My Approach

My approach is warm, authentic and relationship-led. I am most interested in the connections we make with one another and how good connections can lead to a healthier, happier life.

Psychosynthesis is a model of Transpersonal Psychology often referred to as “soul work”. It considers the spiritual nature of a person and treats by uniting all aspects of the self – emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual to heal painful histories to get back in touch with the person you truly are and to discover all that you may be.

Psychosynthesis shows us who and what we truly are. As light falling upon a bud can cause it to unfurl, the work done in a psychosynthetic context is capable of bringing remarkable and transformative change.

About Me

Hi my name is Claudia and I am a Psychotherapist with a Masters in Psychosynthesis Psychology, accredited by the UKCP.

Originally from Germany I have lived in the Uk for 20 years now.

I have a special interest and experience working with relationship- and attachment issues as well as working with highly sensitive people.

No matter what your personal struggle is psychotherapy can help you to a greater mastery of who you are and relief from your symptoms. With awareness and insight, we gain power over the feelings that once held us captive.

I have a special interest and experience working with people in the fashion, media and music industry. I specialise in relationship, attachment issues, codependence, love addiction, burn out and HSPs.

I also work with couples using Terry Real's relational life therapy.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I can help you to explore the roots of your ADHD and come to a more compassionate understanding of your symptoms. I work with mindfulness in order to help you manage those symptoms.
Depression can significantly impact on our life and prevent us from achieving our goals. We may feel lonely, hopeless and unwanted; we may have very little motivation to engage in any activity or meet with others. Physiological sensations such as constant tiredness, headache, sleep problems are also common when we feel low. Therapy can help break the vicious cycle of depressive feelings and thoughts and assist us in the development of helpful coping strategies to better manage our mood.
I frequently work with people that struggle within their personal and romantic relationships. In particular I have conducted research around codependency and love addiction which helped me to better understand the emotional, physical and spiritual impact of it. I help my clients discover and resolve the root cause of their codependency and related relationship challenges so they may live better lives and form healthy and flourishing relationships. I support clients in developing behaviours that will support their continued growth. My work with Couples is predominantly influenced by Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy. It is a therapeutic approach which aims to help partners resolve conflicts, develop personal accountability, improve communication, and foster intimacy within their relationship.
Psychosynthesis integrates spiritual as well psychological elements. It explores and supports the ways in which people harmonise various aspects of their personal self in order to grow and develop. A key assumption of psychosynthesis is that every human being has a vast potential for personal growth - a natural tendency to synthesise all aspects of their being to become the fullest realisation of themselves. Psychosynthesis is a conscious attempt to cooperate with this natural process of personal development in order to foster awareness, self-healing, and a greater connection to the ever-changing nature of human life. The therapeutic framework of psychosynthesis can help a wide range of individuals to overcome life challenges. I draw on a range of diverse techniques to guide clients through the process of self-actualisation and self-realisation. This forms an important part of therapy as it helps clients to discover a higher, spiritual level of consciousness that will facilitate positive changes and personal growth.
There can be many underlying reasons you might feel stressed. I can support you to explore and understand your feelings. so that you can find your own unique way to manage stress.
