Couple – Family Therapy in Vienna

About Couple/Family Therapy in Vienna

Couples usually seek professional support for several reasons, such as emotional distance, lack of intimacy, difficulties in communication, and frequent conflicts.

The goal of therapy is to enable partners to build the unique relationship they want for themselves, improve their communication, and provide them with skills that will help them to live a satisfying life, no matter how they define it.

Couples also look for support during the difficult stage of a breakup when they feel that the way they break up makes a difference, especially if other people, such as children, are involved.

Whether you are looking for improvement in your relationship or a healthy closure, couples counseling gives you the opportunity to address difficult issues with an outside and neutral perspective, exploring the underlying emotions until you find your own solution.

An online consultation (or session) takes place via an online video call using Skype, Zoom or Whereby. We get in touch with you before the call, confirm that you are alone, and we start the session. You can imagine it as being a calm conversation with a friend where you feel comfortable to share your thoughts without the fear of being judged or misunderstood.

The sessions happen from the comfort of your own home, car or any place it would be convenient for you to have a one-on-one conversation with me – all you need is a device with a camera and a stable internet connection. Online therapy is convenient, especially during a pandemic or situation, where you can or do not want to get out of your home or comfort zone.

Therapy can be short-term or long-term – it’s a process unique to each client. The number of sessions depends on your situation and the complexity of the issues you want to resolve. I recommend having therapy for at least one month – which shall be enough to start engaging and noticing changes in your feelings and perceptions of the issue at hand. While some clients get to the desired state of their emotional well-being relatively fast, others may need ongoing support for a year or longer.

Studies suggest that online treatment is just as effective as a face-to-face alternative. For instance, a meta-analysis (Barak, Hen, Boniel-Nissim & Shapira, 2008) combining results from 92 scientific studies and 9000 clients compared traditional and internet-based therapy and found no difference in effectiveness. A growing body of research provides support for online practices as a legitimate therapeutic activity.

Generally I suggest having our sessions once a week or bimonthly. Having said this, it solemnly depends on you and what you feel you need.

Normally each of my clients I work with pays for the sum due at the end of each month. If you are in another country, and we agree on online-therapy, we will work through standard bank transfers. Details I discuss with each client individually via phone and email.

You can cancel the session up to 48 hours in advance by contacting me.

Yes! The first step is always a first short call to discuss your goals and get to know each other. Just fill out the form to the best you can, and I will get in touch with you soon.
