Step By Step to a More Positive  Future

Let me give you an overview on how we proceed: first you schedule an appointment online, write to me using the contact form, send me an email, or give me a call. I will get back to you by phone or email and we will schedule a first appointment, usually 60 minutes. You are also welcome to book a double session or two appointments to avoid waiting too long between the two appointments. The appointments can be canceled at no charge up to 48 hours in advance.

However, you also have the option of booking a  Power Day couples therapy in Berlin, from morning to evening, with just one small lunch break! Reasons for booking this are often greater urgency or longer travel times. A full day might be indeed very exhausting but extremely effective at the same time.

If you are not from Berlin or prefer an online session, you can learn more about Couples Therapy Online here.

I do not offer free trial sessions.

However, if you/we realize within the first half hour of the first meeting that we are not a good fit, you can cancel without any ifs or buts and at no cost. If you prefer, we can also have a 15-minute preliminary conversation over the phone. Just send me an email with your preferred times and I will call you. You can find out more about the cost of couples therapy on this page.

There is no minimum or maximum number of sessions. You decide how often and for how long you want to come. Read more about my clients' experiences with couples therapy here.

The First Meeting of therapy

During the first therapy session we will analyze the problems in your relationship.

Are the communication patterns in your relationship suboptimal?

Are you young parents and suddenly everything is completely different?

Are you caught in a never-ending dynamic of argument and can't get out of it on your own?

Or does one want more sex than the other?Does an affair even endanger the relationship?

✓ Are you having trouble communicating with each other?

It is also important to define the goals of your couples therapy. You may not always agree on them, but that's okay. They can also be interim goals that will help you take the first step forward. So in the first session we start by exploring what you want instead of what you have, where the potential for change lies. This first session is usually so transformative that by the second session, couples answer the question "How is it?" with "Better”.  We don't just want to fix the problems. We want you to be happy again. And that's a feeling, not a fact. You can read more about the first session here.

The Follow-Up Couples Therapy Sessions

You already know how to break through the dynamics of your arguments, you have some ideas about how to find your way back to each other after an affair, or how to achieve a more fulfilling sex life. Now it's time to go deeper. We find the reasons for your dynamics, the causes of your problems. We get down to the nitty-gritty and want to understand a lot. Develop a lot of empathy for your partner and yourself. I may also hold individual sessions with both (!) partners during the therapy process. We work on getting out of the negative spiral very quickly and rebuilding the emotional bank account. It is important that your relationship is strengthened and that you know how to continue working on your relationship independently after couples therapy. That is one of the most important things! Because although 70% of the time couples therapy helps a lot in solving your problems, 40% of the time after a few years you are back to where you were before. That's very frustrating and it's very important to me to prevent that.

A happy relationship is one of the greatest things in the world. Staying happy for the long term is a process that is entirely in your hands. I will show you how to achieve it.
