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.”
Passion for Inner Exploration
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.
