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.

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!
