The eternal questions of ‘Who am I?’ ‘Why am I here?’ ‘Where am I going?’ took me on a long journey. In Psychodrama I discovered the answers are never ‘given’- but experienced. The process of stripping away the irrelevant to arrive at the core of self is both gentle and firm.
Jochen is deeply anchored in the Indian Vedantic Philosophy. And without ever being taught it, I have learnt to witness my thoughts and emotions, and let go of old patterns, allowing me to find my way ‘home’, which I live in with a greater ease.
Psychodrama is a creative way of enacting emotions in a situation – a unique way of combining therapy and drama to get clear insights into a situation.
Personally psychodrama has helped me to grow and professionally it has been helpful in reaching out to my clients in psychotherapy.
Jochen is a skilled facilitator in psychodrama and his intuition and expertise is remarkable. Klaus has brought a new way of looking at psychodrama with spontaneity and creativity and combining it with spirituality. Savita’s sessions in psychodrama kept me deeply involved in the process and she contained the group and kept us engaged throughout…very approachable person!
Psychodrama is an art form of treating a person with respect and the subtlety way of observing are the skills I learnt as of now. Insights derived for me personally with conviction was a turning point for my professional life too. Jochen is a gifted trainer in this art form. He is soul driven in teaching and does magic with clients.
I found psychodrama to be a very potent therapy method because it brings about emotional and physical (through the body) transformation which is longer lasting than analyzing and resolving only through the brain.
I am a trainer and I find myself using techniques such as sociometry, role interviews and protagonist role plays from psychodrama more often in my sessions. Personally, it has helped me resolve some issues in some of my closest relationships which I have been struggling with for years.
As a trainer, I experienced Jochen to be amazingly transparent, honest and self-aware. He is always fully present, strict when he needs to be, open about his own blocks and shortcomings, and in touch with his emotions. He serves as a great role model for me.
Psychodrama is a unique and powerful process that enables deep and profound healing and growth in individuals. It generates options for them to address problems emanating from intra-personal or inter-personal issues. It is a highly creative and spontaneous process, deceptively simple in its application. Psychodrama techniques work with almost any personal or professional situation.
Psychodrama helped me personally in enhancing my relationship with my family members. I have started applying Psychodrama principles and techniques like Sociometry, Role Interview and Doubling even with my clients. I enabled them to achieve significant growth in their personal and professional lives.
Jochen is a highly experienced Psychodrama director. He leverages a very potent combination of creativity, spontaneity, skill and technique to produce a unique and masterly performance every time, all the time. He leverages his deep knowledge of Indian mythology, scriptures and rituals to adapt very effectively to the socio-cultural context of any situation.
Psychodrama: A process that calls be to present, in the here and now! I becoming aware of my intra-inner dialogue, which helps me to better manage my interpersonal communication with people and to increase my ability to be spontaneous, authentic and congruent in how I relate to self and others.
I have noticed the Vedadrama-team members, Jochen, Klaus and Savita are at ease with each other to be transparent and vulnerable. Jochen is compelled with an urgency to be sincere and sensitive in facilitating and in creating a conducive learning environment for change to occur. He is willing to take risk to pursue his dream to fruition.
I’ve been in training with Vedadrama for two years now and it’s been amazing. I’ve worked with more cognitive frameworks in the past and I find psychodrama to be a refreshingly non-cognitive approach to understanding self. It’s playful and fun yet deep and insightful at the same time. Personally, I’ve benefited a lot from being part of the learning group.
As someone who works in the space of leadership development with corporates, I see a lot of application for psychodrama in the work I do as well as in therapy work with groups and individuals.
All the facilitators are highly accomplished at both therapy and teaching. They are committed to developing high standards of performance in their trainees and the structure of the two year course allows for skills to be built steadily. Jochen’s passion for growing psychodrama in the country is evident in every interaction with him. It’s been a joy learning with him and Klaus.
Psychodrama is a very creative way of becoming aware of the behavioral processes and life patterns that are at play in our personal and professional lives. It also helps unravel personality disposition and emotional basis of how we respond, adapt and relate in a group. As a group process, it is a safe way to find resolution to our issues in life or get access to more powerful resources within us.
Psychodrama helped me get in touch with my feelings more. The process helped me unravel many personal issues both from my own personal work and also that within the group.
Jochen is very intuitive and seasoned Director. He has this magical ability to unfold things on the stage which helps the individual and group move towards expanded awareness and resolution. He excellently models a great teacher, facilitator and a mentor. His openness, ability to be vulnerable, and warmth makes him an excellent person to be around with.
