Curriculum Vitae

Many years ago my fascination with human experience and development motivated me to become a psychotherapist. In my daily work it is my priority to provide my clients with a safe connection within which to explore things they may never have spoken about before, so they can understand themselves better and bring about positive change. For me psychotherapy is a collaboration between two experts. As an expert for psychotherapy it is my task to support you as the expert of your own life so you can make appropriate decisions for the next stages of your life.

What is important to me in my work

You are welcome in my therapy room with all your thoughts and feelings. Whether you are a man or a woman, you can cry, be angry, afraid, not know what to say and so on. No matter how embarrassing or senseless your thoughts or experiences appear, you can talk about anything. And if you can’t find the words, that is also ok. You can be quiet. You don’t always have to know what to say next. The point at which words run out is usually the point at which something new emerges and that helps us move a step forward.

As a member of the “International Center for Clinical Excellence” I carry out “Feedback-Informed Therapy”. This means that we remain in constant exchange about how you are currently profiting from therapy. This helps us make sure that psychotherapy is finely tuned to your individual priorities and personal preferences.

To guarantee the quality of my therapy work, I am in a constant training process.  I am also part of a network of colleagues who work together in intervision groups. Just get in touch if you have any questions.
