When we are no longer able to change a situation — we are challenged to change ourselves.”

Inner-Path Psychotherapy

Welcome

In my online psy­chother­a­py I can offer you pro­fes­sion­al and indi­vid­ual sup­port in your per­son­al sit­u­a­tion to find new ways to more joy, san­i­ty and sat­is­fac­tion in life. My back­ground as ful­ly trained psy­chother­a­pist from Ger­many guar­an­tees a high pro­fes­sion­al stan­dard where­as my wide back­ground in var­i­ous dif­fer­ent ther­a­peu­tic and spir­i­tu­al tra­di­tions as well a my atti­tude of work­ing pro­vides an inte­gra­tive and holis­tic approach and the pos­si­bil­i­ty for a per­son­al, warm and effec­tive psy­chother­a­py. The frame­work of online psy­chother­a­py gives the chance for a max­i­mum of flex­i­bil­i­ty and con­fi­den­tial­i­ty while pro­vid­ing a frame­work for pro­found heal­ing work and deep emo­tion­al explo­ration.

Among oth­er things I can help you in the fol­low­ing requests:

  • Almost any kind of men­tal suf­fer­ing like depres­sion, anx­i­ety, eat­ing dis­or­ders or per­sis­tent neg­a­tive emo­tions.
  • In phas­es of dis­ori­en­ta­tion like dur­ing life-changes, crises or times of reori­en­ta­tion
  • In part­ner­ship con­flicts or oth­er social dif­fi­cul­ties
  • In the wish to go deep­er in explor­ing your­self or to be accom­pa­nied in the devel­op­ment of your own per­son­al­i­ty

Addi­tion­al to my gen­er­al psy­chother­a­peu­tic work I offer spe­cial­ized psy­chother­a­py for ‘high­ly sen­si­tive per­sons’ as well as psy­chother­a­peu­tic con­sul­ta­tion for peo­ple on a spir­i­tu­al path, both based on many years of the­o­ret­i­cal study and prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence.

If you are inter­est­ed or if you have ques­tions feel wel­come to con­tact me!

What is Inner-Path Psychotherapy?

About my Work

If we look at the vari­ety of psy­chother­a­peu­tic schools and offers, it shows that there is no such thing as ‘the psy­chother­a­py’. Sim­i­lar to pol­i­tics or reli­gion, there is a mul­ti­plic­i­ty of com­pet­ing views and offers that are often com­ple­men­tary, but in many cas­es even incom­pat­i­ble. The cen­tral con­cern of both, psy­cho­dy­nam­ic and expe­ri­en­tial psy­chother­a­py is the widen­ing and deep­en­ing of the aware­ness of one’s own being and one’s own way of func­tion­ing. What makes most peo­ple look out for psy­chother­a­peu­tic help is suf­fer­ing, which is usu­al­ly due to the fact that at some points of our lives we don’t man­age to orga­nize think­ing, feel­ing and act­ing in a way that it serves ours needs and leads to the expe­ri­ence of abun­dance, vital­i­ty and vital­i­ty. The com­mon attempt to change one’s own expe­ri­ence, feel­ings and behav­ior by self-blame, inner sev­er­ance, dis­ci­pline or avoid­ing it by dis­trac­tion, repres­sion and all kinds of addic­tions usu­al­ly doesn’t lead to sat­is­fac­to­ry results, but to dis­ap­point­ment from life and inner res­ig­na­tion.

The ther­a­peu­tic approach at this point is the lov­ing and mind­ful explo­ration of one’s own being, which is often only pos­si­ble in the com­pa­ny of a benev­o­lent, famil­iar and secu­ri­ty-giv­ing per­son. In such a frame­work, where are no exter­nal demands on one’s own func­tion­ing, an inner explo­ration of those lay­ers of our being can take place, which seem­ing­ly oppose our influ­ence as we were deeply hurt there, feel ashamed or which already become per­pet­u­al habits. Through this mind­ful and lov­ing under­stand­ing in com­mon explo­ration as well as through the mul­ti­ple meth­ods of inner work, these lay­ers of our inner being become acces­si­ble to relax­ation, heal­ing, and final­ly change — even where we already gave up hope.

Psychotherapy can be one of the greatest and most rewarding adventures, it can bring with it the deepest feelings of personal worth, of purpose and richness in living.”

About Me

The explo­ration of our psy­cho­log­i­cal struc­ture and the path­ways to deep trans­for­ma­tion and heal­ing is one of my main inter­ests since my late youth, both on a per­son­al as well as on a pro­fes­sion­al lev­el. Fol­low­ing this inter­est I absolved the com­plete Ger­man train­ing as a pro­fes­sion­al psy­chother­a­pist, which means six years of uni­ver­si­ty stud­ies in psy­chol­o­gy at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg as well as a four years full time train­ing in psy­cho­dy­nam­ic psy­chother­a­py at WIAP in Wies­baden, giv­ing me the full recog­ni­tion as psy­chother­a­pist by the Ger­man health sys­tem. With this back­ground after one year of work in a psy­chi­atric hos­pi­tal I had my own prac­tice for psy­chother­a­py in Ger­many for sev­er­al years, work­ing with a wide range of clients, from peo­ple suf­fer­ing from seri­ous men­tal dis­or­ders to peo­ple main­ly inter­est­ed in deep­er inner explo­ration or per­son­al growth.

Next to this I always had a strong inter­est­ed to find out about approach­es enrich­ing this knowl­edge with a wider and more inte­gra­tive per­spec­tive of the human being and absolved train­ings in the two main approach­es of Expe­ri­en­tial Psy­chother­a­py, the Per­son Cen­tered Approach fol­low­ing Carl Rogers and Gestalt Ther­a­py. Beyond for­mal train­ings since my time at Uni­ver­si­ty I want­ed to get to know the whole spec­trum of psy­chother­a­peu­tic work and made a lot of per­son­al expe­ri­ence in most of the exist­ing psy­chother­a­peu­tic tra­di­tions.

Beyond all ques­tions of train­ing the fit­ting of ther­a­pist and client is very much a mat­ter of per­son­al res­o­nance and can only be found out in direct encounter. If you are inter­est­ed in my work feel warm­ly wel­come to con­tact me for a non-bind­ing first ses­sion to get to know each oth­er.
