About me

Sessions cost 40£ for individuals and 50£ for couples. a lower fee can be negotiated for students and people with low income.

I grew up in Germany but completed all my training in England. I am living in Leeds for 11 years and understand the British culture.

Clients comment that they find me easy to talk to and that they appreciate my sensitive empathy and my ability to help them focus at points when they are diverting and avoiding issues. This helps them to see changes within a short period of time. My 'straight to the point' and no 'beating about the bush' attitude will challenge you to be reflecting on yourself. You will find coping strategies and make positive changes in all aspects of your life.

I offer evening and weekend sessions as well as early and late sessions to suit your busy life.

It has always been my dream to become a counsellor. Since qualifying it has been amazing to be part of the personal transformation people go through from a time of distress to finding the strength to live the life they want.

Most people go through times where they feel stuck, feel they do not 'fit in', cannot get anything right, are anxious, depressed, struggle to make decisions or are unhappy in a job or a relationship.

If you are going through a time like this, my affordable one-to-one service can help you to make a change in your life.

As a person-centred counsellor I work with you on your issues and help you to find ways of dealing with your problems. Inside you, you do have the solutions to your own problems. You just find it difficult to see them at present.

I work to bring about positive change in your live – changes in your emotional outlook, changes in your relationships, both social and intimate – so you can move beyond immediate or longer term issues towards well-being and fulfilment.

I can also offer counselling in German.

I AM WORKING FROM BATLEY/BIRSTALL (SEE ADDRESS ABOVE) AND LEEDS CITY CENTRE.
