At my work with (intercultural) couples, I frequently use mediation as a useful tool. At the mediation we try to uncover the interests and needs behind the conflict and reach a compromise on that basis. 


Both my personal and professional experience have teached me that most of the (intercultural) conflicts have an origin in a misunderstanding of the hierarchy of personal values. 



Besides, I use tools coming from Gestalt Therapy and the systemic approach. Important pillars in the sessions are the loving story, intimacy, sense of the couple. We also reflect about the interpretation of male and female roles and how they apply into your relationship.
