psychoanalysis & psychoanalytic psychotherapy

In my psychotherapeutic practice I offer two forms of treatment psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.


In one or several initial interviews we discuss your concerns and clarify what form of therapy you might need.
Terms and conditions (such as frequency, cancellation policy and fee) are  clarified and agreed in the course of these initial sessions.



Psychotherapy provides an effective treatment for people with psychological and psychosomatic disorders. People may seek help for specific reasons such as early childhood trauma, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessional behaviour or phobic anxieties. At other times help is sought because of more general underlying feelings of depression or anxieties, difficulties in concentrating, dissatisfaction in work or inability to form satisfactory relationships. However, the value of psychotherapy is not limited to those with mental health problems.

Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy make it possible to delve into problems and concerns and to identify their underlying unconscious aspects, thereby promoting personality development.

The unconscious aspects of mental suffering or difficulties can be identified through the relationship between patient and analyst. Understanding why certain actions that are perceived as painful are repeated helps discover paths toward the emotional freedom necessary to make substantive, lasting changes.

Both psychoanalysis and the psychoanalytic psychotherapy (which is based on the theory and technique of psychoanalysis) are state-recognized as scientific psychotherapeutic methods and are accredited psychotherapy methods in the Austrian health system. Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy may help when caught in recurrent psychic problems (e.g. anxiety disorders, depression, personality disorders, neuroses and psychosomatosis).


There are a variety of reasons for seeking psychotherapeutic help, including anxiety/panic attacks, persistent sadness, psychosomatic illnesses, recurring conflicts at work, in relationships, partnerships or in the family, burn-out, stress related to crises such as transitional crises (adolescence, coming out, birth and becoming parents), addiction, eating disorders, trauma, difficult life events, loss of a loved one or long-term physical health conditions (e.g. cancer, long covid).


Your concerns will be discussed in a safe setting and together we will explore what led you to ask for help and what form of therapy you might need.
