Psychotherapy

If people suffer from an emotionally unstable or negatively charged mood, they often lack the motivation to take care of their own health. Nutrition, sports and the quality of life can suffer and result in physical complaints. Due to the connection by the autonomic nervous system, these interactions become explicable and must be considered coherently.

Conversely, physical limitations will affect the psyche in the long run. If hobbies and everyday life can no longer be mastered, the person quickly becomes frustrated. This can cause a depressive mood by increasing the autonomic imbalance. The person distances himself from his environment, social contacts atrophy, and life takes an unhappy turn.

As is already known from numerous scientific studies, conversational psychotherapy can counteract the following complaints: Affective disorders (such as depression and bipolar disorder), anxiety and adjustment disorders, and physical illness.

Depression and/or constant brooding is something that affects many people, but is often underestimated in its impact on the life of the person as well as in the family environment. Especially when parents are affected, the children and the spouse often suffer as well. Especially children have problems to understand the complicated emotional world of the ill person and relate the mood to themselves and feel guilty. Such a constellation can lead to serious problems in the family structure but also for the future of the children. Here one should not stand idly by, but actively seek help. If one finds the source of the problem, a solution is also possible in most cases. This also applies, and perhaps even more so, to postpartum depression. Here, an attitude of reproach or the development of feelings of guilt is not uncommon and should not be accepted. There are various ways of stabilizing mood and emotions in a positive way.

The following focus areas are offered at “mental health management”:

  • Person-centred therapy: Unlike the image in many people´s minds, the client does not have to lie on a couch and talk about his or her childhood. In a few sessions, solution strategies are developed that are helpful in the context of everyday problems. Sources of problems are found and eliminated in a structured way, which can also have a positive effect on physical symptoms.
  • Autogenic training: relaxation method that leads to a reduction in the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. This results in a decrease in emotional and physical stress, which in turn can lead to a decrease in physical complaints such as headaches, abdominal or back pain, or even tinnitus. Autogenic training can be done individually or in groups.
  • Trauma therapy: traumatic experiences in the life of a person can lead to serious deterioration of the quality of life, depending on the mental/emotional constitution. The feeling of helplessness or of being at the mercy of others leaves traces that solidify in the personality and shape/influence the person´s everyday life and self-esteem. This situation, however, only has disadvantages and can be significantly improved by finding real solutions to the problem, so that the quality of life increases and decision-making processes and thus the ability to act in life are simplified.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: our behavior is shaped by the experiences of many years, upbringing and environmental influences. In this process, behavioral patterns develop, which can sometimes be advantageous, but sometimes also disadvantageous. If you recognize the latter situation in your life, you have to ask yourself what sense this behavior pattern has or had and if/how you can change it. Here our attitudes, thoughts and emotions play a decisive role. Within the framework of behavioral therapy we work out the meaning and origin of the behavior and gradually replace it with a desired and beneficial behavior that is also suitable for the person in question.
  • Couples counseling: Which couple never has arguments? Quarrels with your partner, recurring problems and fruitless discussions, but also problems to keep or fill a relationship… In the course of a relationship, even small things like saying “thank you” or expressing love can already have a positive effect on our emotional world. Often things are taken for granted, and there is a lack of such or similar appreciative words, which in the long run can be the basis for deterioration of the relationship. Both unhappy singles and unhappy couples wanting an improvement of their relationship should consider seeking counseling, as loneliness is an increasingly common problem and should not be trivialized. But the loss of a partner can also be a reason to be overwhelmed in life with otherwise everyday problems. Here, too, it is legitimate and advisable to seek counseling.
