Frank Pfitzner

Psychodynamic therapist

The knowledge about recovery as well as your personal solutions lie within you. I gladly accompany you towards freeing this knowledge and thus removing obstacles from your path of growth and healing.

About

I have always been interested in a deeper understanding of us humans - our being, our problems and our healing. Originating from East Berlin I followed the invitation of the opened wall and set out to live, study and work for several years in the United States, Canary Islands and in Peru. In Germany I put a solid professional base with master studies in psychology, a very inspiring psychotherapy formation in an oficial institute and a lot of direct work with patients in a variety of clinical fields.

My Approach

I´m a fully accredited clinical psychotherapist here in Berlin. I studied psychodynamic, body-orientated and Gestalt Therapy approaches and deepend my background with trainings in traumatherapy and a more soulful approach to human crisis and growth. I studied Yoga and enthusiastically spend some years working in an intercultural setting in the peruvian amazon.
C.G. Jung once said, that for every patient you would have to invent a new form of therapy. So - drawing on all those experiences - I try to find a fitting language and an honest and heartful therapeutic relation with each person.

FRAME & CONDITIONS:
I work in two offices: One in the Böhmische Strasse 47a (Berlin-Neukölln) and one in the Bölschestraße 66 (Berlin-Friedrichshagen).

As an accredited therapist I can settle the payment with all private insurances and some of the "gesetzliche Krankenkassen".

I offer a sliding scale/social fare for those in financial hardship.
