The consultation and the first interview

Our work is based on closeness, contact and encounters. That is why we would like to get to know you and your child during our consultation hours. Together we will discuss how and the better way to support your child. We take about 90 minutes for such an initial consultation. In these 90 minutes we play with your child, get to know each other and experience your child during a meal. After the interview, we will give you our first impression. 

The individual therapy

In some cases, about ten therapy sessions of 50 minutes are sufficient to achieve a significant improvement in the eating situation. In addition to talking to you, these units are about eating and playing with your child. In the course of the therapy, we find solutions and ideas to positively influence the situation at home.

If we get to the conclusion together that weekly therapy is not enough, we will include you in our more intensive programs.

Das ambulante Programm

Wir bieten für Familien die Möglichkeit für ambulante Termine in unserer Praxsi nach Essen zu kommen. Wie oft Sie bei uns in der Praxis zu Besuch sind, hängt ganz von den Bedürfnissen Ihres Kindes ab. Durch unsere kontinuierliche Begleitung lernen wir Sie und Ihr Kind kennen und bauen nach und nach die Abneigung gegen das Füttern und Essen ab.

The intensive phase

Our time together will end with an intensive phase of 3 to 5 days. Our goal is that after our intervention, your child will be able to eat and live completely without a tube.

For a successful therapy, we rely on a calm, safe and ongoing exchange, in which we are happy to involve your local therapist too.  

The intensive program

With our program and treatment concept, we are pioneers in the field of outpatient tube weaning. Thanks to the trust that families have given us over the past decades, we have been able to gather an enormous wealth of knowledge. We incorporate this knowledge into our globally unique therapy for tube dependency. We focus entirely on your child and a maximum of one sibling. In this way, we can accompany your family individually at mealtimes: for five to seven days, we are by your side between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. with four to five meals.

Treatment in our Institute 

As an alternative to visiting you at home, we offer you our institute in Mühlheim as a child-friendly and safe environment for therapy. Our team of therapists concentrates entirely on your child and you as parents. Team of Therapists konzentriert sich völlig auf Ihr Kind und Sie als Eltern. 

That far we drive

Whether at your home or at our institute, together we will find out what is bothering your child when it comes to eating. Often your child does not reject the food itself, but the feelings that arise from the eating situation. Our goal is to get to the bottom of these feelings and turn them into positive emotions.

Our method offers an alternative to the inpatient treatment lasting several weeks. If you are looking for an effective and child-friendly therapy concept, with us you have an experienced and empathetic team by your side.

Due to the high demand, we ask you to contact us as soon as possible.
