On Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis

During the last decades hypnosis has become an established method with scientifically proven results.

Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis in Berlin

The goal is to put the client in touch with their inner experiences and their subconscious rather than with their thoughts and ideas about the issue.

While in hypnosis it is easier to connect to the inner strength, or other resources that help accelerate changes.

All the resources needed are already within and just need to be rediscovered and applied to the current situation.


My areas of expertise:

  • Self worth issues

  • Depression

  • Anxieties and phobias (fear of flying, of social situations, fear of talking in public, test anxiety, fear of driving etc.- but also a general anxious feeling)

  • Traumas

  • Stress and burn out

  • Weight loss

  • Stop smoking

During the first session we talk about the issue in depth, sometimes there is already time for some work in the hypnotic state. Usually, in all other sessions hypnosis is applied. Hypnotherapy is considered a short time therapy,- on the average between 6 – 16 sessions. One or several individual audio recordings are part of the therapy, as well as self hypnosis. Both help to deepen and strengthen the desired changes.
