Dr. Birte Nachtwey
After graduating from medical school in 1993, I first became a general surgeon and specialised in surgery of the abdomen and the glands. After a while, this type of ’fast lane life’ didn’t appeal and I became more and more interested in understanding and working with people facing difficulties in life. I then trained and qualified as a psychotherapist.
After further education and training, I discovered that I enjoy helping people who encounter problems in their relationships and/or feel limited in some way, unable to fully enjoy their sexuality. My experience is that many people don’t explore and use their great potential to live a happier, more fulfilling and satisfying sex life. I find that with some work and dedication, it is possible for everybody to improve the way to enjoy oneself, own body and to enrich the relationship. So I specialised in relationship and sex therapy and have been happily working in this field since 2008 in my private practice in Germany. My love for the Scottish culture and nature brought me to finally move to the beautiful Isle of Islay in 2018 after years of spending time there during my holidays.
This broad background with its variety of methods allows me to individually tailor therapy to best meet your specific needs.
I can offer therapy in English, German and French.
