Psychotherapy according to HPG

Bringing more life to life.

At the begin­ning, per­haps good to cla­ri­fy: I belie­ve that peo­p­le who use the­ra­py are not sick, but cou­ra­ge­ous. And I’m con­vin­ced that pret­ty much ever­yo­ne bene­fits from inner work who starts it. A back­ground lies in the way our ner­vous system responds to chal­lenges: Whe­re­ver an expe­ri­ence is too chal­len­ging to respond to fluid­ly, the ner­vous system ensu­res that the expe­ri­ence is com­pen­sa­ted for intern­al­ly. With mecha­nisms that have pro­ven them­sel­ves over thou­sands of years. This is wise to pro­tect our­sel­ves,- and has the dis­ad­van­ta­ge that this pro­cess is not con­scious to our­sel­ves. The built-in com­pen­sa­ti­ons remain invi­si­ble and imper­cep­ti­ble, but sus­tain­ab­ly redu­ce the ran­ge of life and experience.
The goal of the­ra­py is to gra­du­al­ly release more of this fro­zen life force so that it is available for other things: more ener­gy, more clear gut fee­lings, more know­ledge of what my life can look like. It is often the first the­ra­py expe­ri­en­ces that make roots more pal­pa­ble again and new move­ment more pos­si­ble. The­ra­py is thus also a step towards ones­elf: To that which is inher­ent in one’s own life in terms of strength and depth.

Psychotherapy according to HPG in practice

I have been working as a non-medi­cal prac­ti­tio­ner (psy­cho­the­ra­py) for seve­ral years. I real­ly app­re­cia­te psy­cho­the­ra­peu­tic work with cli­ents. The­re is no other form of con­sul­ting that goes so deep and has such a lasting effect. The fact that effects are often noti­ceable after a few hours is also due to the natu­re of the work: we dive deep, with body-the­ra­peu­tic approa­ches accor­ding to Peter Levi­ne we can relax char­ges in the ner­vous system, with hyp­no­the­ra­peu­tic methods we can enter into a rela­ti­on­ship with pre­con­scious con­tents. The syste­mic lens brings mindful­ness of eye level, inner ambi­va­len­ces, and boun­da­ries of inner pro­cess to be respec­ted. By working in fixed pro­ce­s­ses of seve­ral hours rather than in indi­vi­du­al ses­si­ons, we also have a clear and secu­re frame­work struc­tu­ral­ly to accom­pa­ny deeper issues well.

For example:

  • Working with a young woman with a strong inner stress experience for which no conscious cause can be found.
  • Work with a successful manager who repeatedly observes how individual situations occupy him more deeply than he would like after work.
  • Working with a young man who has uncovered his own issues through self-awareness, which he now wants to integrate more deeply and in direct companionship.
  • Working with a young man in the early years of professional life on what lies beneath the stress in close relationships and on clarifying tensions in the family of origin.
  • Work with a young woman who was more tense and irritable after an accident than before.
  • Work with an experienced manager in a corporate environment on the perception of feeling on your own and having to fight through difficult situations.
  • Work with a team leader in a corporate environment on high stress experience prior to public presentations.
  • Working with a man on symptoms of insomnia and latent restlessness for which there seemed to be no triggers.
  • Working with a midlife woman on integrating early experiences of loss that involved a fundamental fear of closeness.
  • Working with an experienced health care worker to process stressful experiences following a client's assault.
  • Work with a woman after an inpatient stay in a psychosomatic clinic, in order to accompany the transition into everyday life well and to transfer what has been learned.

What it could be about:


Build more vibrant relationships

For many peo­p­le, deep and authen­tic rela­ti­on­ships don’t come natu­ral­ly, wit­hout you being able to pin­point exact­ly why. Tog­e­ther we look at what stands in the way of deeper cont­act and open the space for new expe­ri­en­ces. This often chan­ges the cont­act to others — and the clo­sen­ess to oneself.

Finding life through the crisis

Cri­ses are chan­ges that are or were too much to respond to fluid­ly with on-board resour­ces. The ner­vous system then takes over the role of regu­la­ti­on and ensu­res that the rest can con­ti­n­ue to func­tion. Some­ti­mes this goes hand in hand with a lot of emo­ti­on, some­ti­mes with sur­pri­sin­gly litt­le. We look at what it takes to get back on the ground and get the ner­vous system well connected.
Crisis & Trauma
Fear, Anger & Grief

Learning to live with intensity and discharge activation

Inner rest­less­ness, strong fee­lings, chro­nic stress or the fee­ling of being very thin-skin­ned: We look deeper behind sym­ptoms and reli­e­ve the ner­vous system whe­re ener­gy is mobi­li­zed. No mat­ter if you know the sto­ry about it or not.

Clarify what has been in the way of the life force so far

Often peo­p­le come inward­ly sub­dued, list­less, drai­ned. Or they don’t even know what they are the­re for — just that some­thing is not going well right now. Some­ti­mes this is asso­cia­ted with ten­si­on in the body or latent rest­less­ness. Some­ti­mes so quiet that you could almost miss it. We take a clo­ser look at what it is actual­ly about and what it would take to bring more power back into life.
Burnout, exhaustion & depression

How it could go further

If you feel that this work would be inte­re­st­ing for you, you could arran­ge a first mee­ting. This is free of char­ge and wit­hout obli­ga­ti­on. If you wish, a first tri­al les­son will fol­low. After this, you can deci­de whe­ther to con­ti­n­ue in a pro­cess. This also has a clear end at which we can deci­de whe­ther to end the joint work, inter­rupt it for a break or let you sail on solo.
Arrange a meeting without obligation

Go on, if you want.
