Welcome to the official website of Ferdinand Krieg. I am theologian and Heilpraktiker beschränkt auf das Gebiet der Psychotherapie. I am educated in Systemic Therapy, with a solution-oriented approach (Certificate of the Systemische Gesellschaft, SG). Furthermore I am trained in Systemic Couple Therapy (Systemisches Institut Heidelberg, SIH) and in Systemic Sex Therapy (isiberlin / DGfS). I offer couples therapy for heterosexual as well as homosexual couples in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. And last but not least I work as sex therapist offering sex therapy for couples and individuals (singles, partners).

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 seek for solution ideas. 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.
  • Relationship counseling, marriage counseling, couple counseling (couple therapy) for English-speaking couples | or bilingual couples (English, German)
  • Couple counseling | couple therapy for lesbian couples | gay couples in Berlin.
  • Sex counseling / sex therapy for couples and individuals.

The couple counseling that I offer 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
  • sexual conflicts in relationships
  • intimacy and sexuality in a couple relationship
  • 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
  • questions from lesbian, gay and other LGBTQ* couples about sexual and couple relationships
