"when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate."
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is an effective method to a long-lasting change. It is an inner adventure to discover who you are deep inside. The approach in psychodynamic psychotherapy is to understand the nature of the inner conflict that prevent you from feeling good and motivated in life, from having satisfying relationships, or from dealing with challenges with all the personal resources that are available in your personality. It is probably the most courageous course of action, to look at your anxieties and grow beyond them. I offer psychotherapy in English, German, and Hebrew.
The experience in the group can be a powerful motor to change. Group-therapy provides a social microcosm which is nothing like you can experience in everyday life. The renowned psychoanalyst Prof. Felix de Mendelssohn suggested that clients who came to group therapy benefited much more than those who were seeing a therapist one on one, because the group stimulates feelings that can remain hidden in the usual therapeutic meetings. It is a great opportunity to increase self-awareness and to improve the quality of your relationships. I offer the group to English speakers living in Vienna who would like to have a deeper understanding of their emotional world.
Living in a rapidly changing culture is a challenge. Talking to a
psychotherapist or life
coach can ease mental difficulties and increase understanding of self and others. English speakers
in Vienna can improve their well-being through working on personal growth.
In Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, we assume that the mind is confronted with emotional forces that are unconscious. The human mind needs support in dealing with internal forces, else it will collapse like a surfer that is overwhelmed by the sea. The ability to surf invisible patterns inside the personality is a neglected aspect of modern life. The focus on science has brought us many technological advantages but at the cost of psychological health. Being afraid of the inner storm results in all kind of anxieties, low self-esteem, and inability to form healthy intimate relationships. Psychotherapy aims at finding an inner balance to ease these symptoms.
I offer the First appointment free of charge. The purpose is for both of us to see if there is a good fit to work together. You can also leave a message, or call +436643569925
Donald Winnicott was a psychoanalyst who worked mostly with children, but his groundbreaking ideas and depth apply to adults just the same. He realized that in the therapeutic relationship it is important to establish a space where playing with reality is possible once again. In the world of dreams and feelings, the concepts of right and wrong are no longer valid. If your experiences in life have made your personality timid or shy, it means that your mind is not able to play with the energy that belongs to deeper layers in you. This makes it difficult if not impossible to become the person that you would like to be. Investing in becoming your true self with an English speaking therapist could therefore be the most important investment that you will ever make.
"It is Play that is the universal, and that belongs to health: playing leads into group relationships; playing can be a form of communication in psychotherapy; and lastly, psychoanalysis has been developed as a highly specialized form of playing in the service of communication with oneself and others."
