"I always find it fascinating what becomes possible, when someone overcomes his problems and hindrances.“




My credo: Change is possible!

One can overcome even long ranging personal problems successfully. This holds true for people of all ages and managers across all hierarchical levels. To face one’s own problems and to work on the individual change is a very personal process.


Trusting relationships as equals

A reliable and trustworthy relationship between client and myself as a counselor offers the supportive framework for real change. For me, an encounter as equals is thus a key requirement in order to overcome problems and recurring patterns as well as develop new ways of thinking and behaviors.

Real commitment and professionalism

I am committed to my clients as a counselor and human and support them professionally on their way. My professional commitment includes a system based on scientific approach and the continuous education, training and supervision of my work.
