Hypnotherapy is a powerful way for clients to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their problems, get rid of unwanted habits, uncover repressed or forgotten memories, reduce anxiety and fears, and develop a new and more flexible perception. In health psychology, hypnosis is used to successfully 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 is beneficial for problems such as motivation, procrastination, decision-making, personal achievement and development, job performance, buried or repressed memories, relaxation, and stress management.

I live my life in widening circles,
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one,
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?
Rainer Maria Rilke
Anxiety disorders are common in my clinical practice. They often run a chronic course and have a negative impact on the quality of life. Anxiety disorders often co-occur with other limiting conditions. This complicates their course and treatment. 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 salient issues related to anxiety disorders and help the readers feel better equipped to decide to solve it with the help of an expert.
How to decide to ask for help?
Are you thinking about whether you need professional help to recover? You may feel that you should be able to handle things on your own, or that talking to someone means you are not a strong person. You might be worried that talking about your issue during treatment could make your symptoms worse. It is important to get all those obstacles out of the way.
When asking for help
It is good to know that it is important to help yourself. It’s also important to know when you need to reach out for some help. Therapy can be a good opportunity to learn both aspects of emotional strength, autonomy and reliance on those you trust.
An experienced therapist will let you choose the pace of your therapy and won't force you to discuss things you're not ready for. Emotional strength involves learning on your own and knowing how and when support is helpful.
How do the symptoms influence your life?
One of the best ways to figure out if assistance is good for you is to consider how much the symptoms you are experiencing interfere with your daily life. Do you have limitations in your personal life, at work? Are you able to focus? Is it easy for you to build and maintain fulfilling relationships with people? Do you enjoy your life? Is there a feeling in you that your life could be more fulfilling?
Who can assist you?
Are you considering getting my assistance? The easiest way for you to find out is if you know someone I've been able to help. Then you will know firsthand what to expect. If that is not the case, you will find on this website some information that will make it easier for you to get an impression of me. Trust is important, and that's why I aim for transparency.
For about two decades, I am specialized in the field of fears and anxiety disorders. I spend about 20 hours a week helping people to free themselves from their limitations and thereby gain a better quality of life. If you want to know how it all started and what you should know about me, please read my profile. And yes, therapy is a very personal matter: Because it is a very intensive collaboration, I reveal some details about myself. So you can get a first impression of me. Trust is important and that is why I focus on transparency.
The sessions are conducted either in German or English.
Be sure to read the following notice
Before contacting me, please read the detailed information on fees, booking, contraindications of hypnotherapy, and the answers to other common questions (FAQ). I would be happy to discuss your specific needs with you in a free preliminary telephone consultation.
These pages are intended to provide information to those interested in psychotherapy with hypnotherapy. They are neither intended to replace psychotherapy nor a personal consultation, examination, or diagnosis by a licensed physician. I am not a medical doctor. I am specialized to help people with fears and anxiety disorders. The profession of a hypnotherapist (official permission to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from the practice of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medications prescribed. A medical or psychiatric intervention, if necessary, is not to be replaced by hypnotherapeutic treatment under any circumstances.
If you have questions about psychotherapy with hypnosis, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to inform you.
Just ask me personally.
Answers to frequently asked questions can already be found on the homepage, such as the fees. There are also numerous articles and details about me (profile) helping you to get an impression of me. This will also make it easier for you to decide whether I am the right therapist for you and your issue.

When appropriate, I will teach you self-hypnosis to complement the hypnosis sessions. Self-hypnosis is a tool to control unconscious processes and thus mental states by yourself.
After you enjoyed positive trance experiences with my support, you can learn self-hypnosis very quickly. This helps you to progress self-determined. It accelerates the process, deepens, and consolidates what has been achieved in the therapy sessions. Your autonomy is thus fostered. A good therapist makes himself superfluous as soon as possible. Self-hypnosis is an excellent method of self-help that can be used beyond the actual issue.
Am I the right therapist for you and your topic?
You want to be sure to make a good decision when choosing a therapist that is right for you and your topic? Then I will make it easy for you and introduce myself.
