Single Therapy & Coaching

Cross-Cultural Single Therapy

Jeder kennt schwierige Phasen in denen das Gefühl überhandnehmen kann nicht mehr alleine weiter zu kommen. Auslöser sind sowohl aufwühlende Ereignisse wie der Verlust des Arbeitsplatzes, eines nahestehenden Menschen oder der Gesundheit. Genauso gut kann der Anlass für eine Einzeltherapie das Entdecken eigener sich wiederholender und nicht zufrieden stellender Verhaltensmuster sein, die im Alltag einem „unsichtbaren Drehbuch“ zu folgen scheinen. Prägungen, Verletzungen und Glaubenssätze aus der Vergangenheit blockieren häufig die eigenen Potenziale. Durch das rückwirkende Verstehen können alte Muster losgelassen und durch neue Strategien, die der Entfaltung der persönlichen Fähigkeiten dienen, ersetzt werden. Ich bin davon überzeugt, dass jeder Mensch die Lösung bereits in sich trägt und verstehe mich als Begleiterin zu diesem inneren Wissen.

Die weltweiten Kulturen, Traditionen und deren Menschen sind ein unerschöpflicher Quell von geistigem und materiellem Reichtum. Menschen mit Zuwanderungsgeschichte sowie deren direktes Umfeld (z. B. Partner, Familie, Arbeitgeber) haben aber die Überwindung von Sprach- und Kulturbarrieren zu meistern. Diese zusätzlichen Hürden im Alltag führen häufig zu emotional belastenden Missverständnissen in der Kommunikation. Missverständnisse können Gefühle der Minderwertigkeit und Einsamkeit auslösen sowie anderes Konfliktpotenzial nach sich ziehen.

Contents of a single therapy:

  • Dealing with binationality
  • Personal conflicts with cultural values, religion or belief
  • Lack of self-confidence – insecurity, discouragement, feelings of inferiority, fears
  • Strangeness, estrangement in the majority society
  • Loneliness, difficult social contacts
  • Burnout, professional or family overload
  • Discontent in partnership or at work

Through an appreciative and free dialogue in the context of individual therapy, I see myself as a guide to a deeper benevolent understanding of personal intentions and needs. This is an important key to find a happy and self-determined way of life and to develop cross-cultural authenticity too.

The coaching includes basically the same content as individual therapy. However, it focuses on the immediate decision-making in the "here & now" and the concrete solution. For this reason, intercultural single coaching suits especially in acute crises that require immediate action, such as:

  • Conflicts in the professional environment (with superiors, colleagues, customers)
  • Fear of job loss
  • Cultural differences, discrimination
  • Career development or professional change progress
  • Acute decision-making conflicts in private life
  • Lack of or destructive communication
  • Desire to own clarity and an own position

The attitude of a successful coaching means that inner and outer freedom develop through the appreciative interaction. In addition to a solution-oriented dialogue, I support the process in individual coaching with practical exercises that sharpen self-awareness and enable an expanded view of the own situation.

"A very valuable time in which I made progress that I never thought was possible and I often rediscovered myself. Every time I look forward to "my time" anew because I know that I am strengthened and enriched by some new impulses. For myself, it is particularly important to me that nothing is put on me from the outside. Everything that we work out already exists in me and is carefully and gently awakened or brought to light in various ways. I am fascinated by the well-founded approaches – especially the systemic in its simple clarity. More and more I manage to integrate what I have learned in the therapy into my everyday life and I experience many situations with other people in a completely different way. I'm glad I took this step, none of my previous doubts have been confirmed. In conversation therapy with Satu Massaly, I found exactly the companion that my soul had wanted for a long time." German man (40 y.)
