In 2002 I embarked on a rigorous and enriching training at the Minster Centre in London that included depth work of an experiential, clinical and academic nature. I qualified with an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling in 2007.
Through the years, I have worked with a wide variety of issues in several different clinical settings.
Furthermore, I have lived in a number of different countries and in Berlin - more on than off - for 20 years. Thus, I am well versed in the difficulties that sometimes manifest themselves in the wake of moving to a foreign country, be it out of choice or necessity. The newness and uprootedness can serve to amplify underlying issues, in turn leaving us feeling vulnerable and overwhelmed.
My work in this area is further informed by my engagement as a voluntary counsellor with Xenion, a psychosocial association providing therapy to refugees and victims of torture.
Another area of keen interest to me is the passage into parenthood and for many the turbulent and challenging time that it can signify. I intend to set up a parent support group in the near future.
I have the German Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie license and am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, BACP.
