There are two basic motivations for seeking out a psychotherapist. Some people need someone who can empathize with one’s own emotional situation 1 on 1. Others are in search for solutions to one or more problems they are facing in their lives currently. The cornerstone of successful therapy is trust and clear communication, and if done correctly, much can be achieved in just a few sessions. In the course of their lives, most people develop automatic behavioral and thought processes that cloud an objective analysis of their own emotional life. Through targeted conversations and appropriate methods, as well as relaxation procedures, the client begins to form a new and objective picture of his or her individual situation and draws consequences accordingly. Just as we take responsibility in various areas of our lives, we should apply this to our health as well. This includes physical health, but also emotional and mental health. In today’s world, this is greatly underestimated and often not adequately addressed.
The focus of my counseling is in the areas of trauma and couples therapy as well as personality coaching and uses the following methods:
- Person-centred therapy (according to Carl Rogers)
- Trauma therapy (David Grand)
- Autogenic training
