Having worked with children who have cancer at the St. Anna Children’s Hospital and in the oncological rehabilitation center “Sonnberghof”/Bad Sauerbrunn, it is my particular concern to accompany, support and develop new perspectives together with affected persons.
I would like to give room for topics such as mental stress factors (fear of recurrence, grief, acceptance, self-care…), the social environment, your lifestyle and possible disease coping strategies as well as developing alternative courses of action in stressful situations.
In winter of 2018 I will start with an additional training for psycho-oncology in cooperation with the Austrian Society for Psycho-Oncology (ÖGPO).
Attention: Clients who are affected by cancer and cannot afford psychotherapy can apply for financial aid at the ÖGPO! (www.oegpo.at)
