Psychotherapy in Vienna


to my private practice in the 7th district of Vienna. As a systemic family therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families.

Please note that I am not a native speaker, However, I am fluent in English, having lived in New York and travelled extensively over the years to the U.K. In my practice, I will provide a comfortable and safe environment for you, meeting you at eye level with an unconditional positive regard.   


If you

...are unhappy with your life

...want to change unhelpful feelings about yourself

...are in a crisis

...have issues in your relationship that need resolving

...have conflicts in your family that need attention

General Information

I work as a psychotherapist in the 7th district close to Mariahilferstraße. It is a 5 minute walk form U3 Neubaugasse. My practice is in an old build offering a light and airy space.

First session

The first part of your psychotherapy session is to get to know one another. As I will need to understand why you are seeking therapy I will ask you about your needs, issues & problems and how you took care of your mental health in the past. We will talk about your current situation and your goals. At the end we are going to talk about conditions and costs. 


Individual therapy        €  110  (50 Minuten) 

Couple therapy             €  200  (90 Minuten) 

Family therapy             €  200  (90 Minuten)

According to  § 6 Abs. 1 Z 19 UStG  psychotherapeutic treatment is excluded from value added tax. 

The fees include treatment, pre- and post-processing, copies and information material. For the first session the fee is payable in cash and afterwards the fees can be transferred. You will receive an invoice after each session. 


Usually I work on a weekly or biweekly basis with individuals, couples and families. In regards to the length of a therapy my motto is "as short as possible and as long as necessary". Some issues take a few sessions and other concerns need a longer therapy process.

A partial refund through the health insurance is possible.

ÖGK: 33.70 Euro

SVS: 46.60 Euro

In case you have a private health insurance, please check the conditions of your insurance company, as some of them offer full coverage for psychotherapy. Unfortunately, the health insurance does not cover any costs for couple therapy.

Psychotherapeutic sessions underly legal & professional discretion laws (Law of psychotherapy - Psychotherapiegesetz § 15) and are essential in my field of work. 


About me

Connecting with people and trying to understand their world was always important to me. I have worked over 15 years as a counsellor, life coach, supervisior and trainer, helping indivduals, couples and groups with their personal or professional issues. Becoming a psychotherapist in training under supervision enables me to extend my scope of work. 

Psychotherapy can help you to explore other ways of thinking, feeling and how you see yourself. As a family therapist I work solution oriented, taking enough time to understand your current situation. I work with all age groups, regardless of their sexual orientation and cultural background. 

My mindset as a therapist is meeting you at eye level, in an open, curious and respectful way. With this mindset I would like to accompany you on your journey to getting to know yourself better and taking a step on your path. 


As learning and personal development is also part of my journey I am attending courses, self-awareness sessions and supervision on a regular basis.  

I would like you to feel safe, comfortable and well taken care of.

Kind regards

Pia Nussbaum
