Satu Marjatta Massaly
Heilpraktikerin Psychotherapie and Couple Therapist
born 1959 in Lahti, Finland
As a Finnish native, I grew up in Germany and became at home in both cultures. Above all, bilingualism has enriched my life, but also the cultural differences have shaped my personality. In 24 years of marriage and partnership – with a muslim man from Senegal – I got to know and appreciate the complexity of communication. My concern is to support couples and families in finding “their common language”, developing their potential and enriching each other. I feel particularly connected to Family Therapy according to Virginia Satir.
