I am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist, offering integrative therapy in a peaceful space conveniently located near London Bridge as well as in Brixton. I have practiced as a therapist primary care as well in the charitable sector for many years, which has included working with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems, and addictions. I offer therapy in English and German language.
When Therapy Can Help
Therapy can be the gateway to living your life more fully and connecting more deeply with yourself and others.
Whether there is something missing in your life or some loss of direction, therapy can help you regain your sense of balance and discover new perspectives, with the fresh eyes of awareness.
What You Can Expect
Whether you wish to look at a current issue or something more deeply-rooted, I offer a secure and confidential space where you can be heard and listened to.
The therapeutic relationship is at the core of my work. This mutual encounter can create a sense of trust, safety, and shared curiosity between us, and become a holding space for your authenticity. When the unfolding of your therapeutic process happens at your pace, new insights can safely be expressed and integrated.
I offer both short-term and open-ended therapy with individuals, couples, and small groups. I regard a "couple" in its wider sense and welcome two relationship partners as much as family members, friends, and work colleagues. I practice counselling and mediation, whereby I hold the space for you to become the experts of your own interpersonal problems.
What is Integrative Psychotherapy?
Integrative counselling and psychotherapy is a unique therapeutic approach based on contemporary research and teaching methods.
My integrative approach is based on psychoanalytic and humanistic ideas. I combine components of attachment theory, Gestalt, and relational psychotherapy. I also lean on mindfulness therapies (including MBCT for stress relief, depression and addictions).
Furthermore, I am curious about the role of the body as part of psychological healing. Neuroscientific research has shown a significant link between the mind and body in emotion regulation and the healing of trauma. When we are able to “think with our body”, i.e. to draw on the wisdom of our own embodied experience, we can feel more centered in ourselves and connected in relationships. I may include aspects of body psychotherapy to foster this process.
I am interested in issues of belonging in a multi-cultural society and work in English and German language.
Where do I go from here?
Please feel to telephone me if you want to know more or to see if I can help. The first session will provide the space for you to explore your options and get a sense of my way of working. If you wish to commence therapy, you may start with just a few sessions or a block of 12 as a good grounding. You may then complete or wish to deepen your exploration with a more open-ended process. Whatever you decide, we will regularly review this together as your process unfolds.
