ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. MY AIM AS A THERAPIST IS TO HELP YOU GAIN INSIGHT AND TO OFFER FRESH PERSPECTIVES. TOGETHER WE CAN DISCOVER NEW WAYS OF THINKING AND MOVING FORWARD
My approach to psychotherapy
Since 2008, following a career in corporate, I have been working as an executive coach, supporting clients who feel challenged by different aspects of their life such as managing difficult relationships, building self-awareness and self confidence, boosting resilience, or handling stressors.
Similar to coaching, people come to psychotherapy to address specific problems they may be experiencing and to pursue personal growth and development. What is more, psychotherapy helps us make links between past and present experiences to better understand and address our difficulties in the here and now.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I work by adjusting my therapeutic approach to meet my clients’ specific needs and requirements. Integrative psychotherapy draws from a broad range of psychotherapeutic theory and practice. It takes into account that everyone is different, with unique experiences, emotions, and beliefs.
My objective as a therapist is to help you gain insight and to offer fresh perspectives, so that together we can discover new ways of thinking and a way forward. My approach incorporates compassion and insight, providing you with a safe and non-judgmental space to explore and express your thoughts and emotions freely. I am committed to supporting and challenging you as this is where clients experience the therapeutic process as beneficial and impactful.
Some bits about me
German by passport, Londoner by choice, for the past 25 years I have lived and worked in Switzerland, France, the US and the UK and I have worked with clients from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and beliefs. This exposure has fostered my interest in how cross-cultural issues contribute to psychological distress and given me a more holistic perspective to what I do.
I have experienced first-hand how a difficult relationship with food and body image can affect one’s life, sense of self and ways of being in the world. Today food is for me an opportunity to foster well-being and health and to celebrate life as I come together with family and friends to ‘break bread’.
Finally, laughter is an important part of my life. I aim to bring humor to everything I do including the work with my clients, as it can bolster creativity and the spirit of possibility.
