Highly Gifted Children and Adults
Highly gifted people amaze by their quick perception, very good memory or enormous general knowledge. Sometimes they have a talent in a certain area - science, languages, crafts, business, art, etc. But not all gifted people are overachievers. Some of them struggle and keep stumbling over the same stones in their work and personal life. How you can be happy with yourself and your private and professional life as a gifted person - this we can find out together.

Or just somebody to listen to everything you have to say. I will be happy to help you, together we develop coping strategies and look for a suitable solution.
Trauma Therapy with EMDR
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a trauma psychotherapy method, developed by Dr. F. Shapiro, which has been proved to provide successfull treatment for traumatized patients. During the therapy, the patient returns mentally and emotionally to the situation of the traumatic experience and follows the therapist's hand movements with his eyes while keeping his head still. The method can be used for the following problems:
Effects of stressful life experiences
Sadness after experiences of loss
Children´s developmental and behavioral disorders
Anxiety and panic disorders
EMDR has been proved to provide rapid relief and spares the patient direct confrontation with trauma.
Why is my partner reacting this way? Why do we always argue about the same issues? Both partners bring their story to the partnership. Couples therapy can help you gain a better understanding of each other's history, emotions and behavior patterns, and help you get closer again.
Highly sensitive people tend to react sensitively to noise, light, smells, and touch, but also tend to have sensitive reactions on an emotional level: they feel emotionally hurt more quickly, are prone to worry about things, need more time to themselves. High sensitivity occurs in around 15% of the population. Highly sensitive people are not always understood by those around them, sometimes they struggle to assert themselves. If you are a highly sensitive person and are struggling with your special qualities, I can help you develop coping strategies and learn to attend to your needs.
