Dear clients, welcome to my website
Here you can find more information about my range of services as a psychologist and coach.
I work with clients in a face-to-face setting in private practice in Föhr (North Frisian island in Germany) or anywhere in the world via online video meetings. You can find out more about my professional qualifications on the about me page.
Psychological counseling is a meeting between a client and a psychologist to solve a specific problem or to achieve a certain goal.
Common problems include chronic stress, conflicts in the workplace, and profound life changes such as divorce. Psychological counseling can also help when it comes to making an important life decision in a reflective way. In contrast to psychotherapy, counseling does not treat mental disorders.
Psychological counseling can be provided through a face-to-face meeting, secure video conference, phone call, or email correspondence.
Couples therapy and marriage counseling are offered for people with relationship problems. They are indicated, for example, if the couple repeatedly gets into serious arguments and has not yet found good solutions.
The main goal is to give the couple the opportunity to process their conflicts and achieve a higher level of relationship satisfaction. Ideally, the couple can grow with the challenges and develop a deeper emotional relationship with more flexibility, openness, and closeness.
As a rule, joint meetings take place, which is occasionally accompanied by one-on-one sessions.
A crisis is a painful emotional state that a person can fall into when faced with events or circumstances that they cannot currently cope with psychologically.
A crisis can have various causes, such as:
- Unforeseen death of a loved one
- Natural disasters, accidents and near misses
- House fire, burglary, robbery
- Diagnosis of serious illness
- Violence, stalking, rape, attempted murder or threats
- Partner infidelity, separation, divorce
- Conflicts, bullying, bossing, dismissal
Psychosocial crises are often accompanied by despair and helplessness, fear, loss of control or powerlessness.
Crisis intervention is an intensive short-term treatment (usually 3-5 sessions) carried out by a psychologist to reduce acute psychological stress.
How does online counselling work?
