Music therapy establishes the setting for expressing feelings and complements our verbal capabilities in a safe space. Prior musical experience is not required.
Music therapy provides new possibilities for the treatment of various topics, for discovering the unconscious, and creating new ways to unfold. The basis of my work is insights from chronobiology – which help to perceive one’s rhythmicity better. A mindful approach to oneself helps you to enter into your rhythm.
I work in a resource-oriented way, focusing on the resources my counterpart brings with them and on what is currently available that we can work with together. Music therapy based on depth psychology is the basis of my therapeutic practice.
Each therapy is individually tailored to my counterpart. We define the goals together. At the beginning of the treatment, we determine the wishes, needs, duration, and intervals for the therapeutic process.
Meeting in the here and now is an essential factor for the method and the therapeutic approach, allowing healing experiences to occur. The listener can better perceive their mood and state of mind from the awakened mindfulness.
Receptive music therapy interventions help to rediscover one’s rhythm. They are breathing and body exercises, simple rhythms, and sound structures in musical play that make it possible to become aware of inner and outer limitations. The goal is a positive and multifaceted experience of self.
Active music therapy is about the encounter – resonance in a mindful, protected space. Everything may be. Emotions, thoughts, physical sensations, and pain are allowed to express themselves, to be heard and perceived. In the musical form, the unspoken takes on a sound, a rhythm, a shape, or an expression.
