Welcome in the Counseling Center Bangkok + Pattaya, Thailand!
My name is Richard L. Fellner, I'm a psychotherapist, sex therapist and couple therapist since nearly 25 years by now - - mainly in my Practice in Vienna, but also occasionally in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand - in Vietnam I've shortly been working at an international emergency clinic, in Thailand in my very own practice.
My work in South East Asis usually focuses mainly on supporting expats with psychological issues related to their work abroad (job-related issues, relationship issues, depression, burnout, problems related to abuse of drugs or alcohol, sexual issues, psychosomatic disorders etc.), but also intensive care for international travelers, also of Europeans, Americans or Australians living or traveling abroad who want to 'recharge their batteries' during their vacation or long-term stay abroad. Quite many clients/patients want to finally face and fight their issues here in Asia - a process for which tehy don't have enough time or focus back home, some also enjoy the unbeatable level of confidentiality (or the more affordable fees ;-)) when arranging a series of consultations abroad.
On this page you can find an overview of my services here in the Counseling Center; more detailed information on psychotherapy, counseling, couple therapy etc. you can find in the menu at the top of each page of my website.
Psychotherapy / Single Sessions
"Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality." (Erich Fromm)
If you feel that your own resources aren't sufficient to deal with any longer, psychotherapy might help. Traditionally, psychotherapy deals with psychological and mental problems, but is increasingly seen as a practicable and modern way to deal with challenges and occasional life crises.
The best improvements are seen when the client comes to the decision to start psychotherapy on his/her own, and when he/she participates actively and regularly in the sessions that both, he/she and the therapist, have agreed upon.
On special request, I can also offer psychotherapeutic diagnosis or psychotherapeutic reports.
Couple Therapy, Relationship / Marriage Guidance
"In a world becoming more and more artificial and impersonal, the value of healthy interpersonal relationships increases. We should avoid being forced into the thought «What happened to love?» one day."
Couples find themselves under enormous pressure and challenges these days: career vs. private life,
sexuality, fidelity, children growing up, questions of upbringing, financial issues and many more all have
to be solved on a mutual basis. High pressure in daily life causes the crises to develop which can culminate in a breakup or divorce.
Even without acute crises, many people can't avoid asking themselves:"how can I bring more energy, more emotions back into our relationship?" or"should I break up with him/her now?"..
In a therapy session (with you alone or together with your partner, moderated) we can look for solutions that suit you both. Such a solution wonn't necessarily result in a 'Happy Ending', but can also lead to a new start: a future with new plans and perspectives. Sometimes, there's just a wish to achieve more clarity about a confused and chaotic situation.Relationship Counseling info
Sex Therapy / Sexual Counseling
"Experiencing the body with relish boosts self-confidence and improves quality of life.
Everyone should be able to experience that." (Source: Alphanova.at)
While at the expert level there is no clear consensus as to which categories of sexuality should be rated as 'disorders', in real life it is sufficient to be unhappy with one's own sex life to 'justify' at least considering sexual counseling. After a professional diagnosis is usually possible
to receive first advice or recommendations for further treatment.
Sex therapy / sexual counseling is possible in an individual or in a pair context.
Clinical Hypnotherapy / Hypnosis
depression - establishing self assurance and self esteem - somatoform disorders - psychosomatic disorders - functional disorders with psychological causes - enuresis - encopresis - pain treatment with pain of all kinds - nightmares - problems with boundaries - anxiety / phobias - improvement of constitution particularly with allergies, asthma, skin diseases - heart-throb and heart disorders of all kinds - respiratory distress • guidance for learning self hypnosis
Children and Teenagers
We spend almost one fifth of our lifetime as children and teenagers - from our own experience we are all aware of the ups and downs that occur during this time. There are times when the downs can develop into serious crises, straining the family's life as a whole - each member of the family in his/her own way. The most common problems are school-related problems, obtrusive behaviour ('behavioral disorders'), learning disabilities, communication problems, drug abuse, involvement in sects and eating disorders. For single parents it's especially challenging to resolve these issues..
An introductory discussion helps to clarify the first steps possible and/or required to resolve the difficulties, regular psychotherapy or counselling sessions are possible as well.

First Advice Service
I offer one free consultation by e-mail. This service aims to give you an initial idea about what might help you in your current situation and which institutions, help centers or therapists/doctors/.. might be available in your area to help you most effectively in tackling your problem. Basically I try to suggest you at least 2 or 3 options so that you can choose the one you feel most comfortable with.
More information can be found on my First Advice Service page.
Online Counseling / Online Guidance / Online Advice
I offer Counseling (no Psychotherapy!) by email, phone or chat.
The advantage of online counseling for those that need it but can't leave their home is obvious, but please note that this service can not be seen as a replacement for psychotherapy, couple therapy or similar forms of treatment. Keeping that in mind, I offer online counselling only under certain conditions (read more).
