WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?

Psychotherapy is the collaboration between patient and psychotherapist to work through the psychological and emotional issues by talking about it. In our working alliance you can talk about the your feelings, problems, living situation and other personal themes, so that you can learn something about yourself and your previous behavioral patterns. The goal of therapy or analysis is always decided by you. However, it often has to do with lowering the psychological strain that you are under. For further information, please look on the website of the responsible ministry or on psyonline.

HOW DO I WORK?

For me the human being is the focus, as well as his wishes, expectations and goals.
The focus of your therapy is YOU!

Because the focus of therapy is you, the path of therapy tends not to be straight, but with curves and bumps along the way. Exactly this path can be enriching because it is not about the destination, but about how you get there.

My method is psychoanalysis, which sounds a little bit old fashioned, but as all methods have, psychoanalysis has developed. If wished for, I still treat individuals with classical psychoanalysis, however I also work as a psychoanalytic therapist. For me psychoanalysis is a wonderful foundation to build upon. Of course, some theories come from a different time, but they are helpful fundamental blocks to which modern blocks can be added. Your childhood can be a significant aspect to that because it can help to better understand ourselves and our feelings and mechanisms. Why do I keep apologizing even though I don't want to?

However, it does not mean that your childhood will have to looked at or worked through. That decision is something that is completely up to you! I am there to support you on your path, but the direction is up to you.

My psychotherapeutic Settings:

Infant Psychotherapy Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
