Hello, my name is

I am a Psychologist and a Transformative Coach for Leaders, Teams and Organisations

With over two decades of experience working with medium and large companies, I have helped thousands of people worldwide, individually and collectively

I started studying the human mind 36 years ago when I was 18. That indeed says something about my age but also my passion for psychology. I have always been fascinated by the human experience: our humanity, potential, resourcefulness, and ability to change.

I have witnessed unbelievable personal and collective transformations with my clients. This touches me deeply and gives meaning and a purpose to what I do.

I work with intelligence, my heart and a lovingly disruptive intuition. I bring a profound psychological and a wisdom-based understanding to my work that makes all the difference.


A little bit of my personal background

I was born in Paris in 1969 to Morrocan parents who came to France to get a chance to live a better life. I was the oldest of five children and the first in my family to study. There was love but also lots of suffering. That intrigued me. This is how I decided to study psychology. I wanted to understand. It saved me.

At 25, following my heart, I moved to Germany. I started to learn German almost from scratch, and a few years later, I got the opportunity to start my career in HR at one of the world’s most renowned automotive companies. I didn´t know before that my destiny would be to work and live at this level. My reality became bigger than the dreams I had at that time.


At the age of 35, I had a stroke. It changed the trajectory of my life. Not only because I was very lucky and thankful to get a second chance but also because it forced me to reconsider what was important and what I really wanted to do with my life. So, I started everything all over again.

I remembered my passion for understanding our humanity, being there for others, and the strong need for freedom of thinking and doing. I left my job and started a business (DSH International HR) as an international coach and systemic consultant. I was finally back to the human side of everything.

Over the seventeen years, I have worked with thousands of people on all continents and became more interested in the humanity we share than our differences. Psychology has started to play a more crucial role in how I work with clients, and the exploration of ancient wisdom has brought even more depth to my work. A natural evolution to where I am today. 

Psychology and Spirituality

I was always a psychologist in my heart. I am fascinated by our humanity and love to work in service of people. That´s what I do and have always done. That´s why I studied and what guides me through life until today.

The stroke I experienced at the age of 35 years old stopped me in my life and my corporate career, but it also helped me connect with a deeper part of myself and reset my life. I am very thankful that I had the chance to do that.

It also left me with many questions: Why did I survive? What am I here for? Why do I feel much better now than I had over so many years? What was at play that helped me go through this life crisis in such a peaceful and serene state? How was that possible? Who are we, really?

About twelve years ago, I came across an understanding of the mind and the human experience that helped me answer all these questions and completely changed my relation to life and how I work with my clients.

The teachings of Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Deepack Chopra, and finally, Sydney Banks opened my eyes to another dimension of life. They connected to an ancient wisdom that showed me something deep about life and the human experience. That explained not only psychologically but also spiritually what happened to me after the stroke. Suddenly, it all made sense.

My work has evolved in a quantum leap from that moment. It has become even more impactful and meaningful. This understanding of ancient wisdom is there when we work together. We don´t have to talk about it, but we can if you want. It guides my work with you.

I see the depth and beauty of who you truly are and would love for you to see it, too. I know you can do anything when you see that for yourself and your people. It is magical.

“Drissia manages to square the circle! Thanks to her clear communication, her holistic view of the world and her in-depth knowledge, she is able to deconstruct complex connections and focus on the essential. With a lot of sensitivity and fine antennae, she creates impulses for change processes - first in thinking, then in acting. I was lucky to be accompanied by Drissia in a transformation process. She´s inspiring!”

Professor for Management

“Drissia is an excellent Executive Coach who has a remarkable grasp on senior leadership ecosystem of Multinationals, who is very sharp when it comes to understanding and articulating systemic patterns, who always seems to know the right questions to ask. I am very fortunate to have worked with her and could not recommend her highly enough.”

“If you have extensive professional experience, have had a wide range of training, coaching and really good further education and are still faced with a question that you cannot answer to your satisfaction, then I recommend Drissia Schroeder-Hohenwarth. Her way of opening up new ways of thinking and self-reflection really convinced me. A big thank you for a remarkable coaching!”

Senior IT Leader

“We have already worked successfully with Drissia a few times. I can highly recommend her for facilitating workshops and larger meetings (e.g. executive meetings) as well as for working in 1:1 situations. Drissia's open-minded nature, her extremely high level of empathy, coupled with her intercultural experience and multilingualism, makes her a much sought-after contact person for us in HR and our people manager and employees. I look forward to many more opportunities to work together with Drissia. ”

Head of HR, E-commerce Company

“A transformative journey with an empathetic coach full of spirituality I have been privileged to work with an exceptional coach who not only has remarkable empathy but also brings a unique spiritual perspective. This experience was life-changing and I am incredibly grateful for my time with Drissia.

What sets her apart is, first, her ability to really understand my feelings and challenges. She listened carefully without judging and created a safe space for me to open up and share my innermost being. Her caring nature helped me feel understood and supported while focusing on my personal development.

I was also impressed by the spiritual dimension she brings into her work. She encouraged me to connect with my inner self, explore my beliefs and values, and view my life journey more clearly. Her gentle guidance and inspiring approach opened up new opportunities for me to develop my strengths and overcome obstacles.

What I particularly appreciated about Drissia was her holistic approach. She not only considered individual aspects of my life in isolation, but recognised the connections between body, mind and soul. She helped me reach the full potential of where I was.

The time I spent with this coach was a true journey of self-discovery. I have learned to understand myself better, overcome my fears and increase my self-confidence. Her sensitive and spiritual nature encouraged me to strive courageously towards my dreams.

I would recommend Drissia to anyone looking for a profound change in their life. She will accompany you on a journey that can positively influence your life forever. Thanks to Drissia, I feel more empowered, inspired and ready to shape my life in new and exciting ways.”

Frequently asked questions

Where did I learn to coach? I have a background as a clinical psychologist (Master’s degree from a Paris University). That´s my baseline. I then worked for about ten years in HR, where I had many career development conversations. Then, I completed my first qualification as a coach in 2006 at ISBW in Germany and followed this path with a year of Curriculum at Neuwaldegg in Vienna (Systemic Organisational Consulting) and Alain Cardon in Paris (Systemic Coaching). For the last ten years, I learned in the US with Byron Katie (The Work), Michael Neill, Dicken Bettinger, Linda and George Pransky, and Linda and Bill Pettit (the 3 Principles of Sydney Banks). Learning is a lifelong journey.

What about my corporate experience? Before launching my Company in 2007, I worked for about a decade in international and strategic HR Development roles, first for Daimler in Stuttgart and then for EADS/Airbus in Munich. Since then, I have worked with many other companies as a coach and consultant.

Where do I come from? My life is international and colourful. I grew up in Paris and now live in Germany and France. I am French with Moroccan roots and have lived and worked in South Africa for a few months and in London for almost six years. I have worked with so many cultures and countries on all continents that I feel I am more of a citizen of the world than anything else. I work with the same comfort in English, French, and German.

My Philosophy of Life? I have gone through great personal transformations in different stages of my life. I know how it feels and that it's possible. I have seen miracles in myself and others. Like everybody else, I had my share of life challenges. I learned a lot from them and made peace with my humanity. I am not afraid of emotions and integrate everything life offers on my journey. I go through life with an open mind and heart. Some life lessons I am the most grateful for are the ability to forgive and recover. I consider the possibility of expanding my consciousness and wisdom more and more an immense privilege.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me better, and I look forward to knowing more about you!

With Love,



Drissia Schroeder-Hohenwarth

Transformative Coach for Leaders, Teams and Organisations with a fascination for the endless potential of the mind.
