About us

Our psychotherapeutic work builds on a client-centred and experiential framework. Within this humanistic approach, the psychotherapeutic relationship is seen as the basis for the therapeutic process. The individual, and his or her way(s) of experiencing and giving meaning to events and feelings, is central to us. It is the client who determines the content of the therapy, while the therapist carefully monitors and stimulates the process. We offer you the necessary support to be able to reflect upon yourself and your situation. By doing so, we attempt to put stalled processes back in motion.

We strive to provide quality psychotherapy.
All psychotherapists working at Kairos are clinical psychologists, have completed a certified and long-term training in Client-Centered Psychotherapy and are continuing further training. Each of us belongs to a professional association, has a large number of years of professional clinical experience and participates on a regular basis in intervision or supervision.

Our vision

“Kairos” is ancient Greek and stands for the occasion, the favourable moment or the right time to take a new road or to accomplish something. “Kairos” also refers to experienced time versus measured time.

Kairos represents a process-oriented and optimistic view of life and psychotherapy. Within a secure and stable therapeutic framework and focusing on your experience, we allow you to recover and reconnect with yourself and with others. Taking the time to reflect on your possibilities and limits creates space for acceptance and change.
