Hi, I’m Patricia Schwarz.
Over the past six year, I’ve guided, motivated and supported people who want to create success from the inside out: the modern-day professionals who want to create a “workstyle” that truly corresponds to who they are and the social and creative entrepreneurs who want to turn their ideas into businesses.
I’ve created this business after having explored two avenues that have led me to a profound reflection on my life and that became the base for my coaching program CORE THERAPY.
My first career path was as an international basketball player. I played on the Swiss National Team and I got a full-scholarship at the College of Charleston in South Carolina to play basketball in the university league in the world. Basketball has been a passion and a rich source of experiences that I use everyday: perseverance, team spirit, setting personal objectives for a higher common mission and how to motivate and expect the best from others.
My second career path has been in the corporate world as a marketing and communications executive. Over a period of 15 years, I was fortunate to travel extensively and work in Boston. Leading press meetings in New York City, developing national and international marketing strategies, organizing tradeshows in Las Vegas and touring Europe to promote a new brand of athletic footwear has given me a rich overview of how business is done across borders. I’ve learned to be creative, innovative and open-minded.
Meeting and engaging with people from around the globe has inspired me. Learning coaching and personal development techniques has provided an understanding and a desire to work with people and to help them to achieve their desires. Personal difficulties with health and an intense work crisis has taught me how to pick up the pieces, rebuilt around personal values and strengths and how to recreate a lifestyle of meaning, strong relationships and vitality.
My wish is that through my CORE THERAPY program, I’ll inspire you to look within, find your unique personal strengths and build a life that truly reflects your desires. My motivation to do it is that I believe that if everyone engages in something they love and are truly good at, the world would be a much more peaceful, happier and fair place.

Les valeurs représentent notre essence, ce qui est important pour nous. Voici les miennes.
J’aime travailler dans des environnements qui sont créatifs et offrent des opportunités de bouger, de la place pour grandir et la flexibilité pour m’organiser à ma façon dans le but de remplir ma mission.
Afin de rester motivée et enthousiaste, j’ai besoin que mes activités contribue à une mission plus grande où je sens que j’évolue. J’élargis mes horizons en apprenant des choses nouvelles à travers des livres, des formations et des voyages. Cela me permet de rester branchée et pleine d’énergie.
J’aime être entourée de personnes qui sont curieuses, érudites et surtout inspirées : cela m’inspire ! Et quand je suis inspirée, j’ai beaucoup d’énergie à partager et pour lancer des grands projets.
Utiliser des couleurs vives, des beaux mots, des idées fraîches et des chemins nouveaux pour atteindre mes interlocuteurs et explorer de nouvelles façons de faire, c’est ce qui me fait avancer. Je me sens utile et connectée aux autres.
L’intégrité est liée à la confiance : la confiance en les autres et surtout la confiance en mes propres ressentis. Il s’agit de faire les choses en alignement avec moi-même, mes valeurs et le plus haut bien. Il s’agit d’être responsable pour aujourd’hui et demain.
Ce que je considère comme « fun », c’est que mes activités soient agréables, légères et contribuent à plus de paix. Quand je m’amuse, je me sens énergisée et ouverte.
