work in action (Psychodrama and Sociodrama)
  • Coaching (Solution-Focused Short Term Coaching, Laser Coaching, systemic approach, NLP,…)
  • Psychotherapy (non-medical practitioner)
  • Yoga and Bodywork, Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Quantum Healing and Quantum Flow (certified by RHI and Juan Pablo Barahona)
  • and Agile Methods (SCRUM…)

My intention for you is to strengthen YOUR resources

I believe that every problem carries its instinctive solution.

Together with you, I search for the difference in terms of behavior
or circumstances that makes the difference in the desired direction. 

And from there, we find practical action steps and more freedom of action.

I’d love to help you find your flow again, 

gain confidence in what you do,

and find back to your true courage.

In the end, we only have this one chance.
It’s no dress rehearsal, it’s the actual performance!

Aloha Vita – for me, it stands for Love and Life (Hawaiian Italian wild mix…).


And I know that you can totally fall back in love with your life.


Remember, you can absolutely live the BEST LIFE!

PS: As a corporate consultant, I know how stuck companies can be, divisions or teams.

All of the above can be applied to corporate teams as well. Contact me, if you wish for more information.

"Words cannot describe the profound breakthroughs I experienced while working with Friederike."

Her intuitive coaching skills, loving demeanor and persistence allowed me to go deep into layers of limiting beliefs that had held me back from stepping into my power and live from a place of wholeness. You are so amazing and I will be forever grateful to have met you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
