I have been working with people of all stripes for almost 20 years: men, women, families, couples, children, teenagers. My clients have a wide variety of reasons for coming to see me: trauma, crisis, separation, addiction, relationship difficulties, loneliness, compulsions, anxiety, serious illness, depression,....
However, the first step is the same for everyone: to always look with a gentle eye at where "the shoe pinches". With me there is no long anamnesis or other impersonal methods, but we focus from the beginning, what you need now in the moment and in our encounter.
It doesn't matter if you feel like a "monster" yourself or if you find one in your life: with me you are welcome, exactly as you are right now!
It is very important for me to pick up everyone where he/she is right now, in his/her very special situation. From there, I support you in developing your own individual solution. In consultation with you, I draw on my tools from my psychology studies and my therapeutic training (Somatic Experiencing®, NARM, systemic family therapy, body therapy, humanistic therapy, talk therapy, hypnotherapy, art therapy, etc.), as well as on my relevant professional and personal experience.
The special point about my work is probably that I myself have been working on myself and my "monsters" for many years. Contrary to popular belief, we psychologists are only human as well!!
I grew up in a broken family, experienced physical and mental violence, had to cope with neglect and yet somehow continued on my life's path. Along the way, I developed many symptoms as a reaction to what I experienced, such as eating disorder, drug addiction, catastrophic self-image, codependency, anxiety, loneliness, self-rejection, depression, etc. I had no self-confidence at all, which I tried to compensate with pride and achievement. I was totally outside-oriented and had no access to what was really important to me: closeness, security, safety within myself and with others.
From my own experience I can assure you: There is a way out! I have experienced first hand what it is like to work your way out of the dark hole inside. Today I live happier and more content than ever before. I am full of gratitude for all the gifts I have received on my healing path and I pass them on with all my heart.
It is important to me not to impose any "patent remedies" on you. Everyone has his own way and his own solutions. These are as numerous as there are people. However, I can offer you my support and together with you create a safe and secure space in which your self-healing powers can unfold. Sometimes this can happen very quickly, but it can also take longer. It all depends on you and your individual situation. One thing is for sure: I will not give up hope. I have experienced too much for that myself.
Today is the first day of your new life. The mere fact that you have visited this page and even read down to here shows that you are already on the right path. Whether you continue on this path with me or with someone else: I wish you much strength, letting go and healing!
Because only through the healing - the becoming whole again - of each individual this world can recover. We all carry the wounds of the past within us, for some it is more obvious, for some it is buried deeper. But what we all have in common is that we not only carry incredible self-healing powers within us, but are capable of much more than we give ourselves credit for. Let's discover and develop your potential together, it's worth it!
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.
We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us;
It's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
