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.
Relationships can be one of the most rewarding and meaningful experiences in our lives, but sometimes unfortunately they do not turn out the way we expected them to, and they can then turn into a source of stress and unhappiness.
Whether you or your partner are having difficulties in your relationship, problems communicating, struggles to understand and be with each other, or just wanting to end things with as less pain as necessary, then couple therapy can be of help.
Each relationship is different, yet most of them share some common challenges or reasons for needing help. No matter how good things may be, inevitably, some challenges may arise over time, and how you and your partner deal with them makes all the difference.
Here are some general challenges and reasons that different couples decided to give couple therapy a try. See if either you or your partner relate to any of them:
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-judgmental 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.
Is there a 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 another 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.”
