Psychotherapy in English
Having lived in the UK for many years, I also offer psychotherapy in English.
My understanding of psychotherapy
As a psychodynamic psychotherapist, it is very important for me to build a trusting relationship with my patients. I create a safe atmosphere in which you can open up and share your innermost thoughts and feelings. I believe that a positive therapeutic relationship is essential for successful therapy.
I do not see my patients as symptom carriers, but as individuals with unique life stories and deep conflicts that are often hidden in the unconscious. I place particular emphasis on the emotional aspects, as I am convinced that our emotions are closely connected to our thoughts and actions. I help my clients to understand and accept their emotions so that they can resolve their inner conflicts and overcome mental blocks.
My invitation to you is to come as yourself, with no preconceived notions or criticisms, and together we can work towards understanding the situation and identifying the root of any difficulties.
Before starting psychotherapy with me, it is important that we get to know each other in an initial session. Following this meeting, additional sessions, referred to as probatory sessions, will take place. These serve several purposes, such as determining if psychotherapy is suitable for you and providing you with the opportunity to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship with me.
For Private Health Insurance
Usually, the first session and the following five sessions (also known as trial sessions) will be covered by your insurance. If you have a mental health diagnosis, health insurance typically covers the cost of psychotherapy. It is important that you check with your private health insurance at the beginning of therapy to see if and to what extent psychotherapy is covered.
For Public Health Insurance
Unfortunately, I am not able to directly bill public health insurance in my private practice. However, I am happy to discuss with you whether we can conduct treatment through the reimbursement procedure. To receive coverage in my practice, you must prove that you have been unable to obtain an available treatment slot with a licensed practitioner. Please contact your health insurance to find out if and how reimbursement is possible.
For Self-Paying Patients
It is, of course, also possible to pay for psychotherapy yourself. There may be various reasons for doing so. The fees for treatment are based on the GOP.Feel free to contact me by phone or email to clarify any questions you may have regarding formalities.
