Prof. Dr. rer. medic. Harriet Salbach

Harriet Salbach

I am a psychological psychotherapist, child and adolescent psychotherapist, coach, group behavior therapist and supervisor and have several years of experience in treating children, adolescents and adults in individual and group settings.

I have been working in my own practice since 2010 and specialize in couples therapy, coaching, eating disorders, depression and burnout.

Couples therapy aims among other things on improving communication skills and coping with conflict and stressful situations in the partnership. In the discussions, the current partnership is analyzed and new ways are shown and tested. Couples therapy can address crises, communication difficulties, sexual problems, extramarital relationships or separations.

In addition to this focus, I also work as a coach to support professional and / or private reorientations.

I also have several years of experience in the treatment of depression and burnout. Burnout is understood as a state of exhaustion or "burnt out" that can arise from extreme (including professional) demands, frustration and stress. While the depression, the main focus is on constant sadness, lack of motivation as well as helplessness and hopelessness.

Another focus of my work is the treatment of eating disorders. Central to the treatment of eating disorders are the promotion of motivation to change, the normalization of eating behavior and weight as well as the improvement of body awareness.

Through additional psycho-oncological training, I also have knowledge and experience in psycho-oncological treatment and in supporting patients and their families in dealing with cancer.

Through further training in the field of DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) I also have expertise in the treatment of borderline personality disorders and in the treatment of suicidal patients.

In addition, I have been working as a lecturer in science, teaching and training events for several years. Thanks to my advanced training in behavioral therapy, I work as a supervisor for individuals and groups.
