Couples Therapy

International English Psychotherapy Vienna

Only love expands intelligence. To live in love is to accept the other and the conditions of his or her existence as a source of richness, not as opposition, restriction or limitation.

Couples Therapy 101 - Information for You

If you and your partner find yourself going through a difficult time in your relationship, then therapy can be an opportunity for the both of you to come to a place of understanding and problem solving. Difficulties and challenges in a relationship are inevitable due to our dynamic personalities and the complexities of getting to know each other over the course of time. This however is normal and through Psychotherapy, we can create a space for both you and your partner in which you can feel heard and fully express what it is that is challenging you. In this way you can truly feel heard and acknowledged. Relationships are as unique as the people who are in it, but usually there are some common challenges and problems we eventually tend to have. Do any of these sound familiar to you or your partner?

  • Infidelity, jealousy and trust issues
  • Mood swings, anger Issues
  • Romance and sexuality
  • Infidelity and Jelousy
  • Family planning and raising children
  • Expectations for the future
  • Time managment issues
  • Financial problems
  • Communication problems
  • Not feeling understood, relating issues.
  • Cultural or Religious differences in international couples.
  • And many more

If you or your partner relate with any of the issues mentioned above, or whether you would bring your own unique challenge and reason for therapy, then i welcome you to give our work together a try.

My aim for our work together and what i can offer in our therapy sessions, is an unbiased, non-judgemental and cooperative environment that can suit as best as possible to each of your personal needs.  My background in systemic family therapy is particularly suited and experienced in dealing with families and relationships of different kinds, and its main focus is to discover resources that can help all the people involved.

When is the right time to start ?

There is never a right or wrong moment to start therapy. It does not matter whether you have been together since shortly, or have been with one onther for many years. If you feel that the current state of your relationship is causing distress and reducing your everyday quality of life, or simply that it is not how you or your partner would want it to be, then this would be a clear sign to try Psychotherapy.

Even if it is about separation, we can work together in making it as less painful as possible and to reach a good conclusion for both parties.

Which Couples are suited for psychotherapy?

I welcome couples of every age, sexual orientation and gender to come work with me. As an Expat living in Vienna myself, i have personal and professional experience of working with International Couples who have different cultures, languages, religions etc.

 

“I want to love you without clutching, appreciate you without judging, join you without invading, invite you without demanding, leave you without guilt, criticize you without blaming, and help you without insulting. If I can have the same from you, then we can truly meet and enrich each other.”
