Approach

I want to create an atmosphere, in which patients feel comfortable; ideally that we can meet naturally on the same level. My perspective on therapy is undogmatically oriented towards what is helpful and valuable in the eye of the patient. Therefore, I try to stay flexible and like to work with different approaches. I am convinced that therapy should not only consist of neutral talk but also stimulate a patient’s experience, for we learn profoundly when insight is guided by emotions. I consider the different approaches of therapy (i.e. CBT, systemic or psychodynamic therapy) as important complementary perspectives for a holistic understanding of the human being. Personally, I feel most connected and comfortable with treatments that belong to the so-called “third wave” of CBT, with its focus on mindfulness, emotion and interaction. My preferred approach is the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT, Hayes) with its conception of psychological suffering as an inherent part of life. However, I am also influenced by Schema Therapy (Young), Emotion Focussed Therapy (EFT, Greenberg) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT, Gilbert). Generally I like to focus on a person’s
 a) needs and their ways of realization in so-called plans/ scripts
 and b) schemas, modes and different aspects of identity
which are formed throughout a person’s biography. I am also interested in narrative techniques; to reflect, constitute and/or rewrite a person’s perceiving of self, others and/or life; as well as finding a meaning to it as proposed in Logotherapy (Frankl).
I appreciate diversity not only in my everyday life, but my professional life too. I feel committed to support people with all kinds of different cultural background, gender identity or disability and (from a privileged point of view) I try to educate myself in a more profound understanding of their reality.
