Trauma Therapy

Body and Depth-Psychology Oriented Trauma Therapy


Childhood experiences leave lasting imprints on both our physical and mental well-being. These experiences shape our beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. Some of these experiences fall into the category of developmental traumas. Even though they are often elusive, their effects manifest in the form of blockages, emotional overreactions and underreactions, perfectionism, etc., affecting our relationship with ourselves and others.

The therapeutic approach, Körper- und Tiefenpsychologisch-orientierte Psychotherapie (Body and Depth- Psychology oriented Trauma Therapy) has been primarily developed from Laurence Heller's Neuro-Affective Relationship Model (NARM®) and Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing (SE)® by Dipl. Päd. Angelika Doerne and passed on to many therapists like myself.

Heller's research indicates that very early traumas have adverse effects on the development of self-esteem, evoke increased feelings of shame, reinforce the sense of "being excluded," and increase vulnerability to psychosomatic illnesses.

Peter Levine's SE is also a body-oriented approach that aims to restore natural self-regulation in the nervous system, thereby resolving symptoms arising in the body as a result of trauma.

In contrast to conventional therapy approaches that seek a new approach to challenging situations through discussions about past events, Body and Depth Psychology-oriented Trauma Therapy focuses on the connection between the body and mind to work on resolving trauma at its source on a deeper level.

I am here to support you as you delve deeper into connecting with yourself, uncover and dissolve outdated patterns, bid farewell to limiting beliefs, and tangibly improve the quality of connections in your life, whether it be with yourself or others.
