Breast amputation, abortion, heart or spinal surgery and further procedures which are experienced as life-, relationship- or health threatening can leave deep scars. They can offend human dignity and lead to problems in the relationship to oneself and to others. Questions of meaning arise. Negative changes in the relationship up to the lack of sexuality and life crises can be the effects.
Through years of hand-on experience in surgical assistance, I can offer perioperative adjunctive therapies which are particularly useful in case of complex surgical procedures. I will take all the time necessary to answer your technical questions and can introduce you to the basics of self-hypnosis to ease your pre-operation preparations.
This is also beneficial for convalescence, wound healing can be expedited and you will require fewer post-operative analgesics (painkillers).
