"When you approach children with authenticity and respect, they open up to you."


Paidion – Old Greek for Little Child. Healing children’s souls and spirits. 

At Paidion we comfort, understand, accompany, restore.  We view each child’s and family’s story within its particular cultural framework and that culture’s customs and are culturally sensitive to diverse value systems.  We believe that respecting the child and their story is paramount and continuously reflect on our own thoughts and actions to ensure this.  We offer a trust relationship beyond hierarchies and see the child as the expert of their own needs.  We believe strongly in letting the child participate and lead the way in their own healing process and invite each child lovingly and playfully, seriously and thoughtfully, clearly and decidedly to take us on this journey with them.  We focus on idealizations and shadows, on personal resources, skills and guide in changing patterns in the way of the child’s happiness.

We use our empathy and guard against any and all judgement. We acknowledge the emotional pain and provide a safe space for expressing it and growing through, out of and in spite of it. We support not only children, teenagers and young adults but also accompany siblings, mothers and fathers on their healing journey as a family. We look forward to be of service to you.

In order to care for even more children Paidion Hamburg is opening a new therapy practice in Berlin as of October 2021. Click here to find out more….
