About me and my therapy practice
Perhaps you are going through a difficult period and would like to explore it with a therapist or maybe you're struggling with anxiety, panic or OCD and would like to learn strategies to help you cope better. Just message me and we can arrange for an initial phone consultation (no charge).
My integrative approach draws on humanistic, cognitive and experiential schools of psychotherapy. In practice, you choose a topic to explore and I will help you make sense of what is really going on for you. Sometimes, I may ask you to pause and inwardly sense a bodily felt sensation that accompanies a topic and sometimes I’ll gently recommend some simple strategies to help you better manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I specialise in anxiety related issues such as generalised anxiety disorder, OCD and panic. Having lived with anxiety myself as well as having worked for Anxiety UK since 2018 I can relate to individuals who struggle with constant worry. Over the past few years, I have learned and further developed effective methods that have helped many clients cope better with their anxiety. I also have experience in working with relationship issues, low self-esteem, depression, trauma, work - related issues, anger and bereavement.

''Philipp was so easy to chat to and he fully understood my issues and how to help me deal with them. I found the whole process to be very effective and I've been amazed by the difference in my quality of life... I wish I'd done this years ago..." - C.R.
"Philipp, I would like to thank you for helping me discuss, process and make peace with a lot of things I wasn’t aware I was holding onto...'' - J.D.
