Wilfried Nelles (Dr. Phil., M.A.), together with his son Malte, runs the Nelles Institute of Phenomenological Psychology and Integration of Life in Nettersheim-Marmagen / Eifel.
There are currently Nelles Institutes in Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Romania and China, which are administered independently by alumni in close coordination with the parent institute in Marmagen.
From 2000 to 2006, Wilfried Nelles worked closely with Bert Hellinger and, among others, together with Heinrich Breuer led the international congresses of 2005 and 2007 in Cologne. He wrote 18 books that were translated into ten languages.
Psychology as a human response to the realities of life
Life is an autonomous process. It is not the individual who is autonomous (that is, Corona has just shown, just a modern desire), but life itself is autonomous. It appears on its own, follows its own path and ends on its own, being different for everyone and, at the same time, following a certain pattern, a general form. Human suffering arises when we want to escape from this pattern and fight it with our stubbornness (in the modern diction: our life plan).
For psychology, therapy and counseling, this means that if they really want to alleviate suffering, they need to focus on life and their circumstances, rather than the wishes (attachments) of clients.
With his model of “Life and its levels of consciousness”, Wilfried Nelles has developed a framework that can serve as guidance. He will present this structure and give ideas about practical work with it.
