Our thoughts, feelings and emotions as well as our experiences on both the inside and the outside affect our physical and mental health -
and vice versa.
I am currently studying Health Psychology (B. Sc.) to expand my theoretical background knowledge in the fields of psychology, health and medicine. I mainly research how our thoughts, feelings and emotions as well as our experiences on both the inside and the outside affect our physical and mental health - and vice versa. To this end, I also combine health psychology with energy psychology. In practice, I work with Mindflow.
What is Health Psychology?
Health psychology focuses on maintaining physical and mental health, researching and developing health-promoting measures, health behaviour patterns and prevention – also, for instance, when it comes addiction.
It examines how stress affects health, how to cope with stress and where the causes lie. An important part of health psychology is health promotion and prevention. It deals with resources, resilience, stress management as well as prevention and intervention measures.
Unhealthy behaviour patterns, stress or illnesses are often not necessarily due to medical or biological aspects. Psychological and social factors in particular can play an important role. For this reason, health psychology is also about researching personal, social and structural factors that influence physical and mental health.
The decisive question is what makes us ill and what keeps us healthy, and how to counteract or support it. Therefore, health psychology is not just purely about psychology, but also about the influence of the body on the mind and vice versa. It includes areas such as anatomy and physiology, stress management and burnout prevention, reasons for anxiety and depression, pain therapy, psychoneuroimmunology, behavioural medicine as well as individual health concepts.

The only way we can change our lives is to change our energy —
to change the electromagnetic field we are constantly broadcasting.
In other words, to change our state of being,
we have to change how we think and how we feel.
