Introducing Franziska Petersohn, a Psychotherapist Based in Germany

Franziska is a psychologist and psychotherapist from Germany. She offers online counselling in German and English to people who are struggling with their emotional wellbeing.

Why did Franziska want to become a remote psychologist?

Living between two cities was a major motivation for becoming location independent for Franziska. She spent many hours driving from city to city, but there came a point when she wanted to cut down on travelling back and forth.

Who does Franziska work with as a remote psychologist?

In her work, Franziska specialises in clients with depression and anxiety. She is experienced in a wide range of therapeutic skills including CBT and ACT.

Another way Franziska supports her clients is by introducing them to the world of nonviolent communication. Here, they will learn how to communicate in a respectful and productive way with partners, children, parents, friends, or co-workers.

Where does Franziska see her future now she’s working as a remote psychologist?

Currently, Franziska enjoys her location independent lifestyle in Germany. It gives her the freedom to work from either city and take road trips around Europe.

But in the far future, Franziska would like to work from all over the world while continuing to offer online counselling. She is in the process of building a campervan and would like to be able to work on the road. We can’t wait to see where your future takes you, Franziska!

Would you benefit from the LIT Community?

If you watched the interview, you saw Franziska say how supportive and helpful she found the LIT Community. This is our dedicated community for location independent therapists around the world.
