Couple counselling

A fulfilled and happy partnership is a central condition for satisfaction, but at the same time has never been so difficult to create due to the diverse and high demands of today's world. Disappointment and dissatisfaction in the relationship often develop insidiously because of changing life situations. Whether a couple is happy in the long run depends to a large extent on their communication skills. These are learned mainly in the family of origin and are later unconsciously brought into the partnership, along with (unconscious) desires, beliefs, values and role models. Because of this, systemic therapy takes the family background into account and deals with the questions "Where do I come from?" and "What do I bring along from earlier experiences into my present system?” Systemic couple therapy and counselling enables you to get back in touch with each other. You will recognize established behavioral patterns and try out new ways of dealing with each other. Strengths and potentials in your relationship are made visible again so that you can meet your partner anew with understanding, trust, closeness and respect.

Possible concerns e.g. may be
  • "Talking past each other", improvement of communication
  • Shaping life transitions positively (e.g. becoming parents, children moving out)
  • Finding each other again, reconnecting
  • Overcoming disappointments and personal offences
  • "Always the wrong partner."
  • Extramarital relationships
  • Separation / divorce
  • Unfulfilled wish to become a parent / support through fertility treatment
  • Becoming a parent and being a parent
  • Chronic illness, depression
Intensive couples coaching
You don’t have a lot of time but still quickly want in-depth, solution-orientated support? Misunderstandings and conflicts are piling up in your relationship, feeling offended and the overall burden are increasing? You ponder as to why it seems that you cannot manage to reach each other with your concerns? You wonder when along the way you lost the respectful and appreciative communication? Whether a couple is happy in the long run depends to a large extent on their communication skills. What can couples do to experience closeness again, if problems hinder or even block their access to one another? How can couples communicate constructively again, resolve conflicts, restore mutual understanding, revive, care for, and deepen their relationship?

As a DGSF-certified couple’s therapist I offer a one-day intensive couple’s coaching. During this coaching you learn to conduct couples’ conversations in order to solve problems constructively and eye-to-eye, instead of just putting the blame on each other. Moreover, you find out how needs and feelings can be addressed appreciatively, how both of you can remain an individual and each take on responsibility to their own. Additionally, we discuss the most common mistakes made in communication processes and how misunderstandings between men and women are created.

I promise you will go home strengthened and full of helpful ideas!
