Together we are on the way and I accompany you with my professional background, my experience as a person and with my value for each individual life. To strengthen self-compassion, the perception of mind and body and their reactions and resources will enhance the quality of life. This will open up possibilities to find more sense in life and to use more creativity to deal with critical life events and problems, illness and difficult relationships in private and professional life.

 

At the beginning the exploration of methods and techniques will lead the way in which the personality will find space to unfold. To cope with life and feel ground, which sometimes gets lost will be the focus of working together. The ability to feel ground again in its concrete and symbolic meaning is important to feel safe: in oneself, with ambient factors and in relationships. Once humans feel safe and are present, they are able to feel more relatedness and connection to oneself, in relationships, to others and the environment - depending on the individual goal. The nervous system responds in general and provides the basis for change.

 

Besides interventions from Schema Therapy and mindful training to support behavioral change, I include the unconscious and its resources. Symbols in dreams, fairy tales, painted pictures, imaginations and in complex relationships are giving hints for possible solutions and new paths. They come up within oneself or through the therapeutic and analytical process. A trustful therapeutic relationship, elements from different Body Therapies and Focusing complete my applied methods.
