Tools, Methods and helpful Approaches and Procedures in working with and on the ‘Red Thread’

There are numerous “methodical” approaches and tools that I use. I love working with transactional analysis and other humanistic approaches.

I also feel inspired by many wise minds … William James, Christian Morgenstern, Meister Eckhardt, Viktor Frankl, Eric Berne, Edith Eva Eger, Stephen Covey, Manik, Jean Liedloff, Rainer Taeni, Frank Ostaseski, Pema Chödrön, Gabrielle Roth, Byron Katie and many others. “Cherry picking” … for my clients. Because most of them say the same thing – only wonderfully always in different words!

And what is really in the foreground for me is always the question of what exactly is helpful NOW for the person I am currently serving and removes their bottlenecks – so that it can “flow” again.

The following approaches, which are explained in much more detail, are really just examples.


What is EMDR?

With EMDR we can address bottlenecks on the physical, mental and subconscious levels!

In therapeutic coaching, EMDR is a surprisingly successful method for resolving deep-seated negative beliefs, which I have used successfully with clients on many occasions. I use EMDR – depending on how it fits into the individual process; and I like to call it “hypnosis without hypnosis”.

I completed my training as an EMDR coach/therapist at the Christoph Mahr Institute in Berlin.

EMDR stands for “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing”. This simple but potentially highly effective method stimulates both hemispheres of the brain. The mode of action was originally discovered by the American psychologist Francine Shapiro and developed into a method.

In my experience, the best “recipe” is to engage in a holistic process that addresses as many different levels of consciousness as possible; everything (in different areas of life) is almost always connected to everything else. This is the red thread principle: let us determine which connections exist in your case and how you can use your own strengths to find your way out of your situation and into a new quality of life.

The choice of methods and approaches is then the second step – EMDR may be suitable depending on your situation.

 Let’s talk about it – I look forward to hearing from you. 

What does EMDR do?

Assuming openness, EMDR causes the subconscious to “deliver” images and life scenes relating to the core issue at hand. It is about seeing these and (really) feeling them (without getting lost in them). This journey then goes further and further inwards.

From a neuropsychological point of view, the old, often deeply rooted “alarm” in the amygdala is finally is dissolved.

This can bring significant relief – like a heavy rucksack that you have been carrying during a long hike in the Alps, for example, and now suddenly set down: What a LIGHTNING! 

For whom is EMDR worthwhile?

EMDR is worthwhile and is an extremely exciting approach for anyone who has the courage to really go much deeper – and to heal or allow to be healed parts of themselves that are often are often hidden and are detrimental to today’s life and the joy of living in the present.

In which situations can EMDR be the “remedy of choice”?

EMDR can be a good complementary treatment for trauma, the consequences of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and for strong emotions that have a lasting negative impact on quality of life. These issues often lead to secondary phenomena such as depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, phantom pain, pain disorders in general, as well as psychosomatic disorders, allergies and obsessive-compulsive disorders.

EMDR can also be a valuable part of coaching and therapy work: The method helps to process such experiences by processing and resolving various components – such as stressful images, feelings, cognitions and body sensations – and to integrate them in a significantly “healthier” way.

Application examples:

  • How can I find a new job when I’m not “really good” at anything?
  • I want to find a new job, but I feel some deep inhibition.
  • How do I find out what I want? – Whenever I think about it, I get sad?!
  • Why can’t I let go?!
  • What is my purpose, my calling? – What is holding me back?
  • I want to let go and learn to trust, but I just can’t do it.

In principle, EMDR is all the more suitable the more precisely and concretely the root or core the more precisely and concretely the root or core feeling that represents the emotional burden has been worked out.


At the ‘Red Thread’, working with EMDR needs to take place in physical presence – at least the first couple of times.


No roots, no wings (Bertold Ulsamer): So, heal your roots! And then allow yourself to fly!

I would be very happy to accompany you through such a process and arrange packages with you in which the use of EMDR is embedded.

I look forward to hearing from you.


What is the YAGER code? 

The YAGER CODE is an excellent method for getting to the deep psychological roots – the roots of those problems that limit our joy of life without us being able to consciously access them. In principle, it is a kind of hypnosis – but without hypnosis!

I embed the application of the YAGER CODE, or sometimes individual elements of it, into my processes with clients – this can also sometimes be used for online coaching.

I completed my YAGER CODE training with Dr. Preetz.

What is the effect of working with the YAGER code? 

When working with the YAGER CODE, we assume that all accessible resources – not just the conscious ones – can be used to access numerous causes of physical issues (pain, addictions, etc.) and mental impairments (e.g. fears of all kinds). The corresponding problems can be alleviated or even healed in this way.

For whom can YAGER be helpful?

Similar to EMDR [Link!] – it can provide access to dimensions that lie outside our mind.

In other words, for people who understand that they often approach things too “cerebrally” and that the solutions of the mind are often not optimal.

And for people who are aware that there is “more” than just “body / soul / mind”.

In which situations is YAGER worthwhile?

Application examples

  • I want to find a new job, but I feel some deep inhibition.
  • How can I find a new job, I can’t do anything “really well”?
  • I am afraid of … , what can I do?
  • Why can’t I let go?


What is the EmotionsCode?

The EmotionsCode was developed by Dr. Nelson Bradley after he discovered that so-called “trapped emotions” can have an amazing energetic effect.

He also successfully applied the method to his wife, who was very ill at the time. He later supplemented this approach with the BodyCode, among other things.

The EmotionsCode uses a specific procedure, which also makes use of kinesiology, to identify and then resolve the currently distressing emotion in question using a schema.

This approach is also an energetic method that draws on forces outside of cognitive thinking – which is precisely why it can be very effective.  

What are the effects of working with the EmotionCode?

This work can also produce immediate physical phenomena – or at first seemingly no immediate effects at all. Changes are often noticeable within the first five to ten days; sometimes it also takes a few sessions on the subject, especially if it is possibly even a matter of inherited, inherited or hidden emotions.

Sometimes it can also be a good idea to tackle an issue “as a whole” (i.e. including all the emotions involved).   

For whom is working with the EmotionsCode worthwhile?

For anyone who is sufficiently open to approaches outside of cognitive thinking. Otherwise there are hardly any restrictions.

In which situations is it useful to work with the EmotionsCode?

The possible applications are broad.They can relate to a specific stressful emotion – which may still be difficult to name and is then identified. Or to a topic where blockages are obviously active and which does not really want to “flow”.


What is Introvision?

Introvision literally means “introspection”.

It involves following chains of thoughts and emotions inwards and going deeper and deeper in the process.

What does Introvision do?

The resolution or alleviation – for example of fears or other stressful emotions – and therefore also the effectiveness of Introvision is based on the ability to emotionally feel a painful feeling, a fear-inducing sentence, an unpleasant inner image or a painful memory, to be able to allow it and to endure this unpleasantness for a while.

From a neuropsychological point of view, it is a matter of a part of the brain about the size of a plum – the amygdala – often having “alarm buttons” stored in it since childhood.

It is precisely these that need to be deleted. As much as they were necessary for survival at that time, today they are a burden on the quality of life and lead to inner blockages.

Who is Introvision suitable for?

This approach is also suitable for (almost) everyone.

The charm is also that this approach in particular can be learned and then increasingly applied by yourself.

In which situations is Introvision worthwhile?

Again, we can summarize that Introvision – like the other approaches – is very useful for treating and “looking at” stressful emotions.


  • “I am afraid of showing my work”
  • “I always feel angry with [my boss, my colleagues …] at work”
  • “When I think about my partner, I often feel an underlying resentment”
  • “When I think about …, I always feel sad immediately”
  • “I feel depressed when I think about my to-do list”

TYPUS profile

What is the TYPUS profile?

The TYPUS profile is a very pragmatic – and inexpensive – profile that can be created quite quickly. In conjunction with appropriate instruction and, in particular, the provision of the relevant background information, the learning effect about yourself, your own communication and others is enormous.

It is also an excellent supplement to the Team Management Profile (TMS). 

What does the TYPUS profile do?

In short: lots of “eye-opening” experiences …
And insights.
About your own communication. About the communication of others.
And about difficulties in communicating with others and ways to improve them.

For whom is the TYPUS profile worthwhile?

It is ideal for people who want to (possibly re)position themselves and engage in an effective process of professional reorientation [link to Professional reorientation]. Also for anyone who wants to better understand and work on their own communication. 

Team Management Profile / TMS®

What is TMS?

The Team Management System was developed by the two Australians Charles Margerison and  Dick McCann. 

They wondered why there are groups of people who “function” as a powerful and highly effective team and even have fun and enjoy each other, and other groups who are more immersed in internal conflict.

This research led to the development of the TMS profiles – propensity profiles that show where someone’s preferences lie. And also the team management system, which acts as a kind of philosophy and umbrella.

The central core of such a profile is therefore – according to the evaluation – the “main inclination” and the two “secondary inclinations” that follow in terms of expression.   

What does TMS do?

Knowing one’s own profile and understanding the other characteristics and the “philosophical” background has a potentially enormous influence on one’s own communication and also on one’s understanding of oneself and opportunities for further development.

It is also – as the name suggests – an excellent tool for team development.

Including the integrated model of the so-called “Linking Skills”, the Team Management System is ultimately even ideally suited as a tool for corporate management – the topics of agility, agile thinking and agile corporate management and agile team management are already present here in spirit or can be very well combined with it.

For whom is the TMS worthwhile?

The TMS profile, including an intensive introduction to the system, is highly recommended for people who want to get to know themselves better.

Also for people who are looking for a professional reorientation [link to professional reorientation].

And of course for managers who want to develop themselves further.

Finally, it is ideal for company managers who want to use it as a tool for corporate management and a healthy corporate culture.

In which situations is TMS worthwhile?

  • Getting to know yourself
  • Very well suited to understanding your own communication and that of others
  • Team development and further team development
  • Improving team culture and team effectiveness
  • Excellent for “building a framework” for the (further) development of the corporate culture
  • Tool for personnel management – possibly in conjunction with the TYPUS profile – according to the motto “The right person for the right task with matching aptitudes and strengths”.
