Early on, I was interested in the relationship between the individual and society, the struggle for freedom on the one hand, and the compulsion to adapt on the other. With the study of psychology and political science at the Freie Universität Berlin, I followed this interest and was already intensely involved with the psychoanalysis, the human image of which was obvious to me.
After completing my degree, I entered a position as a psychologist in psychiatry and at the same time was strongly associated with the English movement of antipsychiatry in London. During these years, I took part in my psychoanalytic training at the Institute for Psychotherapy in Berlin, as well as a body psychotherapeutic training course in bioenergetic analysis. In doing so, I was concerned with integrating the different approaches in a holistic view of body and soul.
Afterwards, as a body psychotherapist, I directed groups that extended over a number of years, and worked as a psychological psychotherapist and psychoanalyst in my own practice within the framework of a doctor’s license. In the meantime, I’ve been working for more than 30 years and I’ve never stopped wondering how special and unique every path is, on which I can accompany a person to himself.
