My name is Christian Falkenstein and I am a psychotherapist from Germany. I am currently on assignment with Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Belarus.
Since the end of October, I have been working as a team leader at a tuberculosis (TB) project in Minsk.
After completing my psychology studies, I worked for almost 15 years as an HR manager and a manager in large companies. However, In 2012 I found my new purpose in psychotherapy. More by chance, I specialised in working with patients suffering from addiction as part of my training as a certified psychotherapist.
A big motivation during my education was the desire to work for MSF and to make a difference both professionally and personally.
After I was approved in spring 2018, I could finally start!
