Who I am
Daniel Holbach, born 1979, in Berlin since 2005. Important to me, apart from my own personal process, were my travels to India, the Middle East and South America, my yoga practice and encounters with a multitude of therapists, healers, coaches and teachers.
Professionally the first step in my career was Computer Sciences. Initially I worked as a software engineer, but soon my interest shifted to the processes and concerns of teams and projects - especially working with volunteers in Open Source communities. So, I know the fast-paced working life quite well. In my sabbatical 2017 I became “Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie”.
As you can easily see from my own development, I firmly believe in second chances in life. I believe our inner wisdom shows us the way and that we can learn more and more to trust our vitality and our bodies.
Why did I become a therapist and why is this work a matter so close to my heart?
For years I was deeply unhappy myself, I lived relationships in ever-repeating loops I did not comprehend. In my core I felt wrong, foreign or insecure a lot of the time. I experienced hollow bleakness and did not see opportunities for change. I thought more than I felt and did not understand urgent impulses of my body. It required crisis on multiple levels and the encouragement of people close to me, for me to finally embark on this voyage. It has led me ever closer to myself and to becoming the person I actually am.
After years of individual and group therapy, all kinds of self-exploration, workshops, retreats and experiences I realised how much the work had changed and inspired me. In 2016 I decided to become a therapist myself and support people on their personal path.
