About me

About me and my clinical work

I am specialised in seeing couples and individuals who struggle either with the relationship they are currently in, they are trying to build or they are thinking of leaving. These struggles can be manifold, but may include reoccurring arguments, lack of trust and commitment, affairs, loss of love and sexual desire.

I look at psychotherapy as a process of self-exploration that aims to gain a better understanding of all the things that are stressful and difficult to manage with the view to establish long-term changes of people's reaction and behaviour that in turn can improve not only their relationships but at the same time their overall well-being.

I see a wide range of people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, covering straight and gay couples and individuals.

I offer therapy in English and German.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling) and abide by the BACP code of ethics.

How to get started?

Please send an email or call to arrange an initial meeting. The aim of the first meeting is to discuss your situation and think together about the best way forward. It is also an opportunity for getting a feel of how I work and clarifying any questions you may have.

Training, qualifications & experience

I did my training as a psychodynamic individual and couple relationship psychotherapist at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR). I currently see clients in private practice as well as a visiting clinician at the Tavistock.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
