Couples counseling

Graziela Birrer Paarberatung

What is couples counseling?

Love is an important component of a solid relationship. However, it is not always enough. Many couples have difficulty talking about specific topics, healing past wounds, or identifying and respectfully communicating their individual needs. In couple counseling you will find a space of understanding and neutrality, where dialogues can be developed in a more positive way, feelings can be expressed and important topics discussed.


Anyone who is in a relationship and is looking for new perspectives to deal with existing difficulties or conflicts, wants to develop, rekindle passion, increase connection with each other or learn to communicate more positively. In couples of different nationalities, cultural differences and migration, although fascinating and enriching, can also generate difficulties, accusations and feelings of guilt and frustration. These and other topics can also be addressed during the sessions.

Graziela Birrer Paarberatung

My goal is to help couples look at their relationships and struggles in a new light, respecting their individual needs and increasing connection with each other. I accompany them so that they can activate their resources, explore possible solutions and develop new strategies to achieve the goals they have defined, thus improving the dynamics of their relationship. I work with the couple in joint sessions, alternating with individual sessions.
