Doreen Kruse

Graduate psychologist and psychological psychotherapist

Since 2010 I have been working exclusively as a psychotherapist and since that time also with great pleasure in the Private cardiology active. I specialise in the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders, burnout and psychosomatic complaints.
Before studying psychology, I worked as a nurse in an internal intensive care unit. After graduating as a psychologist and obtaining my licence to practise as a behavioural therapist for adults, I was entrusted with setting up the psychological unit of a cardiological rehabilitation department. I continue to further my education, for example as a certified relaxation trainer PMR according to Jacobson (2009), in hypnotherapy according to M. Erickson and Core Evolution with Dr. Siegmar Gerken as well as in Focusing. I am very enthusiastic about mind-body medicine.


Psychological psychotherapy

Since 2008, I have been licensed as a behavioural therapist for adults and registered in the medical register of the Hamburg Medical Association. In my work, I integrate methods from various scientifically recognised therapeutic directions that suit me and inspire me.

Mindfulness and acceptance

Today, it is also scientifically recognised that the practice of a mindful and accepting attitude has a variety of positive effects, including various health-promoting effects. MBSR (J. Kabat-Zinn) and Focusing are examples of this. With Susanne Kersig I learned the basics of Focusing and how to conduct mindful body dialogues (2015/2016).

Scientifically based hypnotherapy

From 2011 to 2012 I completed the entire basic course of further training in "Ericksonian approaches to hypnosis and psychotherapy" at the Milton Erickson Institute in Hamburg and subsequently various advanced seminars. I can very much identify with the consistent resource orientation and the underlying conception of the human being of this therapeutic approach.

Far Eastern knowledge

In the near future, I plan to incorporate my fascination with Far Eastern knowledge such as Qi Gong, meditation and Buddhist psychology into my work.
