Traveling to Berlin


How do you know if it is a good idea to come to Berlin?

Travel to Berlin for psychotherapy



Courage is at the beginning of action, happiness at the end.



Here are some thoughts for your decision if and how it is a good idea for you to come to Berlin for your therapy.




1. Are you considering coming to Berlin for your psychotherapy?


Especially for more specialized issues that fewer therapists are familiar with, it may be beneficial to travel some distance.




2. What are the options?


Depending on the topic, situation and personality, there are basic decisions to be made in advance when considering traveling to Berlin for psychotherapy. Generally, I have made good experience with intensive work within a short period of time. However, there are some specifics to consider here.




3. Decisions regarding the effort

Traveling means effort. Having a few sessions within a short period of time often requires more hours compared to patients who come for therapy at longer intervals. Most clients reserve more hours to give themselves adequate time and because of the expense of travel. How many hours are reserved is decided by the client.




4. Avoid additional stress


Especially clients who are under a lot of pressure and have very high expectations often need additional time to relieve this pressure until the actual therapy begins.It is the therapist’s challenge to help them get into a good state of mind, as additional pressure makes the process more difficult. This is especially true for clients who have been in psychotherapy for a very long time and now hope to solve everything at once in a very short time. An appropriate positive attitude of expectation fosters the therapy. This is another reason why I provide such detailed information on the homepage so that you can make your decision on a realistic basis.




5. Everyone reacts differently


No serious therapist can predict the duration of psychotherapy beforehand. What is possible, however, are sometimes cautious mentions of previous experiences, as far as these can be transferred. As gratifying as recommendations from clients are who have had good experiences within a short period of time; everyone reacts differently to psychotherapy.




6. I will invest the last of my money in the therapy.


Motivation is important, too much pressure to succeed is not. If you have to sell your last possessions for the trip to Berlin, and then worry all the time about how things will go afterward, you are not doing yourself any favors. With the worrying focus on whether it can be done within the time frame available, it becomes difficult to focus on beneficial outcomes.

I once had a client who traveled to every therapy session and explained in detail that she had to sell her car to get there. This caused her a lot of stress and she was so completely blocked. So we could not begin with the therapy on her issue. We first had to establish her mental state for it. Then there was less time for the actual therapy in the beginning. As a result, we needed some additional sessions.




7. Black and white, now or never!


If you wait all the time during a visit to Berlin for a complete solution to happen abruptly, you tend to tense up. Take this into account, because otherwise, it makes therapeutic cooperation more difficult. It helps to give yourself the time you need and, in case of doubt, to reserve fewer hours in order to come back to Berlin.



8. Sightseeing


I recommend taking a hotel in the immediate area so that you can retreat there during pauses if necessary. If you want to explore the city, you preferably do this after the therapy. The time between sessions is also very important. Those who stay with friends or relatives often do not have the necessary time to rest.

These pages are intended to provide information for those interested in psychotherapy using hypnotherapy. It is not intended to replace psychotherapy or personal consultation, examination or diagnosis by a licensed medical practitioner. I am not a medical doctor. I specialize in helping people with anxiety and anxiety disorders. The profession of a hypnotherapist (official license to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from that of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medication prescribed. Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric intervention where this is required.

If you have any questions about psychotherapy with hypnosis, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to inform you.
