Psychotherapy in Berlin - Specialization: Fears and Anxiety Disorders



Many people suffer from anxiety and too many patients wait too long in order to seek help. This is sad because I have seen so many times the huge impact on the life when people are able to let go of intense fears. Some psychotherapeutic techniques have proven to be really helpful. Therefore this website is about psychotherapy with hypnotherapy and Hypnobalancing™ and how they can help you. Hypnotherapy has been used to help people with a variety of problems.

For more than 15 years I am specialized in the field of anxiety and anxiety disorders. In psychotherapy, hypnotic techniques are effective in speeding the process of therapy. Hypnotherapy is used effectively to facilitate clients’ understanding of themselves and their problems, extinguish unfortunate habits, uncover repressed or forgotten memories, reduce anxiety and fears, and develop a new and more adaptive perception. In health psychology, hypnosis is used to effectively treat irritable bowel syndrome, reduce pain and discomfort. It is also used to treat chronic pain and psychosomatic problems and counter unhealthy habits like smoking.

In more general areas, hypnotherapy has been found to be beneficial for problems such as motivation, procrastination, decision making, personal achievement and development, job performance, buried or repressed memories, relaxation, and stress management.

As already mentioned; I am specialized to help people with fears and anxiety disorders. And yes, this is a very personal matter. Therefore you’ll find more details about me in my profile. The sessions are either in English and German.




Anxiety Disorders


Anxiety disorders are common in clinical practice. They often run a chronic course and have an adverse, though often overlooked, impact on the quality of life. Anxiety disorders often co-occur with other limiting conditions. This further complicates their course and treatment and leads to greater disability. Despite advances in their diagnosis and treatment, the recognition of anxiety disorders is still unsatisfactory, and many sufferers remain untreated. Others are not treated adequately, respond only partially to treatment, or are treatment resistant. It may be an advantage for the patient to learn to live with the fear, but in relation to life quality, it is not enough.

Although there has been much interest in the anxiety disorders as well as intense research activity over the last decades, many issues remain unresolved, particularly in the area of etiology and pathogenesis. Also, the abundance of information and data on the treatment of anxiety disorders often produces conflicting effects, sometimes leaving therapists puzzled as to what treatment approach to use with a particular patient and in a given clinical situation. This website and my work concentrate on psychotherapy with elements of a variety of sources and techniques to help people with an anxiety disorder. It is a solution focused approach that led to a better life for many of my clients.

I hope that the information on my website will help clarify some of the salient issues surrounding the anxiety disorders and help the readers feel better equipped to decide to solve it with the help of an expert.

How Can I Overcome My Fear Of Public Speaking?

Some nervousness or anxiety in certain situations is normal, and public speaking is no exception. Known as performance anxiety, other examples include stage fright, test anxiety, and writer's block, those are common experiences. However, people with severe, debilitating performance anxiety that includes anxiety in other social situations may have social anxiety disorder (social phobia).

Alcohol Causes Anxiety

There is some truth to the belief that alcohol can reduce stress. Alcohol is both a sedative and a depressant that affects the central nervous system.

Panic Attacks and Anxiety

People with panic disorder start to fear the next attack. Psychotherapy in Berlin specialized in fears and anxiety disorders.

Emetophobia and the Struggle of Motherhood

The fear of being sick - called emetophobia - receives little attention compared with other irrational fears, yet it is a more common phobia than most people know. Nobody likes vomit or vomiting - at least most people don't. Emetophobia is the intense fear of vomiting or of being around others who are vomiting. It is a common phobia, even though most people never heard about it. It is an extremely debilitating and disabling condition. People with emetophobia are dominated by irrational thoughts and actions. Emetophobia can frequently lead to other disorders, such as agoraphobia, panic attacks, anxiety, and depression. In the worst cases, sufferers can become afraid of eating, which sometimes leads to an incorrect diagnosis of anorexia. Emetophobes go to great lengths to avoid being sick. Some sufferers are actually able physically to prevent themselves from ever vomiting by fighting feelings of nausea until they subside.

What Is Agoraphobia?

The word agoraphobia originates from the ancient Greek word "agora," referring to a place of assembly or marketplace. Agoraphobia is defined as anxiety about being in particular places or situations where escape might be difficult or help might not be available, should a panic attack or panic-like symptoms arise. Commonly feared situations include using public transportation, going to theaters, being away from home, and being in crowds. Agoraphobia leads to avoidance of these situations, or great distress when in these situations if they cannot be avoided. Most people develop agoraphobia after having had one or more panic attacks, causing them to fear further attacks and avoid the situation in which the attack occurred.

Smoking Cessation: Becoming Smoke Free Is A Radical Lifestyle Change

Becoming smoke-free is a radical lifestyle change. I support those who are willing to become smoke-free since 1998. Assisting smokers in successfully making that change is a highly rewarding endeavor for me providing smoking cessation interventions with Hypnobalancing. It is rewarding to witness the transformation clients go through as they gradually extract themselves from the stranglehold nicotine has on their daily routines and embrace the fresh outlook on their lives that lies ahead on the smoke-free path. It is also gratifying to know that for each smoker who is able to stay smoke-free, there are others in that person’s life who are happy and relieved to see their loved one choose health over the debilitating habit. Of course, the benefits of becoming smoke-free go beyond the individuals seeking treatment. Smoking cessation plays a key role in improving public health.

Is Social anxiety (Social phobia) Simply Shyness?

Social anxiety (social phobia) is in its mildest form simply shyness, but when it gets more disabling it becomes what we call a social phobia. It can be generalized, which means that we get extremely anxious in many situations where there might be people around, or it can be specific when it only applies to a certain situation like public speaking or eating out.

Problem or Solution Focused Thinking

Everyone approaches a problem in a different way. Some focus on the problem or the reason why a problem emerged. Others prefer to think about possible solutions that help them to solve a problem. Approaching a difficult situation problem-oriented might be helpful if we attempt to avoid similar problems or mistakes in the future. Unfortunately, when it comes to solving the problem with the focus on what doesn't work we sometimes waste large amounts of our precious time.

Anxiety and Expectations

High expectations of yourself and others can keep you anxious by telling you that you are inadequate, that things are out of control, and that you cannot handle them. This will start the spin cycle of anxiety. You have more and more negative self-talk. This additionally reduces your confidence and gives you more evidence that you can't cope with challenges.

Sources of Anxiety

Anxiety results from many factors and they can all interact. There is a biopsychosocial theory of anxiety’s origins; anxiety has sources in our biology, our psychological strategies for coping with stress, and life events, including our most important human relationships.

Let Life Happen to You

Worries About Worry

Especially people with a generalized anxiety disorder worry about worry. They get into a conflictual relationship with their own thoughts. People with a generalized anxiety disorder want to make very sure that their bad thoughts will never become reality. They want to eliminate all doubt. But since it's impossible to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that something could never happen, this opens the door to worry without end.

Stress Management & Life Balance Therapy

People differ on the amount of stress that they can cope with and many would argue that a small amount of stress is needed to enable you to function in a competitive workplace. However, in many cases factors, other than your work, may contribute to stress in a bigger way, e.g., family turmoil, divorce, bereavement, and financial troubles are amongst the main causes of stress.
