Self-care means being gracious with yourself.
Taking a deep breath instead of yelling, getting out of the setting instead of escalating the situation. Assessing my counterpart’s action situationally rather than immediately personally. Setting boundaries that prevent you from acting out. Clearly communicating one’s needs rather than expecting the other person to read one’s mind (and then being disappointed when they can’t).
Complaints can be complex, the causes multiple or deep-seated. As a physician, author of health books, as well as a mediator, I look at the physical, psychological, mental AND emotional aspect of your issue.
Behavioral, emotional and communication patterns that have become ingrained over years or decades can be uncovered and be changed.
In seminars, I work interactively and in group settings.
In face-to-face-coaching, I tailor my counseling to your individual needs. I ask you questions for self-reflection, I work on emotional memories and self-boycotting behavior, among other things. I support you in activating your reserves, strengths and positive feelings. I motivate you to get into your action quickly.
Step 1: Diagnosis
Diagnosis of the health burden (stress, hormone imbalance, unhealthy diet, chronic illness, toxic relationship, unhappy communication patterns, unsatisfactory work environment, and many more).
Step 2: Identification
Uncovering emotional memories and blocks. Looking at self-boycotting behavior through shame, anger, doubt, perfectionism, lack of confidence, self-reproach, self-deprecation, lack of self-love.
Step 3: Integration
Integration of needs, feelings, etc., often buried or neglected for years or decades.
4th step: Self-efficacy
Activation of your individual physical, psychological and mental resources. Prioritization of tasks, time management, setting limits. Working out positive beliefs. Practicing clear communication. Realization of local and temporal retreats.
