What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy offers a possibility for relieving conversations in a non-judgemental environment.

 

It has the goal to diminish or get rid of symptoms that have already bothered you for a long time or  might start to bother you. My aim is to establish a warm atmosphere which allows a process of growth. 

 

Psychotherapy, by law, is confidential. This means that you, as a client have a safe space to talk and reflect.

Individual Psychology

Individual Psychology is an analytic oriented method, which was founded by Alfred Adler around 1912. 

In his early concepts, Adler leaned towards Freudian Psychoanalysis but parted from Freud's views later on. Adler established his own method, focusing on the three goals in life: Love, Work and Community. He stated that the meaning of life can be found, if we are successful in those three areas. 

 

 

Famous concepts of his modality are for example the "Minority Complex", "biased apperception" (tendenziöse Apperzeption) or his dream analysis. What this modality has in common with Freudian Psychoanalysis is that we believe in an unconscious and therefore also interpret dreams or behaviour.
