Dance Movement Psychotherapist/Body therapist in Germany
*Discounts for online sessions*
I guide you towards the experience of new vitality and connection to your personal resources when facing the challenges of life, by means of using the moving body.
I am a neuroscientist and dance movement therapist.
After having focussed on the human psyche from a more scientific perspective during my studies, I got to know the power of dance and body work when I moved to Berlin in 2011. I trained as a dance movement therapist to learn more about the many ways to address psychological problems by integrating verbal and body psychotherapy methods.
For me creative and bodily expression are the strongest source of clarity, depth and vitality within myself. Whenever I face a problem, I try to dance, write, sing, paint and move it – and I always feel more connected and clear afterwards.
My aims in life are to help and connect people and to support their personal growth.
Experiencing how my therapeutic work allows this makes me deeply happy and thankful.
My work is based on the assumption that body and mind are two inseparable units (as stated by the concept of embodiment).
I believe that all emotional, cognitive and spiritual experiences are lived out not only in our thoughts, but equally in the body.
Through working with the moving body, I thus aim at in integration of those levels. I want to help you find more connection to yourself, access your own resources and experience new possibilities when facing life’s challenges.
I hope to help you help yourself by supporting and witnessing your journey to and through your emotions and needs.
A typical session with me will always comprise of verbal as well as movement parts. I also like to integrate expressive painting, writing or voice work when applicable.
