Couples therapy and seminars: At the Aufwind Institute, couples can get help with relationship crises, and professionals can find seminars on couples therapy and trauma support. There is also a free page with many tips and links. Those who... subscribe to the newsletter will also receive an email series with 6 relationship tips. The special method of the Aufwind Institute is the Heron Concept. With this we determine the inner parts of the relationship dynamics. The approach of the Upwind House is a wonderful metaphor to understand the laws of relationships.
My husband and I have been working with Dr. Klees' 'Working Handbook for Couples' for quite some time now.
It offers a convincing concept with valuable information and many appealing methods suitable for everyday use. Combined with sporadic individual couple therapy sessions, in which Dr. Klees lovingly and clearly confronts and supports each of us with his/her 'blind spots', we are back on track with each other.
Thank you very much.
We will stay tuned and continue!
Katharina is a very sensitive and attentive therapist. She has an incredible talent to recognize where the problem is and always finds the appropriate means to solve this problem.
She is always interested in a good and quick solution and does not lose herself and me as a client in fruitless contemplations of the problem.
She always remains approachable and focused, even when things are difficult and threaten to become convoluted.
She has guided me through even painful processes with an admirable calmness and mindfulness.
She is very mindful of my boundaries and doesn't try anything that I don't want to do on my own.
She creates an atmosphere of trust in which I feel safe. As a result, it is easier for me to open up fully and address sensitive issues that I tend to repress.
She brought out the best in me and showed a lot of patience in the process. Thank you!!!
I find the information about couples who have grown up with "ghost train families" very informative descriptive and enlightening. I use this info and also charts very much in my sessions, also with individual clients. Thank you so much for sharing this with us like this, dear Ms. Klees and team.
I will be happy to join you again at the next opportunity.
What an important "discovery" that will allow many couples who love each other but can't find a way to live it without destroying themselves, to now have a happy future TOGETHER!
Very very valuable 🙏👏🏻👍
Dear Katharina, thank you for your free webinar. I take the complementary disorder with me Your approach is an important building block in the counseling and therapy of traumatically stressed couples.
I am looking forward to the workbook for couples. Best regards from Hamburg, Petra
Competent expertise conveyed on a human level for lay knowledge. Very effective. Definitely recommended.
I am happy to continue to stay in touch with the Aufwind Institute, especially Ms. Klees.
My partner and I will be signing up for continuing education courses.
After almost 20 years of tirelessly attending constellations, therapies, seminars and couples groups, we ended up by chance (?) with Katharina Klees, whose fantastic talk I had experienced at the bonding conference in Ulm 2018. Her concept and her wonderfully fresh sympathetic manner appealed to me immediately. Moreover, after the lecture I understood what I already knew in relation to us as individuals - the traumatic origin of our lifelong difficulties - but how complex the feedback in the relationship is and that this is repeated over and over again in the interaction, like the crack in the record, that only became clear to me through Ms. Klees' explanations!
With my husband's agreement, I promptly got an appointment for an intensive weekend. The concept of the Traum(a)haus is wonderfully simple, makes tangible, experiential and vividly clear how (and why) we are doing as a couple: depending on whether we are
- in the basement with the dragons (the monsters from childhood, where the trauma is repeated)
- with the (inner) children on the ground floor, left alone and helpless
- as adults, where we have the possibility to control ourselves
- or as a couple in heaven!
During the weekend it is again and again about why we have landed so often in the basement with our previous behavior via the built-in tube in this house and how we can stay up instead with new strategies and maybe even land more often also again in heaven, what we did not even dare to dream anymore.
The wonderfully empathetic, competent way of Mrs. Klees, who picked up each of us, led us in a structured way through the weekend and let us know and above all feel how to deal with ourselves and our partner in such a way that old hurts are not triggered again and again. The feeling barometer is a wonderful tool that I have already recommended several times and will also use in my coaching sessions - everyone can really use it!
After we came to the first appointment with the admission of a pile of broken pieces, we went home at the end of the weekend fulfilled, strengthened, connected, turned towards each other and with a bulging "toolbox" - full of confidence that there are still possibilities for us as a couple!
Thanks to Katharina Klees!
The work in trauma-sensitive couple therapy opens up connections in a simple way that can lead to conflicts in partnerships. Using the Trauma House, even lay people can be quickly and effectively introduced to the connections between traumatization in childhood and its effects on partnerships. I found Ms. Klees' clarity coupled with humor, high sensitivity and empathy for us as a couple very pleasant and helpful.
The concept of trauma-sensitive couple therapy is for me both professionally and privately a significant, practicable expansion of my competence to act in the accompaniment of couples and also in the further development of my relationship skills in my partnership. I am very grateful for the experience and professional input. It has become calm in our relationship and we have gained a basis for sorting out difficult matters as adults without leaving the field to the dragons and hurt children and constantly restaging the excesses of our childhood, hurting each other and thus distancing ourselves from each other without really being able to achieve a constructive outcome. I think that besides all the comforts of a couple relationship without escalating quarrels, this can also be an essential factor for mental health as a human being in the long run.
Thank you very much dear Katharina for the very human encounters, your patience and your appreciation in our work together.
I also wish other couples that they can find the way to this WONDERFUL work.
Working out the relationship sentence was one of the most important insights for my husband.
He suddenly behaved as if he had turned 180 degrees towards me. Surely we still have a lot to clarify, but a new path for us became visible. The structured conversation also helps a lot to bring things to a good solution without getting stuck again and again in the same points of conflict. We will probably download the online course to continue learning. In any case, a big step has been made - out of a deadlocked situation - towards new perspectives. Thank you very much for this unique help!!! :)
I experienced Ms. Klees in our Intensive as very clear, well structured and competent, she is extremely respectful, interrupts destructive patterns immediately and responds really well to the specific needs of a couple. I am very happy to recommend her to any couple who has conflicts or wants to move forward.
I just participated in the workshop Traum(a)Paare by Katharina Klees and I am really enthusiastic !!! I realize how well I can use what I learned as a couple therapist with my clients. From my point of view, the consideration of traumatic experiences in connection with the quarreling behavior of couples is an important building block for couples to stop quarreling. I work a lot with the inner child and the influence of past experiences on argument behavior. The explicit reference to underlying traumas brings additional understanding also for the quarreling couples. Ms. Klees presents her concept very clearly and also offers a lot of support and valuable working material beyond the workshop. I am grateful to have become acquainted with this approach and look forward to further impulses. Alexandra Hartmann
As a therapist, I have been working with the so-called "inner child" in an individual and couple context for many years. This method is extremely hyped by many best-selling books. However, I personally find that working with the inner child, especially on one's own, is not enough by far, and not when the "rabbit in the pepper" is buried much deeper than on the surface.
Katharina Klees' approach therefore not only makes absolute sense, but in my eyes is a must for every (couple) therapist. Especially a people that is so strongly traumatized and ignorantly "passes on" this from generation to generation needs special knowledge and support in trauma-sensitive couple therapy. So that the suffering of the many couples who come to us can again become lightness and joy.
This weekend I participated in the seminar Dream(a) Couples in Berlin. I am impressed with the very thoughtful approach of Dr. Kless. Her competence, experience and dedication to her work is immediately noticeable when she starts to explain in detail and report why she does what and when. Each intervention has a background that is very plausible and therefore convinced me of its effectiveness. With one method, I had the opportunity to experience for myself the benefits. I was so surprised. A small intervention with a profound effect. An inner curtain opened in me. This approach can be used to provide effective support and I very much hope that more seminars will be offered soon. Definitely recommended.
I am a psychotherapist and I participated in the seminar on "Dream(a) Couples" and I was very enthusiastic. Katharina presented her new concept and in a wonderful way. Exactly the part was missing in the professional world until now!!!
Content well thought out and well applicable!
I would participate again and again and also gladly in further seminars. Please keep up the good work. Thank you very much.
We arrived and could no longer talk to each other, there was no common ground, no togetherness. Dr Klees helped us to become a couple again in just 2 days. At the end of the weekend, the understanding for the other was there again, respect and a common path developed in simple steps, as well as the fun of discovering new things together and going further. I am totally convinced and enthusiastic! And we took a lot of tools home with us, so everything feels easy and doable again, gives security. I can only recommend every couple with problems to contact the Aufwind Institute, here everything is clarified in a short time with easily understandable methods. Thank you very much Dr. Klees!
