Therapies on offer

In many cases, cancer is a significant burden for those affected and their relatives and can impact all areas of life. Our psycho-oncology practice, run by Dr Magdalena Maria Berkhoff, offers psychotherapy.

Psycho-oncological psychotherapy can help adults, adolescents and children overcome the following symptoms:

› Feelings of fear, grief, loss of a loved one, loneliness, helplessness and feeling overwhelmed

› Insomnia, depression, nervousness, inner restlessness

› Tiredness, lack of energy and joylessness

› Problems with physical changes

› Marriage, partnership or family problems, or high expectations of oneself

› Problems in the workplace, with colleagues, supervisors or expectations of oneself

› Dealing with changes in sexuality

What you can expect from us

In the first session we talk about your concerns. Together, we work out a way forward by clarifying to what extent we can support you and your situation. Our offers range from individual counselling sessions to intensive psychotherapeutic support. We also use relaxation techniques, imagination, breathing techniques, mindfulness exercises and more.

We offer the following languages:

› German
