II did my training in psychiatry and psychotherapy with special interest in psychoanalysis in the PLK Weissenau, the university hospital of the Universitaet Ulm in Germany. I was lucky to establish myself in the profession during a time of new therapeutic possibilities, a situation for which I was and remain very grateful to my teachers and colleagues. I also work today in couple therapy, having been trained by C. Gammer in family therapy. Under the guidance of Prof. Hole, I have taught hypnosis to students (medical doctors) of psychotherapy in Germany, later in Zurich, at the Psychiatric University Hospital Burghoelzli. For some years, I have been working in Paris as a practitioner in my private office; in addictologyI am attached to the HEGP/AP-HP. When treating my psychiatric and psychotherapeutic patients, I also include behavioural therapy (e.g. DBT, Scheme Therapy).
