About Me

Qualifications and
Professional Membership

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma and a Master in Counselling from the University of Edinburgh.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and of the Psychologists Protection Society (PPS).

 

As part of abiding by the BACP code of ethics, I take ongoing personal and professional development very seriously, participating in regular further training, personal therapy and clinical supervision.

Journey, Training and Experience

 

Originally from Germany, I have lived in the UK since 2011. Whilst studying social psychology and then working in the market research industry, I discovered that the most rewarding part of my work was the meaningful interaction with research participants, and my interest in their lives, which eventually led me to pursue counselling training.

I have since worked with clients in counselling agencies in and around Edinburgh, including Hope Park Counselling Centre, the University of Dundee Student and Staff Counselling Service, as well as Arkordia, an Edinburgh based cooperative of fully qualified therapists.

My experience includes working with anxiety, depression, bereavement, abuse and neglect, living with illness, loss and transitions, questions around identity, sexuality, and relationships. I also have a particular interest in pain, and how we carry it in our bodies.

Though my training was completed in the English language, I also have experience of offering counselling in German and / or working in both languages where this is necessary or helpful.
