“When we are no more able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves”  –  Viktor E. Frankl, Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist 1905-1997.

If you feel that you have problems coping with everyday life and you feel that you can’t deal with it on your own any more, it could be good for you to try psychological counselling.

Life Coaching  in form of Psychological Counselling

I offer various options for counselling and coaching for adults as well as children and adolescents to best meet my customers’ individual needs. Life Coaching (in Austria Lebens- und Sozilaberatung) is counselling for individuals, couples and families in every day life challenges. Life coaching is not therapy for individuals with mental health disorder.

   Individual Life Counselling

Sometimes in life we get into situations that are just too overwhelming to cope with them on our own. And we might feel like there is no way out of this misery. But there is a way. Let’s find it together.

In my counseling sessions, I prioritize a talk-based approach, particularly emphasizing the solution-focused method. If the client is open to it, I also integrate additional counseling techniques as needed.

There is a student discount available for psychological counselling.

  Couples counselling  & Sexual questions

Difficult episodes in a relationship can arise due to numerous reasons. Every couple is different and every story unique. But since these hardships can be a challenging task to overcome, it often proves helpful to seek an external view on the situation through couples counselling. For couples struggling with their sex life I offer counselling  in from of talk as well.

Sessions will be held with both partners, but if desired, individual sessions with each partner can be included as a part of the counselling  path.
