Our Therapy Concepts
Success in treatment due to diverse therapeutic experiences
A multitude of therapeutic experiences are enabled for you by a network of treatment modules. This overall high density and intensity of therapy allows for far-reaching therapeutic changes within a manageable period of a few weeks.
The team of our highly qualified therapists prepares a therapy plan tailored to your situation at the beginning of your stay. Your treatment will be exactly tailored to your history, resources and needs.
Mindfulness-based exercises help you to experience moments consciously and without judgement and to listen to your body. This reduces stress and helps to master everyday life in the future.
Biofeedback means the continuous feedback of biological signals. With the help of a computer, body signals, such as increased vegetative tension or muscle tension, are confirmed and made aware. These signals are otherwise difficult or very inaccurate to perceive. The primary goal of the therapy is the recognition of connections between thoughts, feelings and body reactions, as well as the perception and targeted influencing of physiological processes, which are important in the maintenance of mental, psychosomatic and physical diseases.
Our clinic works according to the so-called "reference therapist system". As early as during the admission interview, our patients already get to know their reference therapist (psychologist or doctor), who will work with them to develop the individual disorder model based on biography. On this basis, he/she creates the customised treatment plan together with the patient and develops the targeted therapeutic interventions.
Whether yoga, progressive muscle relaxation or autogenic training: Relaxation methods help many people to reduce stress and recover. They become more balanced and sleep easier. We offer you a whole range of relaxation methods that you can learn from us and later use at home.
We pursue the goal of bringing you closer to a health and pleasure-related eating behaviour. In addition to conveying information based on current scientific findings, it is important to us to promote your personal responsibility. A long-term stable change in eating behaviour is paramount.
The basis of our work is the so-called "anti-diet principle". This focuses on the basis of a balanced diet, on the one hand on the physical signals such as hunger and satiety and on the other hand on the sensual perception of taste and pleasure. It means (re)learning a natural eating behaviour without a bad conscience, prohibitions and calorie counting.
The biggest help for many sufferers is that they learn that they are not alone with their illness. Scientific studies have strongly confirmed this. Disease-specific, so-called indicative group psychotherapies ensure the application of highly effective procedures for individual disorders. From occupational therapy groups for teachers to the bereavement group, every patient should, if possible, participate in specialised group therapies. In this way the most effective therapy is possible.
Hearing therapy is used in patients who suffer from tinnitus, noise sensitivity and/or hearing loss. It enables them to reduce the burden. At its core, it's about a process of evaluating and processing the disturbing or missing auditory impulses differently. In the group and with the therapists, this is first discussed theoretically and then practically exercised.
Integrative movement therapy
In integrative movement therapy you learn to consciously perceive your body, thoughts and feelings. In addition, you make conscious experiences about how body and psyche influence each other. This thus achieves two effects: You relax and simultaneously notice how you can positively influence your condition yourself.
Art and design therapy
Art therapy in behavioural therapy refers to the patient’s current problems with themselves and their environment. Process-oriented design has a much higher value than result-oriented work. According to the behavioural therapeutic approach, existing resources are shown to patients to strengthen autonomous disease management. In addition, behavioural patterns are clarified by mirroring and feedback from the therapist and group members, facilitating a transfer into everyday life and initiating the modification of behaviours. The developed therapy goals are an integral part of the treatment plan.
The term physical therapy includes all treatment forms, collectively, that use physical effects such as heat, light or water, to relieve or heal pain. These include, for example, various massages, heat packs or electrotherapy with, for example, stimulation current applications, ultrasound or shortwave therapy.
The various types of physiotherapy strengthen your musculature, mobilise your joints and improve posture. You will learn exercises that you can later do regularly at home, even without a therapist present, enabling you to regain a better quality of life in the long term.
Our social service counsels you and your family on psychosocial and legal matters that arise as a result of the respective illness. We help you with questions about and applications for rehabilitation, organising care after staying at our clinic and much more.
The counselling service is part of the overall treatment plan and is available to varying degrees depending on the illness and treatment contract. The objective is "help to self-help", which is orientated towards individual needs on one hand and competence on the other.
Sport therapy and physiotherapy
Our movement therapy or basic groups are a fixed, compulsory basic offer, which is tailored to the needs of the individual wards, with their different focuses. The methods and contents of the groups are primarily geared to your needs and picture of the problem.
Exercise is used as a medium for the most different therapeutic goals. The groups thereby represent an integrative component within the behavioural medical concept. Functionality takes a back seat to goals, such as new individual physical, interactive, emotional, cognitive, educational, social and psychological experiences.
The experience-oriented "sport" is in the foreground. You learn to reduce fears, avoidance and protective behaviour as well as to regulate states of tension. You also gain a realistic assessment of your performance and resilience.
