While taking into account the latest modern medicine developments, I mainly use methods and exercises stemming from psychodynamic psychotherapy, rational-emotive cognitive behavior therapy, and narrative therapy.
For example, therapy is about personality disorders, fears, depression, phobias, compulsions, panic disorders, and sexuality. I want to give space to develop human qualities such as compassion, joy, and happiness.
The starting point for the respective work and insights will be the “here and now” because current problems are determined by current thinking.
However, life history is also worked upon to understand better how you came to the point where our work started. I am assuming that every person is different from other people and is endowed with different strengths and abilities.
On top of scientifically researched psychotherapy methods, which are proven to help with certain problems, every person also has their own way of pursuing their happiness and using their – often unconscious – resources. I want to support you to build courage, to strengthen confidence in the abilities of your own senses, body, emotions, and thoughts. A benevolent therapeutic contact on a par with my patients or clients is essential to me.
The focus is on improving the way you deal with yourself and your fellow human beings. It is important to me to offer an inner space in therapy in which you will be held safely and can allow yourself to be what you really are.
Psychology Halensee is a private practice. But what does it exactly mean?
As a “private doctor”, I don’t see myself as a doctor who works exclusively for a small, exclusive group of private patients. I am there for everyone who is looking for my help without restriction!
Why have I waived a contract with the statutory health insurance?
Medicine, to which the statutory health insurance funds contract doctors, unfortunately, is bound by the principles of “economic, sufficient, necessary and appropriate care”. As a doctor, however, I would like to offer you adequate and appropriate care and excellent therapy that is individually tailored to your needs!
The statutory health insurances do not pay attention to a detailed discussion with patients or individual advice. The statutory health insurance aims to provide basic care that can rarely provide a sufficient framework for difficult disease courses. This does not correspond to my view of modern medicine, in which the patient as an individual is at the center. I take time for you, I listen carefully and look carefully! Without being tied to statutory health insurance, many bureaucracies and high administrative costs are eliminated. I can take this time to treat my patients! Besides, the waiting times for an appointment are generally shorter for you.
A statutory health insurance doctor receives a budget from the health insurance that he has to adhere to. As a private doctor, I work independently and without paying attention to the statutory health insurance companies’ quota restrictions or requirements. In the treatment, your individual needs are specially taken into account, and we will discuss the goal of the treatment and the way to get there. So I am only indebted to you and the state of medical science.
That’s why I left the till system. That’s why I’m a private doctor.
