Training, qualifications & experience

I have studied and worked in the field of psychology and psychotherapy for over twenty years. Originally, I obtained a MSc in psychology from Leipzig University (Germany), which included a clinical training in cognitive-behavioural and client-centred psychotherapy. Following my move to London in 1996, I became a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, Qualified Group Analyst and Certified MBT Practitioner. I have worked in the NHS, in voluntary sector organisations and in private practice for many years providing psychological services for people with a wide range of difficulties. I specialise in mental health problems in adults, older adults and young people.

I have wide-ranging experience in working with individuals, couples, families and groups. I also offer supervision and consultation for psychologists and other mental health professionals.


I have had substantial training in the following treatment modalities:

In my practice, I integrate diverse and effective skills from these therapeutic models. The different therapeutic approaches have a good evidence base for their effectiveness and have been shown to work reliably and effectively for a wide range of psychological problems.

Valuable ingredients that I bring to my work are empathy, self-awareness, insight, clarity, spontaneity, responsiveness, directness, a great deal of life and work experience and a fair understanding of the complexities and challenges of life and our relationships in it. I have curiosity, a desire and determination to make sense of difficult life experiences and to promote growths and change in myself and others.
