About me and my therapy practice

I am a German Board Certified Child & Youth Psychotherapist and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA). Before moving to Aberdeen during Summer 2018, I worked as a Psychotherapist in the German Neuroscience Center Dubai. I work with Children and Adults, mainly using CBT interventions. 

My professional experience includes dealing with

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories and other adverse life experience to bring these to an adaptive resolution
  • Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (VRET) to treat specific phobias
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Anxiety Disorders (Bullying victims, Performance/ Social and    Specific Anxieties, Panic attacks)
  • Depressive Disorders
  • Other behavioural and emotional disorders (such as adjustment, conduct, oppositional behaviour)
  • Somatization disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorders (OCD)
  • Eating Disorders
  • Autism-Spectrum-Disorders
How do I work with children and adolescents?


  • in-depth case history

  • thorough psychological examination
  • treatment planning with parents and their children
  • strong relationship
