First aid for your second chance!
There is a saying: “Relationships are bad for those who don’t have them”. So true. And the reason why I passionately do couples therapy in Berlin!
Those who have always been happily married will probably not understand your problems first hand. „My pain is your gain“, I’ve been there, and the personal interest was, more often than not, the reason to get deep into the topic. In the 90s I took the class “Love research” in psychology and it became clear: men and women have such a different way of communicating that actually they can’t be able to understand one another. But there had to be a solution: how can you do relationships in a way that it works?
For many years I worked in the business world with the topics communication and conflicts up to the executive level and finally focused on working with couples in my own practice about 10 years ago. But it is the combination of the experiences in both worlds – business and psychology- that helps me to look at things from various perspectives. I know business and I know the human soul. And – I know what it means to have time constraints when making appointments.
You can also see me regularly as a TV expert on relationship issues in German television. The topic is highly sought after by a broad audience. And for good reasons: until „relationships“ will be taught in school and the rules for a working partnership keep changing so quickly (they have changed in the past 50 years more than in the 2000 years prior to that), the world needs expert that can help out. To make your world whole again. I am here to support you too.
Yours, Birgit Fehst
