Psychotherapists usually maintain a professional distance and remain in the background as a person. The focus of any consultation or therapy must be always the client and his/her concerns. The job of the therapist is to listen, possibly carefully guide, but never to contribute on a personal level. Nevertheless, it is important for the client to find the right “match”. Not every therapist is right for every client. That’s why I offer a cost-effective 75-minute initial consultation, in which you can address any concerns or questions and get a personal impression. In addition, below you will find some information about me as a therapist, focus of practice and therapy methods, hoping it will help you with prescreening. I’ll be happy to answer short questions during my telephone hours or by email. For a personal meeting and clarification of more complex questions, I recommend the 75-minute initial consultation.
“Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie” are subject to the legal requirements regarding confidential medical communication and bound to professional secrecy. Moreover, (to me) professional confidentiality is a prerequisite for a trusting relationship and of utmost importance, in terms of work ethic and for a meaningful and open exchange between client and therapist.
