Crises are always a call for change – an opportunity to remain still for a few moments and observe yourself and your circumstances, to try out new solutions and find a new way of living.
Fortunately there are ways to re-establish physical, spiritual and mental health or at least to ease the symptoms.
In order to create space for self-development and to develop new skills, it’s necessary to have good intuition for needs and feelings. To get back into the “flow” of a positive life, there’s professional support. It’s important to have a respectful and trusting atmosphere between doctor and patient, so that you can talk about everything that is on your mind.
In my practice for psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy, I provide holistic professional support. If it’s difficult for you to talk in German, we can also do the psychotherapy in English.
Sometimes it’s difficult to take the first step and make contact with a therapist. Give me a call or send me an email; then we can make an appointment for an initial consultation.
As a doctor specialising in psychosomatic medicine, psychotherapy and natural medicine, I have been treating people suffering from psychological symptoms and illnesses in my practice in Schwabing for over 20 years. Even during my studies in human medicine, a holistic, complementary medicine approach was of great importance to me.
I graduated in human medicine from the University of Regensburg and the Technical University in Munich (University Hospital Rechts der Isar). Following my doctoral degree in the neurological department of the University Hospital Rechts der Isar (Professor Struppler), I began my training to become a medical practitioner.
Then followed my training as a doctor for natural medicine (Stadtbergen Clinic and Dr. Vonhof), during which I gained comprehensive knowledge of complementary medicine.
Periods of study in London, Hawaii and San Francisco greatly enriched my medical qualifications.
During that time I became aware of how much our lives and experiences are determined by our mental state. Our subconscious controls us far more then we often assume. Based on this experience, I decided to train as a Specialist in Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy at the Roseneck Clinic under Professor Fichter. After that time I became licensed to offer depth psychology-oriented psychotherapy and behavioural therapy.
I continued my professional development with training in hypnotherapy according to Milton Erickson, NLP, systemic therapy, burnout treatment, couple therapy, sexual therapy, gestalt therapy, Pesso-Boyden therapy, coaching, management training, relaxation techniques, meditation and yoga, attention training, TCM and Ayurveda.
1996-2007: Design and leadership of management training sessions in the Sahara and seminars at Gut Sonnenhausen and in Château d’Orion.
In 1994-96 I completed my coach training, and I now offer individual coaching sessions in my practice.
In 2002 I began my training as an anti-aging doctor at the European Society for Anti-Aging, and I now offer a comprehensive age care programme in my practice, which draws on natural and gentle methods to preserve our health and vitality. After an extensive discussion, I will work with you to create an individual and holistic vitalisation programme.
Continual training allows me to add to my range of treatment options.
I work in accordance with the guideline processes that are accepted by the health insurance providers.
When medically indicated, the following therapy methods are covered by all state and most private health insurance providers. Depth psychology-oriented psychotherapy as individual therapy is the treatment I most often use.
Issues: Crisis situations, current and chronic life conflicts, depression, anxiety, phobias, burnout, self-worth issues, post-traumatic stress disorders, bullying, sleep problems, adaptation disorders following stressful life events such as bereavement or separation, problems at work, coping with illness in the case of severe physical illnesses such as cancer.
Issues: Chronic gastrointestinal conditions, migraines, neurodermatitis, asthma, cardiac anxiety, pain, processing of life-changing illnesses, etc.
Issues: Psychic exhaustion, reduction in productivity and motivation, apathy, feeling of failure, irritability, social withdrawal, passivity, negativity, aggression, insomnia, psychosomatic complaints, concentration difficulties, depression, anxiety, reduced memory ability
For couples whose dreams of happiness together are running out, for whom seemingly unresolvable conflicts have arisen, yet who still have the desire to continue fulfilling their love.
Should you decide to go separate ways, you will also receive support and guidance for a fair and respectful separation.
Issues: Couple conflicts, crises, misunderstandings, disappointments, unfulfilled desire to have children.
This is about an interactive, person-centric support process, covering both work-related and personal topics. The goals, which can be reached in a few sessions, are improved self-management, good leadership qualities and a way of working that generates resources in order to implement solutions in a timely manner.
A tribute to life – holistic prevention treatment
By treating yourself lovingly and with care, you reach the highest level of health, vitality, beauty and well-being. The path there is opened up by this holistic and personally tailored programme, which comprises five basic and natural elements. These are healthy and high-value nutrition (including detox, building-up of the immune system, colon cleansing), appropriate exercise and good breathing, a good lifestyle and environmental conditions, mental strength and spiritual balance, relaxation and stress reduction. In this way you can fully enjoy your life, in harmony with body, mind and soul. Your greatest strength lies in concentrating on yourself.
Today we can use the knowledge and effects of trance states and suggestion very effectively for therapeutic purposes. Topics become more focused and goals are formulated, which, through change processes in a trance state, open up unconscious processes in which new ideas, resources and solution options for a better lifestyle are made available.
Issues: Depression, anxiety, phobias, compulsions, giving up smoking, weight reduction, mental exhaustion, conflicts of every kind, insomnia, pain, trauma, physical illnesses, self-perception and body-perception disorders, blackouts.
In today’s full, fast and global world, stress levels are increasing. Good breaks and regeneration are more important than ever, so that we are equal to what is demanded of us. The goal is to find an appropriate way of dealing with stressful situations while taking account of the individual conditions (stress analysis). Relaxation techniques such as meditation, breathing exercises, mental techniques and autogenenic training promote regeneration and general well-being.

The practice is very central and in a quiet location. It’s in the lively academic district of Schwabing-Maxvorstadt, with a lovely view of the grounds of the Academy of Fine Arts. The listed art nouveau building has been beautifully renovated, retaining the original style. Correspondingly beautiful is the generously-sized, classical therapy room with stucco, large double doors, and trees outside the windows. It offers a very special atmosphere.
