Professional help for positive change takes place with your active cooperation, of which the activation of your own resources and strengths plays an important part

It is also possible to hold sessions online.

Sometimes the boundaries between psychological counseling and psychotherapy are fluid. If you are unsure which is right for you, we can clarify this together in an initial session. As a psychotherapist, I am subject to legal confidentiality. All information is treated as strictly confidential.

It is personally important to me that your therapy plan is transparent, goal-oriented, and individually tailored to your needs. Together we will define what you would like to achieve or change in our collaborative work. For me, therapy means helping people to help themselves – I am happy to accompany you on this path.

The effectiveness of modern psychotherapy has been scientifically well proven. The aim is to increase your general quality of life and satisfaction. It is important to me that you will be able to treat yourself with compassion and thus also be able to better handle difficult situations in the future. The therapy is tailor-made for you, whereby, depending on your concerns and your wishes, different methods and strategies are combined in order to work together in a goal-oriented manner. Techniques of classical cognitive behavior therapy can be used to change thought and behavior patterns, as well as, if necessary, learning relaxation techniques and mindfulness-based exercises. I like to work with experience- and emotion-focused methods, as we often rationally know very well what the problem is or what could be done differently, but this feels different emotionally.

To begin our joint work, there is first a professional psychological evaluation – similar to a first visit with a family doctor or specialist in other medical fields.

Therapy can help you:

  • better understand a psychological problem and how it arises
  • understand feelings better (for example: fear, shame, guilt, anger) and find a more helpful way to deal with them
  • recognize personal burdens and stress factors and, if possible, reduce them
  • question previously automatic ways of thinking and behaving
  • develop more helpful behaviors
  • better understand and solve interpersonal problems
  • build up self-confidence and thereby stand up for yourself and set clear boundaries more easily
  • question perfectionism and/or reduce self-criticism
  • find the right work-life balance for you

Humans are social beings and satisfying relationships are central to our well-being. Often there are difficulties in fulfilling this desire for a bond, especially with a romantic partner. Fears of attachment, loss of trust, dissatisfaction with sexuality, different ideas about relationships and (unfulfilled) expectations of the partner can pose challenges for the couple. New phases in life (e.g. becoming parents, changed roles due to starting a family, retirement) can change relationship dynamics, and the couple has to adapt. Difficult shared experiences such as infertility or prolonged illness can also put a strain on the relationship. Couples therapy can help to clarify these issues together and to find a new way of dealing with them.

Often, however, couples only come to therapy when they have a relationship crisis. Here therapy can help to clarify whether this relationship should be continued and, if so, to re-consolidate the quality and life satisfaction in the relationship and emerge stronger from a crisis together.

Emotion-focused couples therapy can help restore closeness and mutual trust and break old, perhaps entrenched, behavior patterns. If necessary, elements from behavioral couples therapy, e.g. communication skills training, are incorporated.

A couples therapy/counseling might help you in the following situations and/or with the following goals:

  • repeated conflicts
  • communication problems: you no longer feel understood by your partner or conversations often end in arguments
  • create a positive shift in partners interactional positions and patterns
  • clarifiy the future of a relationship (separation versus commitment)
  • relationship enhancement to foster a secure and strong bond between partners

Difficult professional situations, but also life changes (e.g. after a separation, loss of a job, the transition from couple to parenthood, or a move) are common reasons for seeking psychological counseling. Furthermore, due to the increasingly high demands in our society, people often find themselves in situations where professional help can be supportive. Taken as a preventative measure, this can help ensure that your current stress does not worsen and can thus save you a lot of suffering.


Other frequent topics are personality development, in the sense of a better perception of one’s own needs, feelings, resources and possibilities, as well as, if necessary, dismantling performance and motivation blocks. Those who get to know and understand themselves better, and can thus be more compassionate with themselves, have an advantage in various life situations and can therefore improve their own quality of life and find a more self-determined way to live.

  • difficulties in motivation or decision-making
