Psychotherapy

In my private practice I work in psychotherapy in an integrative way. The person-centered therapy can be wonderfully combined with the emotion-focused approach. I look at the needs of my clients and offer different ways of working.
This integrative work has proven to be very effective in my practice. But what is more important to me than methods, is that you can develop trust in our work in order to feel safe to reflect on your issues in a protected atmosphere.

Common issues in my work with clients:

Depression
Fear
Grief
Low self-esteem
Relationship Problems

What is Emotion Focused Therapy?

The emotion-focused approach (EFT) is science based and starts from the idea that emotions are vital processes that help us to cope with life. They enable us to listen to our needs. But emotions can also block us and make life difficult. Sometimes we find our emotions chaotic or we find them hard to bear, such as sadness, anger and hatred.

How can Emotion Focused Therapy help me?

EFT wants to help people to perceive their emotions and to deal with stressful emotions in a way that is helpful for them.
Trust between clients and therapists is a central aspect of this process. In a safe atmosphere, clients learn to express and understand their feelings and also how to regulate them in a healthy way.

Clients determine what issues and emotions they want to work on and discuss an appropriate way of working with their therapists. A variety of interventions and techniques can be used to achieve set goals.
Emotion focused therapy works with the principles of emotional change. The goal is to transform dysfunctional emotional experiences by using existing helpful emotions.

 

Counselling can help:
  • to reduce anxiety
  • to reduce depressive moods by getting to know your own inner dialogue
  • to transform anger
  • to replace critical and judgmental inner voices with a loving approach to oneself

What is Person-Centered Psychotherapy?

Person-centered therapy is an approach used worldwide and goes back to the American psychologist Carl Rogers, co-founder of humanistic psychology.
The medium of therapy or counselling is conversation/talking in order to promote contact with oneself and also with the therapist. Clients decide what they want to talk about and how deep they want to get into topics. Therapists mirror and reflect on the client's process.

How can Person-Centered Therapy help?

The person-centred approach assumes an inherent potential in a person, which can unfold in appreciative and authentic encounters with other people.
The clients are regarded as experts in their own lives. The therapists work and live in an atmosphere of acceptance, appreciation, empathy and authenticity towards their clients. This environment allows growth processes in which clients can build more trust in themselves and their environment. This enables clients to recognise their own needs and increasingly learn to take care of themselves.

 

Areas of application of the Person-Centered Therapy

There are a few mental disorders or impairments that do not benefit from talking therapy. But for the majority of people the possibility of self-directed, fear-free work on one's own solutions and strategies enables an increase in the joy of learning and living.
