Susann has been trained with the European Hakomi Institute and has furthered her Hakomi and RCS (Recreation of Self) training in Edmonton. She also trained in a variety of holistic methods, Heart-focused process work, Somatic Experiencing, HeartMath Resilience Building, Co-active Coaching, Mindful Self-Compassion and others…
Susann worked for many years as the coordinator for bereavement support and psychosomatic counseling and as a therapist with individuals and groups in non-profit agencies in Germany and Canada.
She is in private practice since 1999. In her work, Susann integrates several body-mind-heart approaches into her own unique blend, adjusting to the individual clients needs, wishes and goals. These cutting edge methods, are rooted in the orientation, that all knowledge, growth and healing emerges from within the client. Having gone through a deep and ongoing awakening process, Susann offers a sensitive, loving and kind presence, creating a safe and free environment for growth and healing in the client to occur.
Complementing Hakomi with Mindful Self-Compassion and Acceptance-based methods supports the client to dis-identify from the trance of the conditioned mind. Heart focused mindfulness connects the clients with their own heart and its resources, and establishes a deeper presence and anchor connected to the heart, the body and more of our potential.
Susann often serves as a mentor for living from the heart and activating deeper and higher resources and embodying those in our daily lives.
“What I love most about Hakomi is the safe and playful curiosity in how we explore together core beliefs and the limiting inner voices that are in the way of authentic and truly fulfilled living. From there a natural unfolding happens. To see people blossom is a deep joy for me.”
Together with her husband Ernst she offers Immediate Shift workshops and “open heart circles”.
