About me

Relational Psychotherapy

I work with people who suffer from depression, trauma, eating disorders, anxiety-related issues and those who just can't work out why they feel so unhappy, confused or helpless. I help people with obsessive and compulsive issues and work with people who face a suicidal crisis. I further have experience in working with addictions, eating disorders and psychiatric conditions such as Bi-polar, Personality Disorder and OCD.

Furthermore, I work with people who survived terrifying and brutal experiences, faced abuse and/or mental health problems and struggle to continue to live their lives. I undertake both short-term focused projects as well as longer-term work.

Further information

Over the past 15 years I have gained experience in the NHS working at the Maudsley Hospital, St Thomas Hospital and Victim Support Lambeth where I saw people in weekly one-to-one psychotherapy sessions.

In my practice I am very interested in the social and political as well as the personal reality. I believe in challenging negativity and discrimination around race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs and socio-economic background. As a German speaker living in London I bring my own personal experience and an acute awareness of how social exclusion operates on both personal and social realities.

I am a member of the IARPP (International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy) and the Relational School UK.

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.
