Appointment information

My sessions usually take 90 minutes. At first we get to know each other and you will have time to explain where your problems lie. Then we will set about taking further steps. Usually the next sessions follow in fortnightly intervals. Sometimes it makes sense to additionally arrange single sessions with each individual partner.

The Costs*

he costs of couple therapy are not covered by any health insurance. On average couple therapy involves about 10-14 sessions, but this can vary individually. The costs of couple therapy are as following:


Session couple therapy: 150 Euro
Session individual therapy:  90 Euro


* If couples therapy is not aimed at the treatment or prevention of a psychological disorder such as adjustment disorder or depression, then the treatment does not clearly fall under according to § 4 No. 14 letter a UStG and then 19 % VAT must still be added. However, since the quality of relationships has been proven to have a strong influence on our mental health (as a large number of scientific studies show), the indication for psychotherapeutic or psychopreventive intervention is given in almost all cases. Emotion-focused couples therapy is clearly a form of psychotherapy as a curative and preventive treatment (as opposed to pure counselling) because of its methodology and its effects.
