Psychotherapy can help if a child or young person suffers from persistent symptoms that have psychological causes. Mental disorders show up through mental or physical symptoms or in interpersonal problems. They are something everyday and can happen to anyone. If your child or you should be affected, do not hesitate to contact us without obligation.
Please contact me by phone, email or using the contact form on this website. I will answer you as soon as possible, at the latest within five working days, in order to arrange an appointment with you for an initial consultation.
Initial discussion and probatory:
We have up to 6 sessions available for this. Together we will prepare a diagnostic clarification of the occasion for your presentation and clarify questions about a possible treatment, the framework conditions and options for reimbursement. At the same time, the complaints will be physically clarified by a general practitioner or specialist. Ultimately, you decide whether psychotherapeutic treatment should be initiated according to an individual treatment plan. Since psychotherapy is a medical measure that requires approval, this must be applied for from your health insurance company to cover the costs and usually requires a review by an expert. Self-payers sign a therapy contract with me.
The following disorders can be treated with behavioral therapy:
ADHD / ADS
Post-traumatic stress disorder
Fear of school
Short-term therapy lasts 25 hours, long-term therapy 45-60 hours, with one treatment hour lasting 50 minutes. If necessary, a therapy extension can be requested. As a rule, weekly meetings take place on a fixed date. Regular discussions with parents can also take place. On request and with your written consent, I will cooperate with other institutions (pediatrician / family doctor, day care center, school, after-school care center, etc.). Since this is an order practice with fixed start and end times, please come on time. A cancellation fee will be charged for appointment cancellations that are not made at least 24 hours before the start of the meeting.
Please bring the following documents with you to the initial interview:
possibly yellow examination booklet
possibly previous school reports
any existing doctor's letters
Any existing reports (psychologists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, clinics, etc.)
Behavioral therapy is approved by the health insurance companies as a scientifically proven guideline procedure alongside analytical psychotherapy and psychotherapy based on depth psychology. Behavioral therapy assumes that behaviors can be learned and changed again if necessary. It is transparent and action-oriented.
Together we try to solve current problems step by step based on existing strengths. As a licensed (ie with state treatment permit) child and adolescent psychotherapist, I am obliged to observe medical confidentiality. Data protection and anonymity are guaranteed.
Psychotherapy starts at all levels of experience and behavior:
In conversation with the therapist, you put thought patterns that have stood in your way to the test.
You develop perspectives that help you to look at things more confidently and hopefully and to deal better with yourself and others.
In the course of therapy you will find better access to your feelings.
You will learn to cope well with stressful feelings such as fear, tension, self-blame, and anger, and to pay more attention to positive feelings such as joy, relief, and self-care.
Recurring patterns are observed, interrupted and varied. You expand your repertoire of actions for everyday and difficult situations.
In doing so, you will try out new behaviors or do more of the helpful things that you may have neglected recently.
