Private clinic for trauma / PTSD

Joy in life again

Critical life events, traumatic experiences, or chronic psychological stress: trauma triggers an acute stress response in the body – the pulse rises, the heart beats faster, blood sugar levels rise, and increased stress hormones are released. The natural processing procedures to cope with situations are blocked by extreme stress in the brain, which is why many people lose the memory of an accident or other traumatic experience.

We specialize in treating stress-related disorders such as trauma, trauma sequelae, and PTSD. Our treatment concept is accompanied and supported by Prof. Dr. med. Christian Otte, Deputy Clinic Director at Charite Berlin. Professor Otte cooperates, among others, with the Director of the Department of Psychiatry at NYU, Prof. Charles Marmar, one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Trauma symptoms

The immediate reaction to a particularly stressful situation is often initially experienced as a state of shock or crisis and is characterized by a mixed and changing picture of different symptoms

  • Emotional numbing
  • Depressive symptoms
  • Anxiety, irritability, and jumpiness
  • Despair
  • Retreatment and internal apathy
  • Hyperactivity
  • Sleep disturbances and difficulty concentrating
  • Distortion of reality and self-awareness
  • Nightmares and flashbacks
  • Partial amnesia

Consequences of trauma

As a result of the stress and in response to the associated symptoms of trauma, the following concomitant disorders are pervasive, either individually or in combination:

  • Addictive disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Psychosomatic complaints

Causes of trauma

Many possible situations can have a traumatic effect: the sudden death of a relative, involvement in an accident – as a victim or eyewitness. First responders to serious traffic accidents, doctors, police officers, firefighters, or soldiers in war zones often experience highly traumatic situations during their missions, which result in severe psychological stress.

Dr. Kjell R. Brolund-Spaether Chief physician

“We focus on people and try to meet them where they are. In addition to treatment, according to medical guidelines, we are aware that every patient knows what is good for him. That is why we listen very carefully to what the patient expects from us and his or her therapy and then decide on a very individual basis. Together, we put a highly individualized and holistic treatment plan!”

Holistic treatment concept for trauma / PTSD

In order to be able to make a precise diagnosis, one of our specialist experts will first conduct a detailed diagnostic discussion with you at the start of therapy. In this way, other possible illnesses can be ruled out. After a thorough diagnosis, the main focus at the beginning is on stabilizing the affected person and preparing for trauma work. If stability is sufficient, this is followed by trauma-focused confrontation. We actively integrate you into the entire process, from the diagnosis to the aftercare concept! Because we perceive you as a person in your entirety. The jointly developed treatment plan, tailored to you, enables you to integrate your personal therapy success into your everyday life in a sustainable manner.
