Short answers to FAQs:
What are the costs/ forms of payment?
Costs for psychotherapy are usually covered by health insurances. If you have a private insurance you have to check your contract. If you have a german "Gesetzliche Krankenkasse" unfortunately I can only use the "Kostenerstattungsverfahren", which is not supported by all insurances and needs extra application. Feel free to ask me about it.
For psychological counseling and couples therapy you have to pay yourself. For more details go to the bottom of the page.
When do I go for psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy means the treatment of psychological and psychosomatic problems on the basis of methods that have been proved to help significantly by research. Here is a list of common symptoms that can be treated by psychotherapy: specific and general anxiety, fear, panic, depression, sleeping disorders, post traumatic stress, low self esteem, low stress tolerance, burn-out, obsession, continuing problems with relationsships.
What is my approach to psychotherapy?
The first step in Psychotherapy is to understand where and when symptoms occur and also when they do not occur. From the beginning I tend to search for each persons strenghs because they can be helpful in the process of finding solutions for the problems. My postgraduate training has been in cognitive behavior therapy including schematherapy (Young, Grawe). During the therapy sessions the personal belief systems and schema modes are explored and modified. The dysfunctional modes are reduced and new modes are generated. This usually needs practice, so one method of therapy is the do „homework“, so that the new understanding will be established in your daily life. When it seems useful I like to integrate methods such as work with the inner child, time-line, work with empty chair, energy psychology such as EFT/ Tapping.
What is psychological counseling?
Psychological counseling concerns the "little problems", that each one knows, such as not getting used to the new job or not getting over the end of a relationship. People usually talk to friends, read books or find help in the internet. But sometimes it is hard to initiate change or to find an adequate solution. Often the best solution is to seek professional help to get a new view and approaches on the situation.
People regularly come to me for counseling because of relationship problems, but where the partner is not willing to get professional help. It usually still makes sense to come for counseling, because if you understand yourself and the relationsship better it will be easier for you to decide what you can expect and how you want to approach your partner.
What is couples therapy/ marriage counseling?
Couples therapy and marriage counseling means that both of you come to the treatment sessions together. Couples usually come when they have big problems, frequent fights or lack of communication. In the first session I will ask how your relationship started and developped over time. Then we will come to the reason why you seek professional help. I will ask each of you, what your view on the relationship and the problems are. When I have a first impression I will let you know in which way I would work with you in continuing sessions. This could be: training of communication, training of conflict skills, time-line-work and further exploration. You will get "homework", so you transfer the knowledge to your daily life. 3- 5 sessions sometimes already help to see improvement, some couples need up to 12 session, depending on your personal situation.
What are the costs in detail?
Costs for couples therapy and counseling are not covered by insurances (see below for costs in detail).
Costs for psychotherapy are usually covered by private and public health insurances, if you have a german insurance.
If you have a private insurance you should check your insurance policy. Some insurances ask you to fill out an application for psychotherapy, so you should have it sent to you. If they cover psychotherapy the next steps should be easy.
If you have public health insurance (Gesetzliche Krankenkasse) we have to contact your insurance to ask if they support the „Kostenerstattungsverfahren“. This „Kostenerstattungsverfahren“ needs an extra application. I can send you more information about it. Unfortuately I cannot offer you to use the "Chipkarte", which is the most convenient way, because I do not have my own "Abrechnungsnummer".
