I see my full-time profession at the psychosomatic division for child and adolescence care at university clinic Basel as my calling. I enjoy working in a team, helping and guiding young adults to find their way back to themselves. The implementation of the Zen philosophy is a personal enrichment beyond words when it comes to the encounter between my clients, their parents, and me. In difficult situations, deep mindfulness and meditation give me the required peace and serenity.

Qi gong gives power, enhances stamina and keeps me flexible. The combination of Zen and qi gong strengthen my back internally and externally. A life without Zen and qi gong? Would be possible but no longer an option for me.
