Individual Therapy and Coaching
Creative solutions for individual challenges
Going beyond well known methods, I provide you with tools with which we can tackle your personal challenges. This could be, for example, gaining more self-confidence through the method of gradual exposure from behavioral therapy. Or the Fear setting process from Tim Ferris to manage fears and worries.
Or even exercises from top therapists in private practice in the U.S., such as “The tools” by Phil Stutz and Barry Michaels.
Up to the application of proven life tips of the Stoics or spiritual masters.
From my personal experience, there are dozens of techniques and tools that can help you solve problems and gain more joy in life.
Feeding your demons - Buddhist inspired psychotherapy
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a therapy method that can help in the processing of traumatic experiences and stressful experiences. EMDR has been successfully used in a variety of clinical trials to reduce symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In addition, EMDR has also been used in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, addictive disorders, and other mental illnesses. The method has also proven effective in managing stress, pain, sleep disorders, and other physical ailments. Francis Shapiro developed EMDR in the 1980s, and since then numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of this therapeutic method.
The method uses the brain’s natural ability to process and come to terms with traumatic events. The therapist will help you focus your attention on specific eye movements or sounds while talking about the traumatic experience. This stimulates the brain to process and integrate the trauma in a new way, which can lead to a reduction in emotional distress.
EMDR can also be used for personal development, as it can help with processing negative beliefs and self-limiting beliefs. By working on these issues, you can boost your self-esteem and build a more positive self-image.
Meditation is a practice that can help calm the mind, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being. For beginners, simple techniques such as focusing on the breath, bodyscan, or metta meditation are recommended.
In breath meditation, one focuses on the breath to calm the mind and let go of distracting thoughts. One can either focus on breathing in and out or on the feeling of the breath in the nose or in the belly.
In bodyscanning, one draws attention to different parts of the body to become aware of how the body feels. This technique can help release tension and improve body awareness.
Metta meditation is a form of loving kindness meditation in which one develops positive thoughts and feelings for oneself and others. This technique can help cultivate compassion and positive emotions.
Meditation is suitable for anyone who is willing to practice regularly and enjoy the benefits of the practice. It can help calm the mind, reduce stress, improve concentration, and increase overall well-being.
