Counseling in Zurich

Individual Counseling

When you are feeling anxious, depressed, angry, or simply confused by life, reaching out to someone else for help can be difficult. We offer a psychological counseling and support in a non-judgmental, safe space for you to express and explore what is troubling you.  Together we will find out what is behind your suffering.  We counsel people of all ages, at any phase of life.

Relationship and Marriage Counseling

People enter into relationship and marriage counseling for a number of reasons – poor communication, infidelity, or lack of intimacy to name only a few.  No matter what your particular relationship problem is, couples counseling can help you gain insight into the underlying dynamics of your interactions with each other, something which serves you not only as a couple, but also as individuals. 

Dream Interpretation

Are you interested in learning more about what your dreams are really about? Dream interpretation can lend insight into our most resistant patterns of behavior and help guide us into new, more flexible ways of being in the world. The goal of dream analysis is to integrate the dream material into our conscious lives, something that broadens our perspective and enriches our lives. We also offer dream groups.

What is Anxiety?

Healthy anxiety can cause just enough tension to force us into action, such as working late to finish a project for work or staying home to study for an exam. However, unhealthy anxiety keeps us from being able to do anything, mostly out of fear. The most common components of chronic anxiety are constant, generalized fear and worry about life.

What is Depression?

Depression is not the opposite of happiness. Depression is a loss of your precious vitality. It is the inability to find joy in the things that once made you happy. Depression makes even the simplest of daily activities too exhausting to even think about. More than a passing state of mind, depression becomes a way of perceiving one’s life as hopeless, aimless, or meaningless.

Stress

Stress is a natural biological response that prepares our body to face or flee an enemy, however, our bodies are not designed for long periods of stress. Many people today are experts at being stressed out, and without knowing it they are doing untold damage to themselves, both physically and psychologically. If you are looking for ways to learn how to relax and manage stress, psycho-education can not only lend insight into the sources of your stress, but it can also give you the coping skills you need to calm yourself in any situation.

Counseling & Jungian Analysis in Zurich

You will not be charged for your first counseling session. That way, we can freely explore the possibilities of working together.  If we take the next step together and begin the work of Jungian analysis, counseling or dream interpretation, then what is most important is that we establish an atmosphere of trust, open-mindedness, and absolute freedom for you to speak about whatever you want to bring into each session - the good, the bad, the ugly, and sometimes, even the unthinkable. We will explore all aspects of your life, such as your past and how it relates to your present; the contents of your inner dialogues and fantasies; your daily interactions; and your dream life. Throughout the process, we are always on the watch for hidden meaning and unrealized potential.  The best way to approach Jungian analysis or dream interpretation is for us to meet weekly, though in some cases, twice per week can be helpful - especially in times of crisis. This work is not easy.  We will have ups and downs, but if you are committed to your process, you will transform not only your life, but also the lives of those around you.  This is the way we change the world - through our individual work.

If for some reason, you feel that you cannot work with one of us, we will happily refer you to someone else who does counseling or traditional psychotherapy in Zurich.

Can Meditation Really Change the World?

If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation. – Dalai Lama Can meditation really change the world or are the Dali Lama’s visions of a world living in peace the dreamlike visions of John Lennon?   Meditators and yogis have been saying for eons that meditation makes us happier, calmer, and more compassionate toward others. Other reported benefits are decreased stress, enhanced […]

Living in a Material World

Not only are we unconsciously drawn inward where we are driving down the road and forgetting the journey or engaged in internal dialogues, we can also be unconsciously drawn outward into the world of meaningless externalities. For many, the external world is irresistible and no one seems to notice the grip that this world has on them.   People get into their cars and immediately turn on the radio or music.  When they get home they […]

The Necessity of the Ego

The ego gets a pretty bad rap these days. I can’t count the number of times someone says something like “It’s just ego,” or “It’s all ego,” as though the ego were something we should or even could just dispense of at will. As the center of our conscious mind, the ego is a psychological necessity. Perhaps a lot of what people say today comes from the influx of Eastern philosophy. It is important to […]
