Das Wichtigste zuerst: Ich wünsche Dir und allen die Dir nahestehen während dieser außergewöhnlichen Zeit von Herzen alles Gute. Ich wünsche es jedem Menschen. Als ausgebildete Diplom-Psychologin (Universität Hamburg) hatte ich das Glück unter Professor Dr. Reinhard Tausch zu studieren. Ergebnisse meiner Diplom-Arbeit zum Thema 'Lebenssinn' zitierte er z.B. in seinem Buch: 'Hilfen bei Stress und Belastung'. Ich biete Gesprächspsychotherapie an, wobei ich mitunter hilfreiche Ansätze von anderen Therapien integriere. Ziel ist für mich Dich derart zu begleiten, daß Du Dir klarer bist über das was für Dich am Besten ist.
Unsere Gespräche sind interaktiv. Mein Beruf ist für mich eher eine Berufung, bei der ich mit Einfühlungsvermögen und Akzeptanz an Deiner Seite stehe. Dabei bin ich immer Mensch und die Mitmenschlichkeit unserer therapeutischen Beziehung ist nach meiner Erfahrung sehr ausschlaggebend im Therapie-Erfolg. DU entscheidest wie tief Du in Deine Tiefe gehst.
Damit Du Dir einen besseren Eindruck verschaffen kannst, schlage ich vor wir telefonieren for ca. 5-10 Minuten miteinander - kostenfrei für Dich. Im Gespräch klären wir auch die 'administrativen' Dinge, damit wir uns in der ersten Sitzung völlig auf Deine Bewegründe konzentrieren können. Ruf' mich an oder email mir für unser telefonisches Erstgespräch.
I wish you during these extraordinary times of Covid - and any other challenges - the very best for yourself and those close to you. My practice is open by for in person and video sessions. I am here for you to talk about your emotional, psychological and spiritual/transpersonal and mindfulness issues. I taught at Universities and present at conferences. With 25+ years of practice I offer you a fully confidential space to explore your feelings and thoughts e.g. about anxiety, depression, suicide, relationships, boredom, death and dying, and meaning in life. And I am here for you for any other issue you wish to talk about.
My approach is interactive. With my vast clinical experience and additional trainings annually, I remain human in our dialogues. I put your uniqueness first. In a safe environment and trusting therapeutic relationship you can discuss your innermost thoughts, feelings and beliefs, where I accept you the way you are and support you in what you wish to change.
For your wellbeing I find it important that we 'get on', 'get each other' and that you can make an informed choice. Please email me or call me for a free about 10 minutes chat to find out more about my service and to discuss any 'admin' things upfront for clarity from the start. That way we can focus upon your reasons for coming in your first session.
