My psychotherapeutic methods

I treat mental disorders in adults with an integrative form of behavioral therapy that combines classic methods with new approaches. In addition, I work with relaxation techniques and coping techniques for better stress management.

In coaching, it is my job to increase one's own efficiency in working or private life for clients by tapping personal resources and potentials in a guided and purposefully designed development process. 

 Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT assumes that the way we think determines our feelings and physical reactions. The change of thought patterns and behaviors positively influences emotions.

 Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

The REBT assumes that the human being as a goal-oriented and social being suffers from being blocked by  blocking attitudes and feelings in the achievement of his goals. The aim of REVT is to recognize and change these irrational, self-damaging and non-targeted assessments.

 Strategic short-term therapy (SST)

The SST as a variant of behavioral therapy assumes that learned and helpful in earlier stages of life survival rules prove inappropriate in later stages of life and thereby cause harm. These unsuitable survival rules are transformed by mindfulness and acceptance into functional survival rules.

 Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)

The ACT assumes that psychological suffering arises from the fight against feelings and thoughts. It is alleviated or eliminated by recognizing this chanceless and exhausting struggle and accepting the triggered emotions. This allows for greater self-confidence and opens up new perspectives for action.
