Ars longa, vita brevis.

Dr. Robert Ridwaan Eibl, Psychotherapeutic Medicine - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

My name is Robert Ridwaan Eibl. I am an Austrian trained general practitioner with a special interest in mental health and psychotherapy. After spending nine years working abroad, two of which in England, two in Australia, and five in Germany, and gathering a broad range of experience, I am looking forward to supporting people with psychological and psychosomatic problems who prefer communicating in English to German.

Personally I hold very positive, optimistic, yet realistic views on life, cherish humanistic values and believe in life-long learning as well as sharing of knowledge.

In therapy I strive towards creating an atmosphere of welcome, valuation, and openness, in which we can - as partners - examine difficult past experiences, and experiment with new ideas, thoughts, and ways of behaviour. To support this I offer a transparent and non-denominational approach.
