About me
Larissa Maria Bednar

I am fire and water. Cotton and steel. Diamond and ash. Stable and flexible. Cold and warm. 
And yet one.

What inspires me about my work?

My passion is the release of hidden power and fear issues in relation to forgiveness work in teams, leadership and everyday life. I am inspired by the opportunity to work with you in a neutral and impartial way to develop sustainable solutions.


I facilitate honest contact between all parties involved, characterised by transparency and commitment. It is important to me that a safe framework is created where everyone can speak freely and their needs/expectations are seen and recognised.


My attitude - I


...observe very analytically, sharply, precisely, intuitively, question bluntly.

...encourage self-organisation and responsibility (e.g. in finding teleological solutions).

...recognise and question preconceptions about people, processes and hidden games. with the group/team and each individual, not against them.

...include any opposing opinions, attitudes. with resistance/projections calmly and offer solutions/clarification. attention to non-verbal signals.

  • and challenge provocations and accusations.

  • ...differentiate and integrate all components of the process in a creative, intuitive way.

  • ...encourage a flexible attitude, "both and", "as the case may be" ....

  • ...have a deep trust in people's abilities, giving them calmness, confidence and trust.

  • ...remain calm when confusion, rejection, uncertainty arise.

  • ...create conditions in which rich interactions can take place and from which awareness, insight and understanding can emerge.

  • ...demonstrate the unspeakable importance of forgiving oneself and others.

The essence of my work is trust, respect, calm, clarity and non-judgement.


I advise clearly, directly, humorously, figuratively, dynamically. Always with sensitivity and knowing when which way is appropriate. Intuitive acting/feeling cannot always be justified, you should be aware of this when I accompany you. This highly sensitive sensor is innate in me; it has always guided me correctly and made me feel things!
