Therapy in English
Starting a psychotherapy is an important and often not easily reached decision in life. Our emotional experience is very closely related to our language yet it is often difficult to express personal thoughts, feelings, problems and fears in words - and even more so in a foreign language. Therefore, it is especially important in psychotherapy to be able to communicate in a language in which one feels at home, preferably the mother tongue.
While studying psychology, I had the opportunity to spend time at different universities in the USA. Though English is not my mother tongue I have experience in conducting therapy with English speaking clients.
I have specialized in the treatment of:
- depression of the elderly
- bipolar disorders
- anxiety disorders (panic disorder, agoraphobie, social phobia, specific phobia, generalized anxiety disorder)
The method of treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy.Payment
Our fees are based on the GOP (Gebührenordnung für Psychotherapeuten). The fees are usually covered by most of the private health insurances ("private Krankenversicherung") if there is an indication for psychotherapy. Unfortunately public health insurance ("gesetzliche Krankenversichrung") doesn't cover our fees, as we are a private practice. In any case you should check with your health insurance wether the costs of psychotherapy in private practice will be covered. If you chose to pay for yourself, you needn't worry about any formalities.How to get started:
For a first personal appointment, call me in the practice. During this first session I will get an understanding of your personal situation and your specific problems und together we will decide how to best go on from there. If I cannot pick up the phone at the moment, because I happen to be in a therapeutic session, please leave a message on my answering machine. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
