Sex Counselling & Sex Therapy

The Focus on Intimacy and Body Language Communication

In my private practice approaches of emotion-focused therapy (EFT) in accordance with Prof. Les Greenberg and Prof. Rhonda Goldman and the emotion- and transference focused approach of the ISTDP (intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy) are getting integrated. The understanding of sexuality leads to a method of couples and sex therapy, that is greatly influenced and shaped by the concept of syndiastic sex therapy. Cf. Beier, Loewit, Ahlers, Pauls, 2004, Lust in Beziehung – Einführung in die syndiastische Sexualtherapie [Desire in Relationship – Introduction to Syndiastic Sex Therapy], Berlin, Springer. 

You can find more information about this couples related therapy approach, that was developed by the Institute of Sexology and Sexual Medicine in Berlin, and certified contact persons on the website of Syndiastic Sex Therapy.
