Focus areas and working methods

Psychotherapy is indicated for a variety of symptoms and emotional conditions. The following are the focal areas of my therapeutic work at my practice:

  • Adolescent crises, problems in school, test anxiety, learning problems
  • Mobbing, demotivation in school
  • Addiction problems, aggression
  • Stressful life events
  • Life crises, burnout
  • Loss and grieving
  • Internal tension and feelings of emptiness, depression, despondency
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Anxiety, compulsions, eating disorders
  • Trauma
  • Relationship problems, separation or divorce
  • Psychosomatic symptoms

In therapy we work together towards becoming aware of internal psychological conflicts, with the goal of recognising, understanding and processing these conflicts in order to enable change.

The objective of therapy is the alleviation of emotional suffering or at least reduction of detrimental symptoms.
