Psychotherapy is a place to get to know yourself better, be heard and find meaning and understanding, when feeling stuck or overwhelmed. I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor offering a calm and understanding space to work both with current life problems as well as long-term mental health conditions. I have an integrative approach, combining person-centred and psychodynamic models, that help to explore both present as well as past relationships and experiences. Talking about personal issues can also feel daunting and I understand the importance of giving room to explore at your own pace in a compassionate and non-judgemental manner.
I believe in a collaborative relationship, founded on empathy, compassion and honesty, guided by an ethical framework that puts you and your wellbeing at the heart of the work.
Originally from Switzerland, I have worked and studied in several countries and am passionate about the rewards and challenges of working and living in a multi-cultural society. I offer counselling via Zoom and Telephone in English, German and Swiss-German.
Training, qualifications & experience
A fully qualified counsellor (CPCAB Dip) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I am an experienced bereavement counsellor and have worked in the NHS with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress and relational difficulties.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
