Group offers of our psychotherapeutic counseling

We have different group offers. In the following overview you can inform yourself comprehensively.

Please note!

Participation in all groups is only possible after a preliminary interview.

Groups starting soon

Is it difficult for you to say “no”, because you don't want to disappoint or hurt other people?

Do you regularly do things that you don't want to do (e.g. staying late at parties even though you're tired) because other people asked you to?

Can you feel other people's needs better than your own?

Setting boundaries is very useful to lead an authentic life. Due to certain biographical experiences, some of us have learned to mistrust our intuition. But: Setting boundaries is something you can learn.

In this group we approach the topic from two sides: In the first part, you will learn ways to connect to yourself and your needs. This helps you realize where your boundaries are. In the second part of the group, you will have the opportunity to develop personal strategies to set boundaries and practice these in a warm and non-judgmental environment. In the group we want to answer the following questions together:

  • How do I realize where my boundaries are?
  • What does it feel like, when I have overstepped my boundaries?
  • Why is it so difficult to distance myself?
  • How do I communicate these boundaries?

Is it worth the effort? Yes! Because setting boundaries opens up time and space to follow your own aims and dreams, helps you to step up for yourself and gives you more energy and joy!

Queer people are very welcome!

How do our group therapies work?

Generally in the programme - addition to waiting list possible

These groups are always on our programme, so if you are interested and want to be part of the next start, get on the waiting list.
Please indicate the name of the group in the subject line.

You are always busy, distract yourself and reach for your mobile phone when you have to wait five minutes for the bus? But you can't meditate because your "thoughts are always wandering" and you're "too clumsy" for yoga?
If you find it hard to relax and be in the moment as soon as there is silence around you, this is the group for you.
This group includes yoga elements for which you need no previous experience, but curiosity to try yoga.
