Certified BioDynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release Practitioner
Michael was born 1962 into an entrepreneurial family and pursued his first career as a PhD graduate in business administration in marketing and finance. At some point this did not seem to make sense any more and a personal crisis triggered Michael’s quest for deeper meaning. He tried a wide variety of therapeutic methods, including psychoanalysis, family constellations, bioenergetics, hypnotherapy, hakomi, and vegetotherapy.
Most important for him were Psychoenergetics with Peter Schellenbaum and Holotropic Breathwork by Stanislav Grof. Michael realized how essential it is to include the body into trauma therapy and he experienced breathwork as a particularly helpful way of doing this.
He is also trained in Shiatsu, a gentle bodywork from Japan, and is a non-medical practitioner for psychotherapy (Heilpraktiker Psychotherapie).
Michael chose to train with the Biodynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release Institute because it integrates all elements that worked for him and combines them in a wonderful way. Michael works as a certified BBTRS practitioner in Berlin.
