Welcome, willkommen, bienvenue!


Our Mission



Would you love to contribute to making this world a better place while being simply yourself which means complex, curious and creative

Nice to meet you! Enchantée. Schön bist du hier!


My name is Patricia Mauerhofer alias Patty Muffins. I’m a Swiss chocolate lover, writer, teacher and coach. I empower bright adults to always have time for the activities and people that matter most. I can coach and guide you in English, German, Swiss German or French. I’m happily married (for the second time) and a step mom of four adults. 

When I was coached for the first time in 2001, I knew what I wanted to do in the future: be the facilitator of great shifts in the lives of others who have a lot to share but have not yet dared to “ turn up the volume”.

Might this be you? You are bright (maybe even brilliant, but you would never call yourself like this).


You have learned to hide who you really are over time; you are dimming your light. You’re afraid of scorching others. But the result of you doing this is that the world misses out on your brilliance.

Everyone loses!

You Matter

How To Share Your Gifts With The World


Long before I became a mentor and coach, I earned a master’s degree in international relations.
I worked in the humanitarian field and in public health in order to contribute to the alleviation of the suffering in this world. 


In 2015 I started exploring the concepts of Highly Sensitive Person HSP  and Gifted Adults (or eXtra intelligent/intensive persons XIP) which lead to concepts like multipotentialites, zèbres, surefficience cérébrale (deux notions qui ne me paraissent pas adéquates), Hochsensitivität (versus Hochsensibilität), Vielbegabung or Rainforest Minds.

And it started to dawn on me that I seem to be part of a small minority of people that are endowed with a mind, brain, nervous system, and body (!) that are quite different from most other human beings. (Note: different not better!)

Understanding my Key Strengths in 2013 that lead to a specialized training in Positive Psychology, and having explored with a coach since 2017 how exactly I am extra-ordinary were two game changers that allowed me even more to love myself for who I am and play to my sensitivities as strengths.

Free Yourself

know yourself in order to love & be yourself


After freeing myself from self-imposed hiding and playing small, I made it my mission to empower other bright, sensitive, empathic and ethical women and men like you to make a difference instead of just feeling different.

Patty Muffins (the alter ego I invented to ponder less and play more as well to talk about ‘giftedness’) and I can support you to understand how extraordinary you are, how you are extraordinary and what makes you really happy, energetic, and flourishing.

Only from there can you contribute to making this world a better place in powerful ways that are aligned with who you really are.

Patricia's wishes for the world

You Are Not Alone
