Accompanying Clients on their Way to Consensual Non-Monogamy

My approach differs from a stringent traditionalist work attitude as I very clearly support my clients for wanting “a relationship and love outside the box” and do not judge them for it.
To me an alternative sexual mindset is an asset rather than a liability. Working as a certified psychotherapist since 2013 I decided to specialize in the field of Consensual Non-Monogamy and to support people on their journey to a fulfilling life containing relationships of their own choosing and make up.
Why is this important?
Even though we live in a very open minded society, it seems not yet socially acceptable to choose a non-traditionalist love life and to talk about it even, or especially, in a professional client-therapist relationship.
Many of my clients reported that it was previously hard for them to engage in a poly-friendly dialogue with a psychotherapist. They were faced with rejection, prejudice and judgement, or were told there is something “wrong” with them.
So I quickly understood that there is a big demand for a non-monogamous work ethic in the field of psychotherapy – to share and hold a space for all of our emotions and feelings according to our non-monogamous desires.
This mindset can be both amazing and crucial for oneself, and I know it takes a lot of courage to go your own way and follow your passion. Thus accompanying people on their way to a consensual non-monogamous way of life within a relationship is really a matter truly dear to my heart.
For my talk I chose to share my personal experiences with you and I will give you some insight into my practical work. So let’s talk about it!
