Somatoform disorder – our therapy

If psychological causes are behind your physical complaints, our caring team of experts at Schoen Clinic Bad Arolsen are here for you. The triggers and perpetuating factors of somatoform disorder are different for each patient. For this reason, we start your therapy by taking time to get to the bottom of the individual causes of your somatoform disorder with you.

Then we prepare a multimodal treatment for you. This includes, among other things, strategies for self-help that are precisely tailored to your somatoform disorder and your personal situation, in addition to intensive discussions. You’ll first learn to accept certain symptoms rather than resign them, and to rebuild healthy self-confidence. We also rely on strategies of cognitive behavioural therapy, physical and social activity and other building blocks like mindfulness or biofeedback. We only use medication as a supplement where truly necessary.

The goal of therapy: to change the way you deal with bodily complaints so that you can enjoy life again and, over time, reduce the complaints themselves in the long run.
