M.Sc., Trained Systemic Therapist

Marco Schaber

I am a therapist offering either a short term approach focusing on concrete solutions, or an extended therapeutic journey addressing patterns and dynamics. I have a deep understanding of the corporate world and work with expats, migrants and the LGBTQ+ community.

Therapist Marco Schaber

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

Before becoming a therapist, I pursued a multidisciplinary B.A. and M.Sc. in Business, Language, and Culture, and worked for seven years at an international agency. This experience gave me a good understanding of the corporate setting, including its corporate culture and organisational politics, while also making me aware of the potential stress and conflict inherent within. However, I wasn’t fulfilled. My fascination with the human mind and the human experience prompted me to seek further academic and professional expertise in the area of Psychotherapy in my early thirties.

Within Psychotherapy, I chose to pursue an education within systemic and solution-oriented therapy and counselling (Isi Institute in Berlin, Germany). My focus has been on working with expats, migrants and the LGBTQ+ community. Additionally, I volunteer for an organisation that supports the socially vulnerable population, who has limited or no access to the established health care system. 

My mission is to facilitate personal growth and healing in the larger world. 

SPEAKING PERSONALLY

I was the third out of four children, and grew up in rural Southern Germany. My home was marked by the close family ties and the traditional values of the 80s. In my adolescence I realised I was gay, which forced me to stretch the reality I was born into. The world around me felt too small, without the space for being different. I sought to emancipate myself from certain conventions, a catholic upbringing and heteronormativity. What followed was a journey of self-discovery, of exploring diversity and cultures, and of attempting to find my place in the world. 

I speak German, English, Spanish, and Portuguese and have lived for longer periods of time in Spain, Portugal, China, Sri Lanka, France and since 2015, in Denmark. 

HOW I WORK AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Systemic therapy focuses on empowering you by leveraging your strengths and resources. Together, we’ll uncover new possibilities and solutions to deal with your struggles. Systemic thinking seeks to integrate societal, familial, interpersonal and intrapersonal dynamics, thus in our sessions we will explore relevant systems such as relationships, family (both chosen and of origin), work environment, social structures, internalised thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.  

Therapy can be understood as a facilitation of personal growth in which you will experience and become aware of aspects of yourself. The goal is to be more self-directing, self-effective and self-confident; to become more your own person, more understanding, more accepting of yourself and others and, ultimately, able to cope with challenges more adequately and more comfortably. 

WHAT I OFFER

I offer systemic counselling (1-10 sessions) with a focus on problems of the here and now. This short-term approach will support you in the implementation of concrete solutions and your goals. 

I also offer systemic therapy, which usually takes more time while integrating several topics and more complex problems. In this approach, we’ll widen the perspective from a specific issue to the patterns and dynamics within the different relevant systems in which you operate. 

My focus: 

  • LGBTQ+
  • Expat and migrant lives 
  • Identity exploration 
  • Low self-esteem 
  • Low mood / lack of finding enjoyment in life 
  • Relationship conflicts  
  • Work related stress including corporate conflicts  
  • Anxiety and worry
