I was born in Munich as the middle child with two siblings. After school, I studied (astro)physic with the goal to explore the widths of the universe. I changed my career of the bachelor degree out of the passion doing work directly with people and started my psychology diploma at the university of Tübingen. At the same time I assisted over several years in different hypnotherapy curricula and learned directly from the best hypnotherapist of Europe (Milton Erickson Foundation, Deutscher Verband für Hypnose, Society of NLP). In one of the organizations (MEG), I’m a lecturer in hypnotherapy on my own today.
I’m trained in CBT, Gestalt Therapy, EMDR and systemic therapy as part of my diploma, but I mostly focus on hypnotherapy interventions. Furthermore, I have collected over 10 years of experience in Buddhist Meditation, that also strongly influence my style of therapy. My main goal is to provide a heart- centered place, where people feel safe and protected.
I believe in creating a thoroughly safe and warm environment in coaching/therapy, where clients can be radically honest and experience relief, understanding and healing. This creates the right basis to become bigger than the own circumstances and to evolve and grow past the problems you are currently experiencing.
On the one hand I adopt a “scientist-practitioner” approach, meaning that our work is informed by empirical research. On the other hand and in the words of C.G. Jung, “for every patient you would have to invent a new form of therapy”, every therapy is custom-made.
I believe all 'maladaptive behaviors', whether manifested in one's life through stress, isolation, addiction, depression, anxiety or various 'disorders' (eg. personality or eating disorders), are merely creative adjustments to one's environment. Often, these “waking up call” help us to reassess our deep inner core and our sense of coherence. The science of positive psychology furthermore shape my style of work, which is strongly resource-orientated.
