We are a couple since 1998 and we are living with two wonderful daughters near Linz.
Like all couples and families, we have (had) many wonderful moments together but we have also been through difficult times where we felt miserable. Dark times of frustration, misconception, resignation, trauma and powerstruggles were the consequences.
We have experienced for ourselves, that a period of crisis always enables growth within ourselves and within our relationship, if we take the challenge to tackle the dragons within. By mastering a crisis together we enable ourselves to discover, live and develop our own potential and the potential of our relationship.
Mag. Elisabeth Gatt-IroBorn in 1967, living and working in Linz. After having read the works of Sigmund Freud and later Wilhelm Reich in my youth, my interest in (body-oriented) psychotherapy and psychology were determined.
Fascinated by Reich’s focus on liveliness and convinced by the body’s influence on it, I started a body-oriented psychotherapy training during my studies of psychology at the University of Vienna, followed by a training for group dynamics.
After many years of learning and working as a pschotherapist, coach and supervisor in free practise, I came across couples therapy (Imago) in 2002, due to my relationship-challenge with Stefan. This method has convinced me on a private level as well as on a professional one. It has essentially enriched my work since then.
Mag. Dr. Stefan Gatt
Born in 1970, grew up in Tirol, living in Linz since 1998.
During my studies of sports-science and sports-management I discovered my professional passion: process- and goal-oriented facilitation of groups. My area of expertise is the development of teams and businessleaders. For my work Positive Psychology and Imago techniques became an important addition throughout the last years.
I am grateful that I can give parts of my workshops at places where I feel at ease: in nature, wilderness and on the mountains. For me as a coach it is important, to make connections, blockades, patterns and interactions transparent and understandable. I love to challenge and encourage my participants. Therefore curiosity, courage and enthusiasm are essential in my work.
Experiencing and facing the challenges in our relationship is exciting and satisfying at the same time. Shaping the relationship with Elisabeth and our daughters allows me to feel deep connection & love. This belongs to my priorities in life.
