I am a fully trained Counselling Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) (membership no. 147062) and their Division of Counselling Psychology (HCPC registered) and a fully trained Psychotherapist accredited with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) (membership no. 08159916). I abide by the code of ethics of my registering organisation the Society for Existential Analysis.
I completed all of my training in 2007 at Regent’s School of Psychotherapy and Psychology where I gained a Master and Post Masters Degree in Existential Counselling Psychology and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy. I am also on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors.
My personal experiences of different cultures and migration have given me a particular insight into questions of identity and difference. I speak fluently Swiss-German and German and have an intimate knowledge of the Italian and French language and culture.
As a regular practitioner of meditation for over 20 years I pay particular attention to questions of Being and mindful living. Both Eastern and Existential philosophies inform my work as well as Gestalt theory, the Neurobiology of Trauma, and embodied modalities such as Body-Mind-Centering and Yoga.
