Sessions via telephone and Internet
Online sessions are much more than a substitute for face-to-face meetings, they have their characteristics and special potentials. That is why I have also been using online sessions with video support for many years. They are just as effective as face-to-face meetings.
Advantages compared to sessions in the office
A pleasant journey to and from the session can be very enriching to tune in and reflect. But time is not always available for this. With online sessions you save this effort, you can tune in suitably and make yourself comfortable at the place of your choice. Afterward, you can let the session resonate in the way that is best for you.
The solution and recommendations
Online sessions can be very intensive and do not require a master’s degree in computer science. Since I have been conducting telephone sessions and online sessions for many years, I have developed processes to make it as comfortable and effective for you as possible. The video and especially the audio quality is remarkable with an adequate bandwidth.
It does not get more personal than this
I recommend the use of comfortable headphones because then my voice is even closer to you. For the practical part, provide yourself with a sheltered place to lie down and relax with a soft flat pillow under your head and, if necessary, another one under your knees.
You can use a desktop computer or notebook, such as a Windows computer or a Mac for the session, a tablet PC, or an iPad. During the session, you usually keep your eyes closed anyway, so a smartphone is also great for this. For this part of the session, the camera is best pointed so that I can easily see your breathing and reactions on the neck and face. This is best achieved with the camera position slightly elevated and from the side.
The session is conducted through a provider that complies with the requirements of the Data Protection Regulation. A current version of the Chrome or Firefox browsers is recommended for this. On iOS devices, Safari is recommended. The installation of additional software is not required.
You will receive the link to the virtual meeting room at the latest after receipt of the fee. You will also receive a set of recommendations for preparation before the first session. We will discuss everything else during the first online session. This is how we ensure an online session that moves you forward.

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.
