Overcoming Depression

Am I just sad or depressed?

  • Are you feeling overwhelmed by a heavy cloud hanging over you?
  • Does it seem like no matter how hard you try, you just can’t shake off the weight of sadness?
  • Is it hard for you to find joy and motivation in everyday life?
  • Does it seem like your energy has vanished, leaving you with a constant feeling of tiredness?
  • Do you no longer find joy in things that used to bring you pleasure?

You're not alone. Depression affects millions of people worldwide, and seeking help is the first step toward healing. But what if traditional talk therapy isn't quite cutting it for you? That's where body-oriented therapy comes in, offering a unique approach to addressing depression by integrating the mind and body.


What is depression?


Depression is more than just temporary sadness or feeling down. It can significantly disrupt daily life. Symptoms can be physical, emotional, and mental, ranging from persistent sadness to sleep disturbances, lack of energy, and self-doubt. But there is hope and help. Do you want to learn how to better manage negative thought cycles and depressive feelings?


How I can support you


In my body-oriented psychotherapy practice, I combine various approaches to help you manage your depression and improve your quality of life. Through empathetic conversations, physical exercises, and experiential methods, I support you in understanding your feelings, breaking negative thought patterns, and finding new ways to cope with stress.


What choose body-oriented psychotherapy?


Many people who come to me have already experienced traditional therapy methods, such as behavioral therapy or psychoanalysis. They understand how the past still influences their life today. They have analyzed situations in which their inner child speaks up. But understanding alone does not always lead to change. Experiencing the discussed issues, beliefs, and feelings in the body is a completely different form of understanding.


I believe in a holistic approach to treating depression that involves both mind and body. In our sessions, we work not only on managing your symptoms but also on strengthening your resources and promoting your self-care. Together, we develop strategies to help you regain your zest for life and achieve more balance.


Body-oriented psychotherapy is particularly helpful in treating depression as it considers the interaction between body and psyche. This way, you can learn to let go and better regulate your feelings.


You prefer to deal with things on your own?


I understand how hard it can be to ask for help, especially if you're used to solving your problems alone. But you don't have to fight this battle by yourself. It's brave to admit that you need support and to take the first step out of the tunnel. In my practice, you'll find a safe space where you can open up and feel understood.


Client feedback on overcoming depression in our sessions

a little light in the darkness


After several stays in psychosomatic clinics and various forms of therapy, I found Laura. I was looking for body therapy because I wasn't making progress just "talking". At the time, I was suffering from extreme body pains and severe depression. After the first sessions, I regained a sense of my body for the first time in years and was able to switch off and relax. This allowed me to perceive a little light in the darkness. I especially liked that I reached my physical limits, which allowed me to feel much lighter physically and emotionally afterward. Of course, I'm not "cured", but I'm on a good path there.

with passion and understanding


❝ I have learned a lot from Laura. About myself, my patterns, and my depression. She helped me through a difficult phase, and I was able to reconcile with many things during therapy! I've been through many therapies, but none have helped me as much as this one. Laura is an empathetic and at the same time clear, intelligent therapist with a lot of passion and understanding.
