Deciding to do something different can feel like being dropped off in a foreign country. ALONE. Where almost no one speaks your language. (Yep, I've done that!) It can feel isolating and intimidating. It can be tempting to stay in your hotel or home, to keep it small. Never venturing out to explore. But you know you are meant for more than that!
It's all in my name and has been my life calling ...
You see, Ariane is derived from Ariadne who according to Greek mythology, helped Theseus find his way through the Minotaur's
labyrinth. She safely placed a ball of yarn into his hand for him to find his way thought the labyrinth. The yarn unravled as he
ventured deeper and deeper into the maze. After he conquered the Minotaur, he found his way out by following the yarn.
This is what I do: offering you a ball of yarn so you can walk through the labyrinth and find your way into clarity and action.
The answer is already in you. I'm here to help you find it.
Together we will make your ideas, projects, dreams, and fears fully visible so that you can decide what's really important to
you and what you wish to expand in your life. With tools from the agile project methology and key elements from the "Ariadne logic"
we will create a tangible plan that fits your life and is actually doable. You will feel empowered holding your ball of yarn, your
life, again in your own hands and you will have me with my expertise at your side. You'll get feedback, motivation, accountability,
and laughter along the way from me. Plus, you'll be amazed at what you're capable of how FAST your life can change.
"Coming out of a long, heavy winter I was feeling depleted, lost, bored, stagnant, mildly depressed, at times even angry. My wheels were spinning and my creative spirit needed a spark. Through her gentle, loving manner, Ariane offered clear ideas, suggestions, intuitive feedback, and support. Her concrete and helpful tools helped to boost my energy, focus my mind, and shift my perspective. She acted as a vessel to guide me through the process of going from fear to confidence, from seeing myself as mundane and boring to someone who is multifaceted, creative and interesting. With Ariane at my side I brought up the courage to be that writer I always wanted to be. We integrated time pockets that would allow me to write and still take care of my son and working full time. If I could summarize this experience in one sentence –which is hard for me to do – Ariane helped me go from two-dimensional black & white to full-on 3D/HD color.I feel excited, inspired, and have regained footing on my path to creating the life I desire!"
Yoga Teacher & Writer
“2 years ago I arrived as an immigrant in Freiburg from Iran feeling overwhelmed and insecure about what was to come.
How was I going create this new life of mine? My coaching with Ariane made me feel calm right away, with time organized and in control of my own life again. Ariane took me from insecure to confident, showed me how much I already know and how to apply that to my new life situation. Together we developed a plan that helped me apply for a work position, speak German with a smile and feel confident about who I am. Ariane was flexible on the topics that I wanted to discuss without ever loosing sight of the bigger picture for me. She accompanied me along my path with a clear vision, practical tips, laughter and a strong believe in who I am. I now have woven together my two cultures and living a life with energy and a clear vision on what is and what is to come.”
"Working with Ariane was so supportive in catalysing massive progress in reaching my creative goals.
She helped me to identify and alleviate the ways I was sabotaging my progress. Freeing myself from this I got my first paid gig performing my original music after just 3 sessions with Ariane. I attracted some incredible opportunities and collaborations as a result. Amazing!"
Writer, Hip Hop Artist
“The past few years have been extremely challenging for me both personally and professionally. Although resilient, I felt unhappy and unfulfilled with my life. Through my coaching with Ariane, we addressed each area of my life and turned it around step by step. Now, I feel healthy, vibrant, focused and in charge - simply amazing!
Ariane is extremely professional and through her excellent listening skills, hands-on exercises and powerful advice, she helped me out of my funk. I believe these 1:1 coaching sessions set aside for me and my growth made a tremendous difference in my journey. No matter what the topic, I had Ariane at my side whom I could fully trust. I highly recommend Ariane to anybody who is contemplating embracing life to the fullest."
"I'm a creative with so many ideas in my head. I go into doubting myself, wondering which idea to bring forward.
Ariane is changing that. She gives me smart tools, asks me the right questions and intuitively seems to know what I need to move forward. I feel more confident and joy in being an artist. My project is now blooming and the launch date of my newest project is days away."
Painter, Activist & Healer
"I am an intuitive artist and it is challenging for me to plan my creative projects.
Ariane's technique & questions are accurate and often very to the point. My ideas on my current project were vague as I approach my art playfully and with a lot of freedom. The focus and knowing that I can discuss specific questions with Ariane is a great strategy for me and my art. I move forward so much quicker, keeping the momentum in my art."
"Ariane helped me gain clarity on my film project as we created an action plan together that felt real and achievable.
When I was finding things difficult, she guided me on how to take the pressure off myself. So I managed to move forward again quickly.
Now I create my films without fear as I speak from the heart. Working with Ariane gave me a clear vision of my business and practical tools on how to get there.
Ariane knows how to listen well, and has a real gift for combining practical advice with insightful questions."
"Ariane has a masterful way of balancing structure/practical guidance (masculine) and flow/intuition (feminine). She has helped me recognise my strenghts and asks great questions to get to the truth of my challenges and find creative solutions. This way I lost my fear of growing financially independent and slowing down so I could recognize my own self worth. Being from South Africa originally and living in England brings its challenges as I miss my roots and family. Addressing cross-cultural living with Ariane allowed me to embrace both cultures and see the gains I have through this experience. She has also helped me create a healthier, more balanced approach to juggling business and motherhood. Her empathy, groundedness, and expertise create a safe & nuturing space. I would highly recommend her to entrepreneurs who want a holistic approach to business and life."

"As my newest creative project was developing I had Ariane at my side. She brought structure into my flow of ideas, helped me clarify which steps to take next.
She took away my fears of all technical and the online world.
Ariane took leadership were needed, but also respected my way of working. Now my project has become a reality and I have created something to be proud of.
What a joy and bliss it is to work with Ariane!"
"Ma collaboration avec Ariane sur un projet de vidéo a été fantastique:
en plus de son sens artistique développé, elle est très intuitive et cerne très bien l’atmosphère qui doit ressortir de notre travail.
Sa vidéo m’a permis de faire connaître d’avantage mon approche au grand public. Une expérience à renouveler très vite!!"
