Christian Heigl

Somatic Experiencing© Practitioner &  Ayuervedic Practitioner

Born 1974 in Linz, Austria, father of one daughter and one son. Since 2003 I live in Zurich, Switzerland. 

For years I have been working online with international clients from all over the world in the field of trauma which I combine with my 20 years of experience in Ayurveda Medicine. 

What distinguishes me and what can you expect in working with me?
I would describe myself as empathetic and compassionate. My clients tell me, that they appreciate the protected space i create for them and that they are not ashamed to talk about difficult topics. And that it is with me often so quick to recognize old patterns and thereby discard them.  With 20 years of experience i have a great joy to work with people.
