About Minimal Psychology

What is Minimal Psychology?

Minimal Psychology is a radically simple concept for self-help of “patients”, for psychotherapists and clinical psychiatrists who want to make “patients” helping themselves.

The concept has been and is being developed further by Johannes Faupel, Systemic Counselor in Frankfurt / Main, Germany.

The Minimal Psychology concept is based on the practical experience from clinical supervision that individuals tempt to “delete” depression, anxiety and compulsive thoughts by will power or pharmaceutics.

Though, the experience is that we strengthen what we try to avoid.

Why do we strengthen what we try to avoid?

We strengthen what we try to avoid, because the attention focuses on the unwanted.

“Energy floes where attention goes.”

Milton H. Erickson
