After reading Byron Katie’s book Loving What Is I worked for one year on the stressful thoughts that came into my mind. I followed the directions in the book and filled in the Worksheets (The Judge-Your Neighbor Worksheet and One-Belief-At-A-Time Worksheet) and the examined thoughts and problems no longer appeared in my thinking. I noticed this only after some time, though. Problems could suddenly, more easily, and quickly be solved. A greater clarity came to me, to my neighbors, and to my work.
A year later I introduced my teammate in the penal system to "The Work.” They agreed to offer "The Work" immediately in prison. I work with individual prisoners and with groups. I work with prisoners awaiting trial and with sentenced offenders. I work with sex offenders, inmates who have a addiction problems, with force offenders, and also with small criminals.
I have worked as an institution psychologist in the penal system for adult men since 1994. Since 2001 I use "The Work of Byron Katie." I had my first "School for The Work" in Bad Neuenahr and I became a Certified Facilitator in January 2009. In addition to my prison work, I do The Work with colleagues, friends, and acquaintances in crises around burnout, overweight, or other stressful problems.
I love to do The Work with you in either English or German
