What is Psychotherapy?

“Therapy” is from the Latin word therapīa, from Ancient Greek θεραπεία (therapeía, “service, medical treatment”), from θεραπεύω (therapeúō, “I serve, treat medically”).  It is an attempted remediation of a health problem following a diagnosis, usually synonymous with treatment.

“Psychotherapy” is the treatment of the emotional, physical, relational aspects (i.e. the bio-psycho-social parts) of an individual through the treatment of the psyche.

There are many different psychotherapeutic methods. I am a fully accredited gestalt therapist with IGWien, Vienna. I train with gestalt therapists from Europe and America. I am also an active researcher in gestalt psychotherapy.
