I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore what is going on for you, making sense of it all and finding your best way forward. You will choose the topics you want to talk about, and I will help you through this therapeutic process. This way of talking therapy is known as person-centred therapy, however, as I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, I may make use of different therapeutic techniques throughout the course of therapy as appropriate to your benefit.

''Philipp was so easy to chat to and he fully understood my issues and how to help me deal with them. I found the whole process to be very effective and I've been amazed by the difference in my quality of life. Philipp managed to make me feel at ease and relaxed to the point I talked more than I would ever to someone. With this kind of atmosphere and feeling so able to talk about my problems without judgement made me be able to see things more clearly and take a step back. Once I was able to talk about what was going on inside my head it made it so much easier to deal with the thoughts rationally. I wish I'd done this years ago..." - C.R.
"Philipp, Thanks for your support over the past few weeks. It has been so different from my previous experiences and is much appreciated" - D.T.
