About me

As an integrative relational therapist, I work with those who feel stuck and are looking to move forward, from entrenched patterns or from loss and trauma. Psychological issues can be very confusing, distressing and isolating. The safe and confidential space of a therapy relationship can help us rediscover a sense of joy and creativity as well as connection.

I work with people suffering from a range of issues, including depression, be it a sense that something is "not quite right" or deep hopelessness; with clients who experience loneliness; with those who find it difficult to move on from grief and loss; with clients experiencing anxiety, including existential anxiety; with LGBTQ+ clients as well as anyone grappling with issues around their sexuality and gender; with neurodiverse clients.

It can be hard to find the right therapist, or to even know what you are looking for. Contact me by phone or email to arrange a brief (15-20 minute) phone call. You can let me know more what you are looking for and also ask me questions, and we can see about availability. You can then decide whether you would like to book an introductory session, and then we can see whether you want to continue working with me in weekly sessions, maybe after comparing introductory sessions with different therapists.

Further information

My work is integrative, meaning I offer you space to talk and non-judgmental reflective presence as well as specific techniques such as IFS (internal family systems), a somatosensory approach, and EFT (emotion focussed therapy). My therapy style is both listening and emotionally engaged.

Besides private practice, I have worked for the NHS at the Talking Therapies Southwark/ Maudsley as well as for the counselling service at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

I am a trained research psychologist (PhD) and have previously worked in applied and academic research, and so I bring a good awareness of the research evidence around therapy effectiveness as well as a stance of exploration and curiosity that I hope to share with you.

In 2017 I qualified as a teacher of the Alexander Technique (ATI), which gave me a completely different, embodied access to knowledge as well as an active approach to mindfulness.

I'm originally from Germany and since 2002 have lived in different countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, and I have now returned to London after two years in Germany. This gives me an awareness of the practical and psychological issues faced by expats and repats, and anyone straddling different cultures.
