The systemic point of view is a fundamental principle of my counseling for straight, lesbian, gay couples and individual persons. It focuses the social system „partnership“ or „family“ as an entire structure of interactions and communication, rather than focussing individual guilt and failure of an individual member of the social system. I am interested in analyzing, understanding and asking behind the actual reason of the negativ interacting and communicating within a social system.

My job is to give impulses and moderate the sessions, the clients job is to work out the solution. I want to encourage couples to try something different and new, to change their verbal and non-verbal communication within their relationship.

My counseling offer comprises:

  • Counseling for singles and individual partners.
  • Counseling for divorced and separated ex-partners and ex-couples.
  • Systemic relationship counseling, marriage counseling, couple counseling (couple therapy) for English-speaking couples | or bilingual couples (English, German)
  • Systemic couple counseling | couple therapy for lesbian couples | gay couples in Berlin.

My couple counseling is not ment to replace a regular psychotherapy or psychiatric treatment. My offers in english (e.g. marriage counseling /-therapy, couple counseling/-therapy) is no psychotherapy, but a counseling for persons facing social conflicts such as controversial family or partnership issues.

Typical couple counseling topics:

  •  a lack of communication
  •  dysfunctional communication
  •  emotional and sexual cheating
  •  affairs and other secret relationships
  •  planing or having an open relationship or polyamory-relationship
  •  mistrust and trust among partners
  •  fights and rivalry between partners
  •  thoughts about separation and first separation steps
  •  patchwork and family problems
  •  gay and lesbian partnership issues
