The ability to act in everyday life and carry out meaningful activities ensure social participation and have a major influence on our quality of life.
Every person has the right, as far as possible, to be able to carry out an activity that is meaningful to them independently. Independence can be limited or threatened by a developmental delay, a congenital or acquired disability, illness or an accident, and social adaptation skills. We empower you to pursue your goals. We offer you individual advice and therapy options in close coordination with your needs. We have been working for years with medical practices in various disciplines, schools and kindergartens, old people’s and nursing homes as well as residential homes for people with disabilities. This enables interdisciplinary and therapeutically comprehensive work. Since occupational therapy and the quality of our therapeutic work are very important to us, constant training and work according to current guidelines are a matter of course for us. We also offer our therapies in French and English and can also treat you at home.

Trust our expert experience and individual advice and therapy for, among other things:

Dementia is a pathological reduction in mental abilities that severely affects the daily life of those affected.

The goal of occupational therapy is to improve your ability to act in everyday life, your social participation and your quality of life so that you can carry out activities that are important to you for as long as possible. Certain activities, environmental adaptation and counseling are used in a targeted and client-centered manner. Practical everyday activities can be trained here, general mobilization exercises as well as brain performance training tailored to your individual needs. Artistic and creative offerings as well as relaxation techniques can also be incorporated into the therapy. An important part of the treatment is advising your relatives or nursing staff.

A stroke is damage to areas of the brain as a result of a vascular occlusion or a cerebral hemorrhage. As a result, both language and motor impairments can occur. The symptoms can vary greatly depending on the severity of the disease.

The goal of occupational therapy is to restore your independence. This happens, for example, through training in dressing and undressing, personal hygiene and other important household activities. By setting the common goal at the beginning in consultation with you and/or your relatives, you have the opportunity to influence the therapy planning. Here, close, patient-oriented interdisciplinary collaboration between physiotherapists, speech therapists and nursing staff or their relatives is essential in order to ensure transfer into everyday life. Please feel free to contact our colleagues in the field of speech therapy. An immediate start and regular continuation of occupational therapy treatment is absolutely necessary in order to ensure the fastest possible reorganization of the physiological brain performance.


Parkinson’s disease is a chronic disease of the nervous system in which nerve cells in the brain gradually die. Those affected often experience shaking (tremor), lack of movement (akinesia) and muscle rigidity (rigor).

The content of our therapy includes, among other things, training in everyday movements (e.g. putting on shoes, buttoning a shirt), fine motor skills training and writing training. So-called cues (e.g. markings on a piece of paper, commands or clapping) are often used to initiate or maintain an arbitrarily controlled movement. Parkinson’s disease can slow down thought processes, which is why brain performance training is also carried out in occupational therapy. Here, close, patient-oriented interdisciplinary collaboration between physiotherapists, speech therapists and nursing staff or their relatives is essential in order to ensure transfer into everyday life. Please feel free to contact your colleagues in the speech therapy department.

Schizophrenia, also known as schizophrenic psychosis, is a psychiatric illness that severely affects everyday life because thoughts, one’s own body and the environment are experienced as unreal and different. The connection to reality is overall disturbed. To outsiders, thinking often seems slowed down, thoughts seem scattered or trains of thought sometimes break off. Those affected also often have difficulty perceiving feelings or perceive them in a weakened form. Depression is a mood disorder characterized by a low mood. In addition, those affected often report a long-term lack of interest and an equally long-lasting reduced drive.

In both cases, the aim of occupational therapy is to give you a feeling of security in a protected space in order to prevent stress and restlessness from occurring. We first try to build a daily structure with you in order to stabilize your everyday life. When it comes to treatment, we take a more action-oriented approach. During an initial consultation, your individual treatment goals will be determined. We then help you achieve these goals using numerous therapeutic approaches, such as creative methods, targeted brain performance training and relaxation techniques. An important part of the treatment is counseling your relatives.

Children and adults diagnosed with autism often show behavioral problems and have difficulty interacting with those around them. Due to the different forms of autism, the therapy here is correspondingly diverse.

There are methods specifically designed for people with autism, such as the TEACCH program (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication handicapped Children). The individual use of visual instructions and structuring aids serves to make the environment more comprehensible and manageable for you. Sensory integration therapy can also be used. Here, sensory perception and processing are improved through targeted supply of stimuli. Your social environment plays a major role in the success of treatment. You must be able to apply what you have learned in everyday life. The help of your family and friends is crucial for this. Additional therapy options, such as speech therapy or psychotherapy, can increase your chance of coping better with everyday life or even being able to look after yourself completely independently. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our speech therapy colleagues.

A developmental disorder refers to delayed, slow or incomplete motor development. As a result, problems with balance, coordination and perception may occur. Children with this diagnosis are often significantly limited in their everyday skills, such as dressing and undressing, writing or eating with cutlery. They are often described by relatives as “clumsy” or “clumsy”. In addition, when writing, the pen can sometimes not be held in an age-appropriate manner or the writing speed is slowed down. Fine motor activities (cutting, crafting) cause difficulties for these children and they often show little interest in movement tasks. They often need more time to learn motor skills.

We will work with you to define everyday difficulties and set goals. We would also be happy to contact the kindergarten teachers. Psychomotor offers, the “Marburg concentration training”, graphomotor training, left-handed training as well as creative offers for training the use of pens and scissors can be used. Transferring what you have learned into everyday life is of central importance here, which is why you will be heavily involved in the therapy and we will also give your child a little homework.


Children with ADHD often lack concentration and have difficulty sitting still. Self-control is often limited and they act impulsively. They often proceed in a rather haphazard and unstructured manner and have a low frustration threshold. These symptoms are particularly evident in everyday school life, which is why school problems often occur. These children have difficulty absorbing and processing sensory impressions or information in an age-appropriate manner.

In occupational therapy, everyday difficulties are first defined together with you and goals are set. We would also be happy to contact the kindergarten teachers. The attention span can be extended through multimodal individual concentration training in conjunction with psychomotor elements. Your child can also learn to plan actions better and improve both coordination and graphomotor skills. It is important to us that your child has fun and that you are included in the therapy process.

Disturbances in fine and graphomotor skills often have an impact on the child’s entire everyday life. The pen often cannot be held in an age-appropriate manner, the writing speed is slow and the writing is generally unclean and difficult to read. Prolonged painting or writing causes pain in the hand due to a very tense pen position or pressing too hard on the paper. These children sometimes find it difficult to open or close buttons or zippers, which can lead to difficulties in self-care. These children also often have difficulty using cutlery.

In occupational therapy, everyday difficulties are first defined together with you and goals are set. We would also be happy to contact the kindergarten teachers. Graphomotor tasks, “Marburg concentration training” and home exercise programs are used. You and your child will also be advised and trained regarding the optimal sitting position, appropriate dosage of force, safe hand preference and pen positioning so that movements can be carried out in a targeted and isolated manner. It is important to us that your child has fun and that you are included in the therapy process.

Sensory integration refers to the recording, processing and networking of sensory impressions, such as touch/feel, movement perception, balance perception, smelling, tasting, hearing, seeing. The interaction of the senses influences muscle tension, posture, movement and targeted movements. This is of fundamental importance for the development of attention, endurance, concentration, emotional stability and relationship skills.

Within occupational therapy, active and passive sensory and motor activities are specifically used to improve sensory integration (neural integration). Now further goals (improving the ability to act, self-organization, self-esteem, drive) can be pursued. Targeted child-friendly and playful offers for sensory integration are intended to create the conditions for achieving higher goals (fine motor skills, holding a pencil, action planning, concentration). Building on this, these skills will be specifically promoted in your child. It is very important to actively involve you in the therapy in order to work together to develop concrete assistance. We would also be happy to contact the kindergarten teachers.
