Hello! My name is Jacqueline Münch
In my work as a psychological counsellor I follow the approach that psychological suffering has its causes in one or more conflicts, that are probably lodged only in the unconsciounsness. Based on this assumption, we analyse the connection between the current mental suffering and the unconscious causes. Building a trusting relationship with my clients is the alpha and omega of retrieving and recalling the unconscious conflicts. This reciprocal trust relationship helps them to learn and subsequently cope with emotional stress and conflict issues in a different manner, that is, solve unconscious past conflicts that have led to the current psychological condition.
My previous way of life has led me from Leipzig, my hometown, to various cities and countries. After Berlin, Zurich, London and Vienna, Brussels is now my place of residence. While studying photography and art in Berlin, I discovered my interest in psychology and gained experience from working with children, which led to my later studies in social pedagogy. Being a mother of two little girls, I now put emphasis on the relationship between mother and child.
My education in psychoanalysis
My educational paths have led me through multiple stations, inter alia to the Psychoanalytischen Seminar Zürich (PSZ), an internationally recognized Swiss institute dedicated to the teachings of Freud where I have been a lecturer since 2013. I have also deepened my knowledge of psychoanalysis by obtaining the master’s degree in psychoanalytic studies at the renowned Tavistock & Portman clinic in London.
My areas of specialization in psychological consulting
Being a psychological consultant, I have three focal points: the mother-child relationship, couples relationships, and sex therapy. My education as a development consultant gave me experience in the mother-child consulting. I deepened this knowledge through subject-specific workshops. My additional specialization in couple’s relationships followed training in couple’s therapy at the IBP (institute of body psychotherapy and coaching) Zurich as well as with the American couple’s therapist David Schnarch. I am also undergoing a continuous training to become a sex therapist according to the Sexocorporel concept. Finally, I gained expertise in communication management at the Frauenseminar Bodensee.
Thanks to my specialized training and expertise as an experienced psychologist, I can advise you on the matters of the mother-child relationship and assist you in conflicts in couple’s relationships. I am also a competent contact person for any education and education-related issues that fall within the scope of social pedagogy. In this area of specialization, I rely on the knowledge gained from my studies and subject-specific workshops.
