Couples and Sex Therapist
I put a high value on providing an atmosphere characterized by trust, acceptance and candor.
I am trained in Systemic Therapy, Couples Therapy and sex therapy. In the course of my work I have gathered many years’ experience in the areas of psychotherapy, counseling and crisis intervention with individuals, couples and families.
The charge for a 1 1/2 hour couples session is 150 euros. The charge for a one-hour individual session is 95 euros. The interval between the sessions is usually two to four weeks.
The basic approach I work with is known as Systemic Therapy. “Systemic” means understanding a person’s behavior as a response to that of the partner, other family members, friends and colleagues as well as their social environment. In this context Systemic Therapy reads and addresses the client’s situation and issues as well as patterns of interaction. As a systemic therapist, I am interested (1) in what happens between people – seeing a person as part of a relationship, family or network and understanding the dynamics of those relationships and (2) in what happens within a person – examining a person’s patterns of thought, behavior and perception as they function in their social environment.
In addition to Systemic Therapy, I integrate other therapeutic approaches according to the specific needs and particular issues of the individual or couple. These include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT).
