Psychotherapy & Counselling

Sometimes in life we get into situations that are just too overwhelming to cope with them on our own. And we might feel like there is no way out of this misery. But there is a way.In my therapy sessions I focus on talk therapy with the solution focused brief therapy approach. If the client agrees, I like to complement my therapy sessions with other therapeutic methods when appropriate.

Couples & Sexual Therapy

Difficult episodes in a relationship can arise due to numerous reasons. Every couple is different and every story unique. But since these hardships can be a challenging task to overcome, it often proves helpful to seek an external view on the situation through couples counselling. For couples struggling with their sex life I offer sexual therapy as well.

Sessions will be held with both partners, but if desired, individual sessions with each partner can be included as a part of the therapy path.

eTherapy & eCounselling

Global – convenient – easy access!

Individual therapy or couples counselling sessions held in the comfort of your home. Sounds good? Then eTherapy or eCounselling might be for you. All you need is a working internet connection, a quiet place where you feel comfortable and a Skype account. If Skype doesn’t work for you, eMail counselling is another option.

introducing myself


Marita Helkimo-Hauser

alternative practitioner for psychotherapy

I am Marita Helkimo-Hauser, independent Psyshrink therapist at my private practice in „Praxis am Rosengarten“ in Bornheim, Frankfurt am Main.

Originally from Finland, I have spent many years living abroad, during which I was able to get insights into different cultures and learn various languages. The different stops on my life’s journey have been Austria, Poland, Russia and now Germany. Therefore, my personal experience as an expat allows me to better understand the difficulties that my clients undergo when living and working in a foreign country.

Besides German, I speak English and Finnish and can also communicate fluently in Swedish language. Having spent many years in Eastern Europe, I learned a little Polish and Russian as well.

Those therapists taking part in the initiative are marked by an icon displaying the logo of “Soziales Honorar”.
