Sometimes a challenge in life can go beyond your own horizon because it is greater than you are.
Personal and collective trauma are always intertwined.
A trauma that has been passed on between generations may interfere with your experience in your own life.
Second and third-generation survivors of the Shoa, descendants of witnesses of war, colonization, and immigration need a safe place to feel into what emerges in them even decades after the events.
With my training in Gestalt Therapy and working together with therapists from countries around the world to establish a high quality in working with intergenerational trauma and resource, I am happy to support you in this.
My offer "Fruits of the Roots" is an invitation to a unique journey to your ancestors.
Going beyond classical genealogy, it is designed to connect you to your ancestors by really feeling them so that they become a true and powerful resource for you today.

Welcome to the world! We can walk the landscape of the soul together.
Essay: The heart of a man is different than the heart of a woman. When he realizes that, he might open up to a whole new universe in love and sexuality.
From my perspective as a therapist, compassion is a natural state of being for us humans. So why is it so hard for us to stay compassionate all the time? Research shows, that when we get triggered emotionally through an argument, a fear of too much debt, a challenge at work, we many times actually shut down our body senses to not feel anymore. The first thing that gets lost then is compassion. This is why I developed a tool box to invite us to come back to our senses and to feel again, ourselves and others. Learn more
About me; my path, ways to work, and my resources
Exploring and shaping life with seven senses;
this is my passion and competence.
Welcome to Seven Senses Berlin.
My name is Joachim, native English speakers like to pronounce it like YouAreHim, and I like that!
I was born in Berlin, Germany. Professionally, I first met people as a reporter, first in Frankfurt am Main, then in Hamburg.
The curiosity and joy in meeting people such as orphan and author John Irving, the Holocaust survivor and president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Ignatz Bubis, and Paul Spiegel, with nearly deaf musician Evelyn Glennie and the former entrepreneur Klaus Ludwig Schweisfurth who became an organic farmer, inspired me to go further.
What is possible in life, how can we develop if we have the courage and support for it?
This question guides and motivates me to this day.
I started a training in humanistic psychotherapy called Gestalt therapy. Later on, I specialized in online counseling in individual sessions and group facilitation,
in well being and soul development of men and in working with collective trauma (pandemic, Holocaust, gender politics).
In my practice Sieben Sinne Berlin (Seven Senses Berlin), I offer to find ways to the essence together.
What is essential to me?
I am excited to be a companion for people.
I think the world is crazy enough and that we find many creative ways to handle fate and challenges.
It becomes difficult when these solutions, which we have often found in childhood, cause suffering in ourselves and with other people.
Then it's time to take the next step and find new ways.
I love life and am committed to ensuring that "everything that lives, can live" (Albert Schweitzer).
In doing so, I let myself be guided by the higher wisdom, the seventh sense.
My most influential teachers for soul and systemic work are Helmut Radke (Hamburg, Germany) and Thomas Hübl (Berlin/Tel Aviv).
My spiritual teacher is Rabbah Saphir Noyman Eyal (Israel), she founded the Kabbalah school Mishkan Hakavana.
My goal is to nourish soul, body, and mind through my work to support clients to live their highest potential.
In workshops and one-on-one sessions I work with the calling to find the inner resources,
exploring your own narrative and ways to transform it. I also like to work with the matrix of the Hero's Journey.
I developed this instrument of power further and love to pass it on ever since then.
Developed by Gestalt therapist Paul Rebillot and based on the insights of mythologist Joseph Campbell,
the Hero's Journey leads through the landscape of the soul. Women and men encounter their unique qualities, feeling their richness and diversity that empower them at work and in personal relationships.
How about finding your own instrument of power, and meet your spirit guide?
I am excited to support you in accessing them in a safe and mindful space.
As a systemic Gestalt Therapist and curious journeyer, a listener to the whispers of life and a wild and vulnerable man I am ready to accompany you with my heart and knowledge to step with you into the not-knowing, letting the answer unfold that awaits for you within the questions and beauties of life.
