It's Complicated

Find a therapist practicing Schema therapy

By a schema is meant a typical pattern of feelings, thoughts, and sensations that govern behavior. These patterns are learned in childhood. Schemas serve to satisfy a person's most important psychological needs (basic needs), such as the need for secure attachments or satisfying relationships, or the need for autonomy. If the basic needs were frequently not satisfied in childhood, unfavorable schemas can develop. In the long term, they have a negative effect on the life of the person concerned and on his relationships with other people.

In schema therapy, the aim is to make the person aware of the unfavorable patterns of experience and behavior that have developed in the course of his or her life history and to change them in such a way that the person concerned can better regulate his or her feelings and behavior and satisfy his or her needs in a more favorable way. This also reduces psychological stress and psychological symptoms in the long term.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
