The power of the circle

“Paradoxically, the more we try to change ourselves, the more we prevent change from occurring. On the other hand, the more we allow ourselves to fully experience who we are, the greater the possibility of change.” — Laurence Heller

Stefanie lives and works in Frankfurt as a consultant, facilitator and coach. Her private coaching practice is situated in Frankfurt / Bornheim Mitte.  

Stefanie has a background in labour law, worked for 2 years in an international law firm (Baker&McKenzie) and for 7 years in a big corporate (BASF SE) in the HR department handling individual & collective HR matters. She was also the HR project lead in various international M&A transactions. 

Stefanie’s  passion in life is helping others to connect to themselves and others in more meaningful and more human ways – to bring something into the world that makes a positive difference. Stefanie is a big believer in the power of the circle and fascinated by the potential of groups and facilitating their collective intelligence. 

During her own soul-searching journey Stefanie immersed herself deeply in all sorts of self-exploratory experiences ranging from Zen meditation, breathwork to bodywork. She lived in a monastery / seminar house in the Odenwald for three years and became very inspired by the insights monastic life has to offer to modern society. She was also deeply impacted by the silent retreats she experienced in Zen Center Regensburg e.V where she worked as a Director of the Zen Center Regensburg e.V. under the guidance of the internationally renowned Zenmaster Hyon Gak Sunim.

Stefanie is trained as a hypno-systemic coach by Dr. Gunther Schmidt, Milton Erickson Institute, and completed the Trigon Training on holistic systemic team- and organizational development and solution-oriented conflict management. She also trained with Dr. Stephen Gilligen (“Systemic Trance”) and participated in many courses on Western / Buddhist psychology. She is currently undergoing a 3-year training in GrofBreathwork as she finds breathwork to be a wonderful tool for self-development. 

Clients appreciate Stefanie for her clarity, her ability to structure complexity and her empathy. She is a skilled facilitator who will often invite her clients to get out of their head and to come back to their body to connect to their “gut feelings” and deeper intuition – dimensions of our being that are neglected in our culture. At the same time, Stefanie is very pragmatic in her work with groups, ensuring that they develop and find their own solutions.  

Stefanie works both in German and in English.
