What I don't do

I am well aware of the limits of my professional activities and I take them seriously.

I do not work within the health care system, I do not give diagnoses and do not offer psychotherapeutical treatment, as it is for instance required for anxiety, panic or compulsive disorders, phobias, depression, post-traumatic stress disorders, and other issues with disease character. I will gladly counsel you on an individual and neutral basis with regard to different psychotherapeutical procedures and settings and assist you to find a suitable professional offer.

In case you are currently in search of a psychotherapist, I also recommend the webpages of Psychotherapeutenkammer NRW. Here, you can be assured to find professionally trained psychotherapists according to region, procedure (e.g., behavioural, psychodynamic, analytic or systemic psychotherapy) and payment procedure (public health insurance vs. private / direct payers). A few collegues also offer sessions in English or other languages.

Some professional labels like "Psychologe/in" and "Psychotherapeut/in" are legally protected, others like "psychological counsellor", "coach" or "life counsellor" may freely be used by anyone. Also, a "Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie" does not necessarily have any degree or further training (in contrast to a full "psychologischer / ärztlicher Psychotherapeut"). Levels of qualification vary a lot here. In your own interest, please consider the professional background of the persons you contact for support.
