About me

Throughout my life I have been fascinated on human behavior and had a desire to help people achieve their goals. It was this that brought me to study coaching. In 2012, I finished the CTI Coach Training Program (CTI) and also certified as a practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), including Time Line Therapy and Hypnotherapy with Coresenses. Following this I completed an NLP and Life Coach Certification with Robert Simic (RSCI). I studied the Wim Hof Breathing and Ice Bath method since 2019, and have helped many people to feel comfortable in ice since. Wim Hof’s method is simple, efficient and accessible; the results are obvious.

During this journey, I discovered a new passion to support people find their happiness. With combined efforts, perceptions are changed, patterns broken and the outcome is a positive, fulfilled, healthier and happier life.

I was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1964 and my childhood was spent in the countryside and this was the foundation for my love of nature. My career in banking took me to London, Geneva, Milan, Zurich and since 2005 I am in Dubai where I founded and continue to manage a Consulting and Executive Search firm. When I’m not creating happiness for others, I find my own happiness with my family and passion for the outdoors, including motorbiking, tennis, photography and hiking.

What an amazing experience as a desert sunrise hiking with my parents, 75 and 72 years old, lifetime memory! It is a must do... Benoit is just making it smooth with specific breathing methods to enjoy a foot ice bath after the hike. A unique moment!

Amazing walk in the desert, Benoit is a great guide and he gives a lot of good advises especially on the breathing techniques to be able to walk better during the climb. The meditation is also a very good part of the trek, I was impressed by its format. I spent a very good morning with Benoit and I learnt a few things about how to take care of my health. I highly recommend Benoit!

Welcoming, Scientific, Motivating and Warm experiece (until you get in the ice bucket! Haha!). Benoit and Roy know how to hold space for seekers who want to break through their mental limitations, in an environment where people from all walks of life can gather without judgement or competition. Benoit is very clear and concise in his approach and treats each participant with a sense of knowing. I definitely recommend sessions with his team and look forward to attending again soon.
