My professional experiences
2000-2006 I used to work in a clinic for Psychotherapy and Psychosomatic Medicine for adults in Southern Germany, near the Lake Constance. My main focuses were individual and group therapy based on psychodynamic methodes, pain treatment program with psychodrama, couple therapy, relaxation programs (autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation) and psychological testing.
The clients had a variety of disorders such as somatoform pain disorders, somatisation disorder, affective disorders, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders or personality disorders. I used to work in a multi-cultural environment as I worked with colleagues and clients from different countries in Europe, South America and from South Korea.
As clinical psychologist and psychodrama-therapist I worked freelance in Hong Kong from 2008 to 2011. Since 2012 I’m based in Munich. After one year of work at the psychosomatic ambulance of “Klinikum Rechts der Isar” and several months at psychiatric day care in Fürstenfeldbruck, I’m back to freelance work. At the “Berufsfachschule für Krankenpflege der Klinikum Freising GmbH” I’m teaching Psychology.
