My treatment philosophy

mind (engl.) = intellect, mind

gap (engl.) = gap, interspace, interruption

“mind gap” as the name of my practice stands for my way of working as a psychotherapist.

Every one of us will inevitably experience crises, upheavals and stress in our lives. These often represent a cut with our previous view of things. Things that we may have perceived as “given” until then. Sometimes we feel abandoned, disappointed, overwhelmed, alienated, distant from ourselves, from our fellow human beings and from society. Even if we have already successfully mastered crises with the help of our own strengths, resources, friends and family, this time a feeling of being overwhelmed, exhausted and / or disoriented may have set in due to the nature or intensity of the challenge.

Crises, downturns and upheavals represent a burden on the one hand, but at the same time offer many new opportunities and possibilities for long-term positive change and further development.

Same as the well-known announcement of the London Underground, it often helps in life to “mind the gap between the train and the platform”.

It is worthwhile for each of us to consciously take our next steps.

Closely related to this is a second central aspect of my way of working.

Often what we think, feel and how we act seem to happen automatically. We often perceive it as “given” and “unchangeable”. Sometimes we cannot influence what happens to us and in which crises, downturns and upheavals we find ourselves in. But we can decide how we want to the issues life brings upon us.

“Between stimulus and response lies a space. In that space lies our power to choose our response. In our reaction lies our development and our freedom.”

Viktor E. Frankl (1905 – 1997) Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist


It is on us with which attitude we want to face the tasks that life sets us. Psychotherapy, meditation, concentration and memory training promote and maintain the processes in our brain. Brain research today confirms what many researchers have described with Frankl before. Our brain is capable of adapting to changes and learning till old age. It seems even to be made for it. In short, what and how we think, feel and act is anything but set and given.

I would like to create exactly this space with you. In a trusting atmosphere, in a respectful interaction at eye level I would like to accompany you to walk your next steps and support you to find a way to live a self-determined, value-oriented and fulfilled life.
