They say

Benedikt enables you to go deep inside yourself to find the answers there. For this, he relies mainly on the sensation of the body. I had two inner directions on a topic and was able to understand what each side wanted for me.

Baptiste Barennes

Benedikt coaches in a very special way - heart-opening, loving, authentic and with a lot of calm. After each coaching session with Benedikt, I was more connected to my heart and felt the love in me, for me and for others more strongly.

Violeta M.

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.

Mathias S.

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, and what was actually my own highest self.

I would recommend online consults 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.

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

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.
