My Approach

I am a UKCP - registered Psychotherapist with a postgraduate training in Psychoanalysis and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and a Psychologist with a Master-level degree obtained in Germany.

I also obtained a certificate as Clinical Supervisor with the Society for Analytical Psychology in London (SAP).

Additionally I did foundation courses in Systemic Family Therapy and CBT, and I have attended several training modules in trauma therapy.

I have been working as a Psychologist/Psychotherapist for more than 20 years in various clinical settings and private practice.

For most of the time I have been working for the NHS in both Primary Care (IAPT) and Secondary Care Mental Health Services and thus have a lot of experience in all kinds of mental health problems, psychological symptoms and issues, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, personality disorders, bipolar disorder, self-harm, bereavement, childhood abuse, trauma and relationship problems.

As a Supervisor I have been working with many different therapists from various professional backgrounds, and I also have experience as a training therapist for psychotherapy and counselling trainees.

My training also included the use of imaginative methods to explore and transform the inner emotional world.

About Me

If you are looking for a therapist to help you understand and manage your problems, issues or symptoms such as depression, anxiety, trauma-related symptoms, a lack of self-worth or relationship difficulties, I might be able to offer you a more in-depth understanding of your problem and some support to put the necessary changes in place to get better.

I am a psychotherapist with more than 20 years of professional experience in various areas and I am providing long-term and brief Psychotherapy and Counselling from both a Psychoanalytic/psychodynamic and a spiritual perspective.

Providing a trusting space for my clients in a co-operative therapeutic relationship is important to me.

I enjoy working with metaphors, images and dreams and like to encourage clients to tap into their own creativity during therapy.

I also offer clinical supervision from a psychodynamic perspective.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Individuals
  • Private healthcare referrals

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 am experienced in providing online therapy and consider it as a valuable alternative to face-to-face sessions, particularly during the current pandemic or for people, who struggle with travelling or would like to access therapy further away from their home.
I have a qualification as a Clinical Supervisor with the Society for Analytical Psychology, London (SAP), and I have been offering supervision to therapists of different modalities both within the NHS and in private practice for several years.
I am available and happy to offer training therapy for psychotherapy trainees in Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Therapy or Counselling, which I have already provided in the past.
