Franziska Maria Cecchetti-Pretsch

Advanced Facilitator of Systemic Constellations, NLP Business Practitioner & Life Coach

Hi, my name is Franziska.
I am a Social Paedagogy Practitioner, Systemic Life Coach and Systemic Facilitator.
I bring together the practical tools of my Social Paedagogy training and experience with the deep inner work of systemic facilitation.
I have 20 years experience in working with people from very different ways of life and cultural backgrounds.
My business is called Barefoot Humans.
This name came because I am passionate about being barefoot, connected to the earth but also connected to my roots. 
Being barefoot together also means showing our real authentic selves and not to hide who we really are and how we feel.
We have to take the shoes off that we normally hide behind and be willing to show our bare feet to really connect.
I bring you closer again with your true inner nature and what this means in your own unique way.
We are all humans, all born barefoot.
We are always part of nature, but also part of a long line of ancestors that lived before us.
The stories of these people have an influence on us and we often follow patterns also unconsciously that we picked up from people before us.
We have a lot in common, but we also have a unique life’s path because of each individual line of ancestors that only we have.
If we re-connect again to our own rootedness, the wisdom of our ancestors and to our own inner resources, we can walk through life more stable, with more ease and clarity.
Especially also connecting to the wisdom of the specific culture or country we are coming from can bring us so much more strength and resources for life.
And this is not something we learn anywhere in our modern lives so we need to choose to come back to it ourselves.
I can see the disconnectedness and the unrootedness of people all around me and in the world.
Especially when working with teenagers and children I can sense every time how they don’t have a strong ground to stand on.
They feel very unresourced and anxious about life and taking any steps forward.
It’s up to us adults to do our own inner work to get to a more rooted way of living so that we can also pass this on to our children and the next generations.
If you could do with some more rootedness and strength in your life right now and somehow you feel stuck where you are at, then this might be for you.
Often we only realise when we are already in a crisis that we might need support, but reaching out early makes the next steps a lot easier.
Connecting to your own resources brings you support that lasts your whole life.
As when you know that clarity, resources and ancestral strength is already within you, you can never lose it again.
I work with adults, women and men, individuals and couples, as well as with teenagers, whole families and professionals.
This work shows you clearly the hidden dynamics that are behind any issues you are experiencing and gives you a deeper understanding where you are at.
The so called living map supports you in getting more clarity and in accessing your own solutions and next steps forward.
My clients have their own way to describe the effects of our work together on their lives:
“After our work together, somehow everything fell into place and made sense”
“I feel calmer about my life and trusting myself to find solutions”
“More ease and calmness in my life”
“More at ease with my body and having more energy”
“The Fran-Effect: I feel always so free and more able to be fully myself after our work together” :-)
My own background is my ancestral place Bavaria and its amazing mountains and rivers.
My ancestors were people from the land and lived very aligned with nature and the earth’s resources.
This is what fuels me in my own work too and supports me to be of the deepest service to anyone I work with.
My work is in English and German.
My sessions can be accessed from anywhere in the world online, which works just as well as in person.
I also do walk and talk sessions in local parks in my local area.
If you feel this could be of benefit for you, then just reach out.
We have a first 30 minutes free call to talk about your situation and what could support you.
Then we decide together how to move forward.
Just email me or message from this page
Or you can connect to me via the link to my Facebook page above

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
Blessings, Franziska

I am a life long learner and seeker, with a passion for travelling and getting to know the world and people in all places in life. I am fascinated by the uniqueness and variety of people and their individual life experiences and life situations.


I bring all of my creativity and presence into this work. Being highly committed to my own growth, I always seek ways to improve my own abilities and reach further out of my own comfort zone. I work very flexible and in the moment, working wherever you are at in your life right now.


I always try to get to know you in your unique place in life to benefit you the most. Having worked with so many different people of different ages, stages in life and cultures, I tune into your own space and what is required for you right now. We work together in a very safe and flexible space, enabling you to find your own answers and steps forward.


Having been a leader over many years, I am able to do this work from a stable and strong place within myself, allowing you to explore and find out what you need whilst guiding you in your process. What I love about constellations work is that it's gentle yet so powerful and life changing, with the widest possible view on your situation, including all that you are and all the possible ways forward. It makes you a lot more connected to your life and your potential and makes you use your inner resources to the fullest. As leaders this is so crucial to prevent burn out and health issues in this fast paced world.


My own daily commitments are also in connecting to nature every day so you will find me outside every day, running barefoot and enjoying meditation and yoga. My unique personality trait is to live as much barefoot as I can, either totally without shoes or with barefoot shoes. I believe the most powerful work comes from being connected to the ground and my own inner strongest place and inner resources at all times. And this is what I am committed to do to bring the most beneficial work to you all every day!

What People Say


I'd also like to say that the appointments I have had with you have made such a big difference to my life. Although it's been hard cutting things out of my diet, I can't believe how much my skin has improved since my appointment with you. I will continue to recommend you to my family and friends because as I have said, the appointments I have had with you over the years have improved my well-being so much!

I was very impressed by the service from Integral Health. I was contacted and offered an appointment immediately after contacting the centre. Ben Calder gave me excellent advice and managed to sort out my issues in only one session.I would highly recommend this clinic.

Got an appointment through really quickly. The staff were really friendly and made the procedures and testing easy to understand throughout, step by step. Really pleased with the outcome. Finally got the answers I was looking for and would highly recommend.

Great service from Ben and his team. If you want your aches and pains sorting out or if you feel your life just isn't in balance you really should give Integral Health a try...

I feel like Ive come such a long way since my first session with you and I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for the treatments and advice youve given me Thank you Ben!!!

Had several neuro-energetic kinesiology appointments at the Centre and found the experience to be very beneficial and eye-opening. Would recommend to anyone. 5 star

I used the centre to help training and preparation for a marathon. As well as getting some great advice around technique and training, I was also introduced to Bowen Technique which helped repair a slight hamstring injury and also Kinesiology which allowed me to design a bespoke training diet. Would definitely recommend.

Went very well. Was very happy with how friendly and welcoming it all was, and the treatment was at the highest quality.

I would like to thank Wan, for a deep tissue and stone massage, it's an experience that I've never had before, already booked for next week, I would recommend this to anyone, please look at there website as there are numerous things to do within the complex.

Wow! As I left my session with the amazingly knowledgeable Ben Calder I said: I feel lighter! I feel so light because I now know what my body does and does not like. I cannot stop talking to everyone about how amazing Ben is! Everyone should go and see him! What an amazing soul Ben is! Super grateful that our lives crossed

I had four Bowen sessions each about three weeks apart, after the first session I felt a notable difference in my posture and in the strength of my spine, strangely I felt taller. By the fourth session I knew that my discomfort had been resolved and I am now able to move much more freely and flexibly without worrying about my back.

Love the Qigong classes Ben runs. Professional, safe and informative. Thanks Ben

Went there yesterday for my first yoga session. It's a great little place. Didn't know it was there until a few months ago. I also go there often to have a massage which I love!

I highly recommend the Centre for Integral Health. I've been here for multiple sessions with Ben Calder, and honestly, you need to go and experience it for yourself. Friendly, professional and just a generally positive experience all around! The Centre offers such a range of services, I can't wait to try out a few of the other therapies they offer!

Before I had a series of Bowen sessions I had lived with lower back pain and discomfort for over ten years. I chose the Bowen technique as I wanted to be treated by a practitioner who understood that the body is a whole system. The technique itself is not invasive or stressful on the body as the underlying approach is that with the right support, time and gentle encouragement the body can heal.

I am sure that if it wasnt for your classes, the function in my left bicep would have not come back. Also I would have not been able to recover from my chemotherapy so quickly, I can not thank you enough.

I've been working with Ben for just over a year now and have found his support incredibly helpful. Most recently, Ben has taught me specific techniques for managing emotional response and staying calm and in control during moments of extreme pressure. Ben's walk and talk sessions are fantastic and I would highly recommend him!
