Delightful sexuality is not an innate ability.

How we live sexuality and what we make of it is learned and can be changed throughout our lives.

I offer a space free of judgement for all aspects of sexuality, relationship, femininity and self-care in a trusting and caring environment.

Profesional and Personal Orientation

In my work I take a holistic approach and include the body, mind and soul. 

My educational and professional orientation is based on the systemic way of thinking. This means that I look at behaviour in the context of interactions with the system, i.e. the world around us.

I am convinced that, without exception, every situation can be changed and that you carry the solutions (because there is always more than just one) within you. I see it as my task to help you make them visible!

My sessions are characterized by precise questions on my part, sharing facts and scientific research findings, relaxation techniques and suggesting physical exercises to be carried out at home.

Theoretical Orientation

Sessions are interactive and in addition to the classic form of talk therapy can also include exercises with therapeutic materials (paper cards, figures, symbols).

SYSTEMIC

We look at your concerns in a broader way and see them in the context of the world around you.

SEXOCORPOREL

A holistic approach to sex therapy that also includes physical exercises.

EDUCATIONAL

I will debunk up myths and explain what facts science has to offer you.

My qualifications

I am certified systemic therapist (DGSF), systemic couples therapist (DGSF), sex counsellor (DGfS) and have further training in systemic sex therapy (IGST), couples therapy (Dr John Gottman and Dr David Schnarch),Clinical Sexology and Sexocorporel (Karoline Bischof) as well as female pleasure in sex therapy (Dr. Angelika Eck) and affairs and love triangles (Dr. David Schnarch and Dr. Ulrich Clement).

 

During my studies of social education (equivalent to social work) in Dusseldorf, I spent a few semesters in Hong Kong and also wrote my thesis about the local health care system for schizophrenic patients.

After that, I worked at international schools in Hong Kong (internship), Singapore and Shanghai until I co-founded an international family centre complete with nursery, preschool, kindergarten, and reception classes in Shanghai in 2008. I managed the international family centre for several years. 

 

Upon my return to Germany, I worked as a family therapist/counsellor, as a couple and sex therapist, and as a counsellor for sexual violence against children and teenagers. Alongside this calling I have been running my own private practice since January 2021.

 

I regularly provide workshops and training courses for professionals in education and address psychological concerns with social professions. In addition, I support students on topics of sexual education and the prevention of sexual violence against children and teenagers.
