As someone who values authenticity, Johann integrates a psychodynamic approach with attachment elements in his clinical work. Pursuing a doctorate in Applied Clinical Psychology, Johann specializes in addressing anxiety, family and relationship issues, and challenges with gender identity and sexuality, grounding his practice in the exploration of the unconscious mind and early attachment experiences. He explores how these early attachment experiences—affect current interpersonal relationships and emotional patterns.
Johann's approach is underpinned by key psychodynamic principles such as transference and countertransference, allowing a deeper understanding of the client's internal world. He creates a safe and non-judgmental space, encouraging clients to explore their deepest thoughts and feelings, often hidden from their conscious awareness.
By helping clients understand their life experiences, he assists them in developing healthier relationships with the self and others. Johann invites those seeking to understand the deep-seated roots of their emotional struggles and desire a transformative therapeutic experience to embark on this journey with him.
