Current situation: Coronavirus information (COVID-19)
The psychology pratice is open. To prevent coronavirus, various measures have been put in place:
- In the discussion area, the seat distance between the psychologist and the clients is approximately 2.5 m. For certain activities carried out at the table with children and adolescents (e.g. when carrying out assessments), this distance is 1.5 m.
- A disinfectant hand spray is available to clients. They disinfect their hands before entering the consultation room.
- The objects and materials used when working with children/adolescents are disinfected after each use.
- The "free play" corner has been removed, to avoid the presence of toys used by many children.
- A disinfectant spray for surfaces is regularly applied in sensitive areas (WC, washbasin, door handles, chairs).
- We ask clients to come at the scheduled time, in order to prevent previous and next clients from crossing paths, or more than one family in the waiting area at the same time.

Coaching for children and / or families

This is a mentoring that I carry out together with you and your child in structured and guided meetings. Depending on the initial situation, the personality of the child, as well as the overall situation, I suggest different techniques, exercises and discussion topics concerning the child's problems; I give feedback and open up new ways to look at the situation. Together we develop strategies and the concrete steps towards improvements, with reference to the dissatisfactions and difficulties that have brought you to me.

The coaching achieves a further development of the child and possibly also its family. The child's situation or interactions in the family are not seen as satisfactory and there is a desire to be supported and to deal with it in order to improve the situation.

In case you are not sure whether a coaching or therapy for your child respectively your family is best suited, I can advise you and give you recommendations. Psychotherapy is usually indicated in more difficult situations when the emotional situation is very complex and a deepened, possibly even medically supervised treatment is indicated. Coaching, on the other hand, is recommended for people who already have a certain level of stability and wish to develop their abilities and potentials.

My experiences in coaching are based, among other things, on my activities at the CACB Center for Assessment and Coaching as well as in the psychological counseling of children and families.
