Scientific research has confirmed the experience from practice that even in the case of serious physical complaints and illnesses it is beneficial to make use of psychotherapy in addition to medical care. This is because body and soul are closely connected. A successful psychotherapy has many positive consequences on partnership, family, health and work situation, which means more quality of life. This is not least because good psychotherapy reduces anxiety and stress and strengthens the ability to talk to each other and build relationships. The client-therapist relationship is characterized by mutual respect, goodwill and honesty. As a relationship of trust, it requires absolute openness on the part of the client and confidentiality on the part of the therapist. Psychotherapy and teaching analysis are processes of learning and development. In these processes, cognitive and loving abilities are strengthened and integrated, overcoming negative personality aspects and releasing resources. Of course, this requires discipline, time and patience.
