Psychotherapy in English

Welcome! I’m Volker Klärchen, a medical practitioner for psychotherapy ("Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie").

If you're an English speaker living in Hamburg or simply prefer to communicate in English, you're in the right place.

My Services

I provide a range of psychotherapeutic services to help you through challenging times.

Here are some areas I specialize in:

  • Panic Attacks: I’ll help you cope with and reduce panic attacks.
  • Depression: We’ll find ways to deal with and overcome depressive episodes.

Stress Management and Burnout Prevention

Stress is a common issue in today’s world. I help you recognize and manage stress before it becomes a serious problem. My approaches include:

  • Relaxation Techniques: Learn methods such as progressive muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, and meditation.
  • Time Management: Tips and techniques to better structure your daily routine and avoid overcommitment.
  • Self-Care: Strategies to take better care of yourself and ensure regular breaks.

Boosting Self-Esteem and Confidence

A healthy self-esteem is the foundation of a happy life. I help you boost your self-esteem and build your confidence. This includes:

  • Setting Boundaries: Learn how to set boundaries and say no when necessary.
  • Recognizing Strengths: Develop an awareness of your skills and talents.
  • Self-Love: Practices and exercises to foster and solidify your self-love.

Why Choose Private Therapy?

While I understand that the cost of private therapy can be a concern, there are several reasons why many choose this path:

  • Flexible and Short-Term Appointments: You can often start therapy without long waiting times.
  • Greater Confidentiality: No information is shared with your health insurance provider.
  • No Restrictions: You decide how often and how long you want to work on a particular issue.
