Michael Bachg, Certified PBSP Therapist, Supervisor, & Trainer. PBSP-Trainer and Coordinator for PBSP-Trainings,  Institut für Fort- und Weiterbildung in PBSP und feeling-seen.

“I offer and teach PBSP in my private practice, the PBSP Institute and in other institutions. As a humanistic based method it helps me to assist Individuals, groups and organizations in the ongoing process of growing and developing. I appreciate the basic assumption that accurate interaction with the outside world is the foundation of the development of the true self. By that, personal development is always embedded into the world of interpersonal relationships to other human beings. That leads to a mature form of autonomy in which we see and experience our self as one among others, brothers and sisters, who share responsibility for the integrity of creation. By integrating PBSP into my  work with children and families, which I have for more than 25 years, I created a complete new form of body-oriented child and family therapy which I called Feeling-Seen. My special interests and expertise are leading workshops and training groups in PBSP and Feeling-Seen, research,  and creating new products.”

Of all the therapy methods I know (and I have looked at a great number of them), PBSP is the first that I find completely convincing. PBSP has everything I value in other individual therapies, depth, respect, safety, plus its own unique access to actual healing, all in a unified approach. PBSP is not dependent on the charisma of a particular therapist, but is well defined in theory and intervention techniques, i.e. it is teachable and learnable. As a therapist, I find the method very satisfying, positive and successful./From my clients, I receive impressive <; feedback on how quickly and deeply they profit from their structure work – and very often not only the clients themselves, but their loved ones with them. And, rather than suffering with the client, my mirror neurons rejoice in sharing the antidote scenes that are created in each session. So I use the method whenever possible. A lot of my clients travel from quite far to enjoy (yes, enjoy!) this particular kind of therapy, so I am in the happy position to do PBSP therapy for almost my entire working time.”  German Translation

Holle Burger Gooss, Certified PBSP Therapist. Dipl.-Psych., Psychologische Psychotherapeutin.

“After the final university examination in psychology 1968 I worked for 5 years as a clinical psychologist at the University Psychiatric Hospital in Basel for adults and thereafter for children and adolescents (for 3 years) before I started my own practice in 1982. I was trained in psychoanalysis, systemic family therapy, bioenergetics, transactional analysis and (since 1983) in PBSP. I am now member of the PVSD/PVDS and was president of the Education Committee of the Swiss-German Association for Pesso-Therapy (PVSD) for 7 years. As I was trained in several methods and have 30 years of experience in therapy I am used to treat patients with a wide range of disorders, especially neurosis and psychosomatic disorders. My preference is to give presentations to interested colleagues in life situations at conferences and symposia.”

Almuth Roth-Bilz, Certified PBSP Therapist and Supervisor. Dipl.-Psych. Diplom in Psychologie,  Universität Mainz und Marburg. pprobation als “Psychologische Psychotherapeutin”

Ich komme von der Biologie, Neurobiologie und der klientenzentrierten Methode her. Insofern ist mir den Ansatz der Pesso-Methode vom Grundansatz her einleuchtend. Seitdem ich mit dieser Methode arbeite, kann ich bei meinen Klienten dauerhafte und tiefgreifende Veränderungen wahrnehmen, die dem entsprechen, was Al Pesso beschreibt: „ to become, who we really are“ Ich arbeite am liebsten mit älteren Erwachsenen, Einzeln und in der Gruppe.
