Depending on your situation, we will use either Skype or telephone to communicate with each other. For some specific problems, therapy via e-mail is an option. We’ll discuss the frequency of your sessions together. In the beginning you will fill in questionnaires in order to ensure a better understanding of your problem.
My clients are only adults above the age of 20. Due to my licence in Germany I can’t accept any clients younger than that for an online therapy.

In face-to-face consultations there is a dramatic under-supply of psychologists and long waiting lists or inconvenient hours. The advantages of online therapy are obvious:

  • Convenient access from your home or wherever you are.
  • Sessions available outside normal working hours.
  • Frequent sessions possible.
  • Perfect solution for business and long-time travelers.
  • Psychological services in areas where it is normally unavailable.
  • Provided anonymously if so desired
The efficacy of psychological counseling and therapy via telephone or video chat was unequivocally established in a number of international studies. Research shows that the benefits of online therapy are at least equal to traditional in-office settings. Of course, success always depends on you as a patient, your cooperation, and your desire for a change.
If you are interested in online therapy, we will arrange an appointment for an initial consultation. This initial consultation takes about 15 minutes and is free. I will decide if your individual situation and your psychological problem are compatible with online or telephone therapy. For some, face-to-face therapy is the only option that works.
The duration of psychological counseling is very variable and depends on the particular problem. In most cases, it varies between 5 and 20 hours. Of course, shorter consultations are possible.
