Diplom-Psychologin und Psychologische Psychotherapeutin
Since 2010, I have been working exclusively as a psychotherapist and I have also been very enthusiastic in private cardiology. My main focus is the treatment of depressive disorders as well as anxiety disorders, burnout and psychosomatic complaints.
Before my psychological studies I worked as, among other things, a nurse at an internal intensive care unit. After completing my degree as a graduate psychologist as well as my subsequent qualification as an adult behavioral therapist, I was entrusted with building the psychological unit of a cardiac rehabilitation department. I am continuing to develop myself and my education, for example, I certified as a relaxation trainer PMR according to Jacobson (2009), and in hypnotherapy according to M. Erickson, as well as Core Evolution with Dr. Siegmar Gerken and in Focusing. Mind-Body medicine inspires me very much.
Since 2008 I have been an approved behavioral therapist for adults and am registered in the medical register of the Hamburg Medical Association. I integrate appropriate and inspiring methods from different, scientifically recognized therapeutic directions into my work.
Mindfulness and acceptance
It is now also scientifically acknowledged that exercising an attentive and accepting basic attitude has various positive effects and promotes good health. To this point, MBSR (J. Kabat-Zinn) and also focusing are both mentioned as examples. At Susanne Kersig, I learned the main principles of focusing and the implementation of mindful body dynamics (2015/2016).
Science-based, Modern Hypnotherapy
In the years 2011 to 2012, I completed the entire basic course of further education in “Erickson’s Approaches to Hypnosis and Psychotherapy” at the Milton Erickson Institute in Hamburg, followed by various construction seminars. I can identify with the consistent resource orientation and the underlying human image of this therapy approach.
Far Eastern Knowledge
In the near future, I plan to let my fascination with Far Eastern knowledge, like Qi Gong, meditation, Buddhist psychology, flow into my work
