About Katharina

Hi there, I am psychodynamic and systemic sex & relationship therapist, originally from the North of Germany. I’ve completed my postgraduate training in London, North America& Berlin, and am bilingual in English and German. I work with individuals and couples from multi-diverse backgrounds, who wish to improve their sexual and relational wellbeing.

My approach to sex therapy is both psychodynamic and systemic, which means that in our sessions together we will look at elements from your past that may have contributed to how you experience your love relationships today, such as the early relationships to important persons in your life, your individual biography and the culture that surrounded you growing up. We will also explore what your sex and love life looks like today as well as your couple history and your individual and couple desires; and explore possible solutions for more fulfilling and authentic experiences that are tailored to your unique needs. In my practice, I welcome all individuals and couples, who wish to explore all issues related to sex and intimacy. These issues are:

- Navigating autonomy and interdependence in monogamous and open relationships
- Finding authentic sexual expression
- Dealing with infidelity/broken trust
- Finding new, empowered ways of handling differences in sexual desire
- Opening your relationship/living non-monogamously
- Breaking through patterns of jealousy/toxic communication
- Dealing with (body) shame
- Redefining your (sexual) identity after a separation/ heartbreak & having more fulfilling dating experiences
- Working through issues such as low desire, difficulty reaching orgasm, erectile dysfunction or painful intercourse
- Get to the roots of sexual addiction and obsession to have more sustainable sexual experiences

I consider myself to be sex-positive, differentiated and reflexive. My approach is non-stigmatising and non-pathologising, and even though the work may at times be challenging, the space that I’m offering is always kind, inclusive and open. I am currently in supervision with some of the leading clinicians in the field.
