Each person experiences life and specific situations in a different way. As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist I adapt my way of working to each client’s needs. In my work I draw on relational psychoanalytic thinking, attachment theory and Gestalt therapy, and Existential philosophy. I believe that trust and the right ‘chemistry’ between client and counsellor are essential to build a relationship that allows clients to feel safe to share difficult and often painful issues. My clients and I work collaboratively to explore what lies behind emotions, behaviors and thoughts in order for them to gain more self-awareness and the ability to heal or change if necessary. I offer individual face-to-face and online counselling in English, German and Swiss German.

Prior to becoming a counsellor and psychotherapist I worked for over 15 years in staffing and executive development for large multinational companies. A keen interest in how our body mirrors emotional states and holds traumatic experiences led me to learn different body-related therapies, and I subsequently opened my own private practice in Zurich. In 2006 I moved to London where I first began studying psychology before taking up psychotherapy. Besides working as a counsellor in Higher Education and as a psychotherapist in the National Health Service I also worked for a suicide help line and for a mental health charity. In 2014 I returned to Zurich. Working and living in different countries (Canada, Brazil, Spain, UK) have given me an understanding of the many adjustments that people are faced with when leaving their home countries. These experiences including my own previous therapy as a training therapist are invaluable for my work as a counsellor.
