As a Psychology Psychologist and Approbierte Psychological Psychotherapist I am since 1999 in Münster established in private practice. At the same time, since 1995 I have been working for 17 years (until 3/2012) in the "Beratungsstelle Zartbitter Münster eV", a counseling service for victims of sexualised violence. My current focus is above all in the field of modern hypnosis, which I individually use in coaching and in the treatment of mental illness.
After having learned and practiced various additional psychological training courses (behavioral, conversation and body therapy as well as couple therapy), I have now put hypnosis at the center of my advisory and therapeutic work. It offers - like no other process - a colorful bouquet of application possibilities for almost all areas of life in a mixture of economic effectiveness and individually tailored processes. It is equally suitable for the solution of a limited problem or achievement of a set goal as well as for the successful treatment of diseases. I combine modern hypnotherapy with elements of indigenous shamanic traditions and music.
