Copyright, Links etc.:

Texts, Images and Layout on and are subject to worldwide copyright (except if partial other copyrights are mentioned near the bottom of the page in question). Unauthorized use or reproduction of parts or the complete content of pages - be it regarding content, layout or by using website-specific graphics, requires explicit authorization by the website owner. Violations of copyrights will be subject to legal action.

Consequently, I am also very careful to respect the copyright of other authors, photographers etc., so I generally add copyright information to all parts of my website not created by myself. However, if anyone finds 3rd party content with incorrect, outdated or missing credits or copyright information (which may happen in parts of the website that are user-editable, like in the blog or forum) please let me know and I'll make sure those parts are either removed or correctly attributed right away.

Feel free to link to all pages stored on this website. You may also print them for personal use. Reprints for 3rd parties or reproduction in any form (to be used on websites, in articles etc.) require my excplicit agreement given by email or postal mail.

Goal of this website is information about Psychtherapy, professional psychotherapeutic methods and indications for psychotherapy.

Links on this website should be seen as a starting point for further information about certain topics related to Psychotherapy. This is a service offer, which doesn't mean that the website owner, Richard L. Fellner, agrees with their content. Because contents of linked websites can't be controlled by me, I decline any responsibility for them or the pages they are linking to.

Exclusion of liability

The operator of this website tries to provide public access to topical and exact information on psychotherapy, counseling and his other fields of activity. He will attempt to correct errors or mistakes of which he is informed.
No informations or services provided by this website should be understood as psychotherapy (or as a replacement for a psychotherapeutic or counseling process undergone in real life). The operator of this website assumes no responsibility or liability for the information on this website, as a) most of its information is only of general nature without any reference to specific persons or institutions; b) not necessarily comprehensive, complete, exact, or topical; c) sometimes linked to external websites that the operator cannot influence and for which he is not responsible; d) no accurate professional advice is possible over the Internet (should you need special advice, always consult an expert or a person well acquainted with the specific topic in 'real life') and e) parts of this website are submissions by 3rd parties which are primarly private persons not professionally trained.
The operator wishes to minimise disturbances caused by technical problems. Nevertheless he cannot rule out that some of the data and information on this website is not stored/structured in error-free files or formats and he cannot guarantee that the services offered here will not be interrupted or otherwise affected by disturbances, nor can he be held liable for such. As a result, the operator assumes no responsibility or liability for damage resulting from incorrect or misinterpreted contents, for damage caused by data transmission, privacy or security issues or actions done out of trust in the accuracy of the content published on this website.

Exclusion of liability for service offers:
I'm convinced that Psychotherapy over the Internet is not effective - or just to a very limited extent. Counseling over the Internet can be effective, but also in a relatively limited way, compared to 'face to face' communication. As a result, the range of services offered on this website should just be seen as a noncommittal offer which I can just provide according to the time available after your submissions have been received (which is not necessarily right after but can as well be weeks or even months later).
Consequently, I can't guarantee the reception or the safety of your electronic inquiries, and especially no timely response.

You are strongly advised to immediately establish personal contact to a Psychotherapist if you feel under extreme pressure or in other emergency cases - Services like the ones offered on this website can just provide complementary support, but not replace professional Psychotherapy / Counseling!

Liabilities of clients / Cancellation Policy

As a professional psychotherapist, I feel obliged to support you to my best abilities and by applying the latest expert knowledge. Pretty much the only obligation of the clients is: to keep up with agreed upon appointments and treatment plans. Consequently, I ask you to kindly cancel or postpone agreed upon appointments up to 48 hours in advance by phone, voicebox message, SMS text or by email if you can't adhere to them, which allows me to make sensible use of my limited time. Please understand that appointments cancelled less than 24 hours in advance will still be billed.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or uncertainties regarding the information given on this page.
