About me

If you change Nothing....Nothing will change....CBT and EMDR are about change....changes to the way one perceives the self, others and the world/situations in general.  The way we perceive, effects the way we feel and leads often to unhelpful reactions, affecting our relationships.  If you think you could benefit from change and need some help, then I am more than happy to lend a caring hand...so contact me...

I am a qualified and registered Cognitive Behaviour Therapist and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)Therapist and am due to qualify as a Dynamic Interpersonal Therapist. I work in private practice and in the NHS and provide therapy to adults 17+ years. I have been a therapist since 2009. Prior to this I worked as a registered mental health nurse in adult psychiatry.

My areas of interest are childhood trauma and PTSD but I am also experience  working with clients who struggle with OCD, Social Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, Specific phobias, Long-term Health Conditions, Depression, Stress management, Low Self-esteem. 

I can provide CBT/EMDR in German and English and via Skype if desired. I am registered and accredited by the BABCP.

A little about me: I have been described as approachable, honest and very caring. I have over the years collected a lot of life experiences some good some not so good.

The therapy I provide is structured and very goal orientated without lacking warmth and empathy, but it is about change and teamwork, us working together for you to reach your full potential with simple strategies.

I provide therapy via online sources, teams, skype or via phone. 

To get started: Just contact me via phone or email so that we can have a quick chat and get a sense of each other and to decide if we want to work together.

If yes...then we will book the assessment appointment which will be a full hour.

From this then we can both decide if we want to meet for regular sessions or to leave it at this session

To me the quality of the relationship is the most important part of therapy. If that is not right nothing will work. Therefore contact me so that we can find out how we get along.

Further information

What is CBT? Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

What is EMDR? Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a fairly new, nontraditional type of psychotherapy. It's growing in popularity, particularly for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD often occurs after experiences such as military combat, physical assault, rape, or car accidents.
