Take the direct path to your desired future. Problems and heaviness are always welcome without you falling into problem paralysis. So your journey is 'minimally invasive'.

Access your inherent wisdom. The powerful combination of hypnotherapy and systemic therapy enables you to find solutions that the conscious mind alone often cannot access.


Learn to use your very own body intelligence to its fullest by following its signals, which are sometimes indeed troublesome. Use your inherent wisdom to develop solutions for your concerns that feel truly coherent.

What Clients Say

Copywriter / Content Writer

Through coaching with Benedikt, I embarked on a wonderful journey. I was able to understand how much the conscious and subconscious are interconnected and shape my current actions. Since then, I have felt more powerful, calmer, and have a great trust in myself. Thanks to his personal and approachable manner, I felt superbly supported from the very beginning and highly recommend Benedikt's coaching sessions.

Violeta M.

Benedikt coaches in a very special way: heart-opening, loving, authentic, and with a lot of calmness. He creates a space where one feels valued and accepted. After each coaching session with Benedikt, I felt more connected to my heart and had the feeling of experiencing love more strongly within me, for myself and for others. Thank you for this gift, Benedikt!

Mathias S.

I recently had a coaching session with Benedikt, and it was truly transformational. He has a gift for helping people gain clarity and insight into their lives, and he creates a safe and supportive space for exploration and growth.

Kate B.

With Benedikt, I ended up learning information about myself that I never would have guessed was there. I was able to separate what my culture was pressuring me to do from what was actually my own highest self, and how it was actually not the self that I was nurturing most at the time.

More Testimonials

I was facing an acute crisis, a significant change that I couldn't foresee, and it completely knocked the ground from beneath my feet. Through the sessions with Benedikt, I was able to see the situation from a new perspective. The way I was guided step by step by Benedikt through these very difficult situations enabled me to experience and utilise the pain. I can only recommend working with Benedikt; it's an absolute enrichment. I also value the flexibility that the sessions offer, as it provides me with additional opportunities.

Anett Make-up Artist

On my journey towards self-employment, I was accompanied by doubts. Am I convincing enough? Can I handle the risk? Can I muster the necessary energy? There seemed to be many obstacles in my path. I knew I had internalised many beliefs that were blocking me and sapping my energy, but I couldn't overcome these blockages on my own. Working with Benedikt helped me to better understand such doubts, to deal with them effectively and ultimately to manifest new, realistic beliefs for myself. Many thanks for your always motivating manner and your empathy. This has greatly helped me to bring about positive changes and integrate them into my everyday life.

Ronnie Communications Consultant

Benedikt is absolutely amazing as a person and as a specialist. His profile impressed me from the first sentences and I started thinking that this is the person that can help me out. And actually he does. Benedikt helped me see myself from another perspective, he empowered me and brought light to the situation I was baffled about. He also guided me to see the way out of the situation I was in and to decide on the next steps to be taken. I recommend Benedikt from the bottom of my heart. If you don’t try, you will never know. So maybe it’s worth taking this chance?!

How does the coaching session work?

The session itself is individually tailored to your concerns, so that we can simply work on your desired goal state in a solution-focused and coherent way.

For which topics is online coaching suitable?

The beauty of online coaching is that you can use it for exactly the same issues that you would use face-to-face coaching for. These include blockages and stress, fear and self-doubt, but most importantly, accessing your inherent wisdom and power. All that for which you would also use a conventional coaching.

At the same time, please keep in mind that this individual coaching is not psychotherapy and cannot replace it.

What are the advantages of online coaching with Follow The River?

It allows you to fit coaching into your potentially hectic and busy everyday life. You don't have to take time off work or travel across town, saving you time, nerves and transport costs. Flexible times with coaching appointments in the morning, at noon or in the evening allow you the comfort of going on the journey in a relaxed way from where you feel most comfortable. Whether at home, in the office or in the car. Go on the journey when and where you want.

What are the cancellation conditions?

If you change your mind, you can easily cancel your coaching package within the first 14 days of purchase, or until the coaching session is taken up (if it is taken up before the 14 days have expired), without giving any reason, by exercising your right of withdrawal.

The coaching sessions themselves can be cancelled free of charge up to 24 hours before the start of the session. Within 24 hours of the appointment, the coaching session will be charged in full.

How secure is my data with Follow The River?

At Follow The River, I do everything I can to protect your personal and health data as best as possible. I use the modern encryption method SSL (Secure Socket Layer), use data centres that are located in Germany, and of course observe the rules of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) to ensure the greatest possible data security.

Payments are processed exclusively via established and secure payment providers (PayPal, Stripe, SEPA, and Direkt Überweisung). In addition, you are protected by the 14-day right of withdrawal in case you change your mind.

So you can concentrate on your topic and I'll take care of the rest.

I would recommend online consultations with Benedikt based on his skills to warm up the conversation while letting you feel understood and accepted. His expertise in embodiment psychology allowed me to find the missing associations and provide explanations along with answers to questions I struggle with in life.

Alex H.


I am really impressed with how professional, passionate about the coaching, and flexible Benedikt is in finding the right approach. Combined with his easy-going manner of communication, I was able to feel comfortable during our first session, even though I was in a really confused state of mind. You can't go wrong with getting in touch with Benedikt. 10/10
