About Me

Our Mission



I empower bright women to love themselves for who they are not how they perform and contribute to making this world a better place while being at their best.
My name is Patricia Mauerhofer. I’m a Swiss chocolate lover and a success coach for bright women. (And yes, I can coach and guide you in English,German, Swiss German or French.) I experienced powerful coaching for the first time in 2001 when I was 30 – 2½ hours that not only helped me make an important decision with regards to my job but allowed me to see my real challenge in life with complete clarity. For the first time, I acknowledged my heaviest burden – my struggling marriage – and began to see what could be different.

I knew

what I really, really wanted,


Even better, after this session I knew what I really, really wanted, professionally and personally. Plus, I planted the seed of what I wanted to do in the future: be the facilitator of great shifts in the lives of women who have a lot to share but have not yet dared to
“ turn up the volume”.
These women are bright (maybe even brilliant, but they would never call themselves like this).

They have learned to hide who they really are over time; they are dimming their light. They are afraid of scorching others. But the result of them doing this is that they feel stuck, and the world misses out on their brilliance.

Everyone loses!


Long before I became a coach, I earned a master’s s degree in international relations and worked in the humanitarian field in order to contribute to the alleviation of the suffering in this world. But I underestimated the devastating impact this kind of work had on my own wellbeing.

Until several years ago, I hadn’t learned to listen to my mind-and-body and its extraordinary needs, which are different than for most people. I learned it the hard way. I was very good at pushing myself and applying my high standards first and foremost upon myself (and I still am). I repeated habits and patterns that created overstimulation, stress and exhaustion.


Free Yourself

know yourself &love yourself in order to be yourself


Understanding my Signature Strengths in 2013 was a game changer that allowed me to love myself for who I am and not how I perform.
After freeing myself from self-imposed hiding and playing small, I made it my mission to empower at least 1,000 smart, sensitive, empathic and ethical women to understand how they are extraordinary and what makes them really happy. Only from there can they contribute to making this world a better place in powerful way that’s aligned with who they really are.
