Impotence or erectile dysfunction means not being able to get or maintain a good enough erection to have fulfilling intercourse. Temporary impotence is very common indeed, particularly in younger men, and especially when they are either anxious or have drunk too much alcohol.
Many body systems are involved in male sexual arousal; brain, nervous system, blood vessels, muscles, hormones, and emotions are all key to proper function. A problem in one part of the body can cause erectile dysfunction.
Many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, are sometimes first diagnosed after a man discusses his symptoms of erectile dysfunction with his medical doctor.
Sometimes there are no physical reasons for an erectile dysfunction. Occasional impotence is common and often caused by stress or performance anxiety, however, if the problem persists, professional help may be required. And when the physician can’t find a physical reason psychotherapy can help because often erectile dysfunction is a psychological issue.
Hypnotherapy may also be beneficial for individuals who want to release negative or limiting beliefs by identifying the triggers that started them. Learning how to manage and deal with them may then be possible. Hypnoanalysis, therefore, may help to identify the root cause of the issue and deal with it.
If you’re having erection problems, bear these points in mind:
- The most common cause of temporary impotence is just anxiety and not some serious disease!
- Impotence can be helped by medication, sex counseling, mechanical aids, or – very occasionally – surgical treatment.
- Impotence may be a symptom of another, as yet undiagnosed, disease requiring treatment; the most common of these is diabetes.
An erection happens when blood is pumped into your penis – and stays there – making it stiff and hard. All sorts of things may affect this complex process. Besides physiological causes there are the following psychological causes:
- Anxiousness about whether you can perform will almost certainly make it impossible to get an erection.
- Problems in a relationship may affect potency.
- Impotence may be caused by depression.
- Bereavement: recent loss of a loved one is notorious for causing impotence.
- Hang-ups – for instance, guilt about sex.
- Unresolved gay feelings
- Having an in your mind unattractive partner.
- Porn-induced erectile dysfunction
There are some health and psychological conditions that can cause or contribute to erectile dysfunction.
These physical causes include:
- partially- or fully-blocked blood vessels
- nerve damage
- high cholesterol
- high blood pressure
- heart disease
- low testosterone
- metabolic syndrome
- prostate cancer or enlarged prostate
- damage to the pelvic area
And there are lifestyle issues that can contribute to erectile dysfunction:
- consumption of porn
- prescription medications
- illicit drugs
- tobacco use
- excessive alcohol consumption
- sedentary lifestyle
- stress and anxiety
- not enough sleep
Anxiety, stress and erectile dysfunction are closely connected. Because men facing increased stress or anxiety may also have increased blood pressure and cholesterol. Those conditions increase a man’s risk for erectile dysfunction.
Stress is the physical response of the body to life’s issues. Stress and anxiety can cause harm to your body and the erectile disfunction is just one of the many ways the damage manifests itself. It can lead to a vicious cycle because erectile dysfunction itself can cause a man further stress and anxiety, which can cause additional erectile dysfunction issues and so on.
Self-hypnosis has helped many patients with non-medical male impotence. Many male usually report very quickly a noticeable improvement. Pondering, fears, mental and physical tension can be additionally reduced by self-hypnosis. Therefore, I teach my patients self-hypnosis to supplement the hypnosis sessions.
After positive trance experiences have been made with my support, self-hypnosis can be learned very quickly. This helps them to progress self-determined outside the therapy. It accelerates the process, deepens and consolidates the achievements. This also promotes the independence of the clients. A good therapist will be superfluous as soon as possible. Self-hypnosis is an excellent self-help method that can be used beyond the actual topic.
Hypnotherapy is used with non-medical impotence. Non-medical impotence is the case when men experience arousal states during sleep.
Old books recommend an easy way to tell, but not a replacement for medical examination is to put a band made from postage stamps around your penis before you go to bed. If the band is broken in the morning, you are more than likely having normal erections during sleep.
Sexual problems such as these are related to the subconscious, and hypnotherapy helps in taking away the layers which hide the real reason. The real reason is not that your sexual prime is going downhill. The problem is that your head is governing the actions of the other, and what results is a wilting experience.
Hypnotherapy helps you confront the negative emotions, and teaches you to get over it. It helps you gain confidence and takes the pressure out of the performance. It will help you get back your self-confidence and masculinity whilst be enabling you to enjoy pleasing your partner and yourself.
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?

Here are some organizational details. Please read them before the appointment reservation. People often ask, "How much does hypnotherapy cost?" What is meant by this are the presumed total costs, which result from the fee and the duration of the psychotherapy with hypnotherapy.
Fee for psychotherapy
The fee per session hour of psychotherapy (60 minutes) for appointments from Monday to Thursday from 10:00 to 18:00:
- A. Sessions by telephone or online with video support 169,- Euro
- B. Sessions in my premises 199,- Euro.
- C. For options A. and B. plus short-term appointment changes* once up to 24 hours before, add to the hourly fee 35, - Euro.
The fees for psychotherapy are exempt from VAT according to § 4 No. 14 a) UStG.
The first session usually lasts 90 minutes. Outside the mentioned business hours (Monday and Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.) I add a 35 % surcharge. The minimum duration of a session is 60 minutes, billing beyond that in 30-minute units. The minimum duration of a session is 60 minutes, billing beyond that in 30-minute units.
The fees do not include travel, accommodation, and allowance costs, which will be charged to the client. For traveling on my behalf: The costs for the journey will be charged according to time and effort. Within Berlin, at least an hourly fee is charged. Relevant is the individual agreement.
Postponement of meetings: For hourly fees A. and B. sessions that last up to 120 minutes can be once rescheduled up to 72 hours in advance (only weekdays count Monday till Friday, no holidays), longer sessions, or more than 120 minutes within 7 days at least 14 days in advance. Otherwise, they will be charged in full.
You can't come to my practice? Switch to a session with video or use your telephone.
Method of payment: The fee must always be paid in full by bank transfer 7 days before the session. I will send you details by mail so that you are well-informed.
Right of rescission: If registration by consumers for an event is made by telephone, letter, e-mail, or online form, the provisions of the Distance Selling Act shall apply. If the intended start of the event at the time of registration is within the withdrawal period according to the Fernabsatzgesetz (Distance Selling Act), the registration is considered a request to start the service within the withdrawal period. You have the right to revoke a service order/date without giving reasons. This is possible within 14 days of the order by telephone and in writing.
Cost coverage by health insurance companies and other insurers
Usually, the fee is not paid by national health insurance companies. Please contact your insurance company to find out about their policy details. Please discuss this with your insurer in advance. You will receive an invoice from me with classification according to ICD-10. Should applications etc. be necessary, we can do this together during the meetings.
The first therapy session lasts 90 minutes, subsequent sessions can also be 60 minutes long. The number of sessions required is as varied as the personalities and situations of the clients. For anxiety disorders, I usually see clients for 3 to 8 sessions. Frequently, this question can be estimated by the clients themselves after the second session. I will then also give you an estimation based on previous experience.

There are only a few practice hours available, and they want to be used well. The fee for individual session hours is therefore always to be paid in full by bank transfer, with payment received at least 7 days before the session.
Why at least 7 days in advance? I would like to do it differently, but this is the best practice. Appointments that have not been confirmed with payment received seven days in advance are noticeably more likely to be canceled. And the repeated callbacks take up a lot of time. Because of this, I'm currently faced with the decision of whether and how to either significantly adjust fees to absorb this or to consistently organize in a way that is fair to all parties. Because of this, I am also offering options in terms of shifting appointments with the fees.
There is a maximum of 20 hours a week available for psychotherapy, and any canceled appointment means patients are unable to benefit from psychotherapy help. I understand that it would be more convenient for you otherwise, but this solution is the fairest for all involved.
You can use real-time bank transfer (costs 25 Ct. at Sparkasse Berlin, for example) for time-sensitive appointments, and the transfer takes a few minutes, or we can make an appointment with appropriate advance preparation. If this is not an option for you, please let me know immediately so that I can assign your appointment. Otherwise, I appreciate your understanding and look forward to intensive cooperation.
You are not in Berlin or do not want or cannot come to the practice for other reasons? Then it is worth reading the following information about the options:
a. Travel to Berlin
For clients traveling to Berlin, there is the possibility, if booked in advance, to hold 2 sessions on the same day. It should be discussed in advance by telephone whether this is a recommendable option, as it requires appropriate prerequisites. Any sources of additional pressure should be avoided in the interest of the therapeutic success.
b. Online sessions
At times a personal meeting is not possible. In such cases, a telephone session or a session with video support via the Internet is an alternative or supplement. I have been using this setting for many years, and many clients have achieved excellent results with it. These experiences make it easy to achieve very intensive sessions in this way as well. You are more flexible and can also use my support very promptly. There are currently reduced fees for such sessions.
You are also on the safe side regarding the coronavirus. By the way, this is also an option if you should be unexpectedly unable to attend a session personally.
