Dr. Katrin Edelmann

In the following I would like to give you an impression about myself and about my work.

Since the beginning of 2000 I am working as a medical specialist for psychiatry and psycho therapy for children and adolescents in my private practice in Erftstadt. I am married and have 3 children.

During my medical studies in Cologne I began to incorporate valuable additional treatment methods, which I deepend in the following 15 years of my medical activity. These incluce several ongoing psychotherapy educations in:

  • Hypnotherapy (according to Milton Erickson)
  • Solution focused brief therapy (according to Steve de Shazer)
  • Energetic diagnostic and treatment method (according to Fred Gallo)
  • Gestalt therapy
  • Systems family constellations

Within the scope of my medical specialization and psychotherapeutic ongoing education at the medical faculty of the university of Cologne I worked with behavioural therapeutic methods and systems family therapy. Besides my tasks in the inpatient and ambulatory units I worked several years for the special ambulance for hyperactive children. Here I took part in a research project within a multi-dimensional treatment study. In the following I worked in an inpatient psychiatric unit for adults for 2 years and after that as senior physician of a clinic for addiction for another 2,5 years.

In my work with children, adolescents and their parents and families it is important to me to integrate different approaches of treatment. According to me a combination of diverse methods often proves to be the most effective option.

Furthermore I am intensely engaged in holistic treatment methods and body-focused therapies like osteopathy, cranio-sacral therapy, acupressure, energetic psychotherapy, kinesiology, somatic experiencing, homeopathy, traditional chinese medicine/ TCM and ayurveda. These therapy approaches convinced me with their high effectiveness and yet manageable length of treatment for a multitude of psychological problems in infancy and adolescense. Thus it is a matter of particular concern for me to include these therapy methods in the range of offerings in our practice.
