English Language Counsellor & Psychotherapist in Hannover (Braunschweig & Hamburg)
An experienced psychotherapist offering counselling in both English and German.
The therapeutic space offers the opportunity to talk about what you have never been able to talk about before. A therapist will listen to your truth and helps to speak the unspeakable. She will help you to bear the unbearable. It may feel important to you use a language you feel comfortable in.
German born I lived and worked in the UK for almost twenty years. Having lived in an international city I have always worked cross culturally. In London I saw clients from across the globe. It is my aim to be sensitive to people's ethnic and cultural origin, their religious beliefs and sexual orientation.
More about me...
Sometimes in life it can helpful to talk to someone who is not part of your everyday life.
A therapist (or a counsellor) is not a friend, a colleague or an acquaintance but someone who will support and guide you.
Therapeutic sessions are private and confidential. In a safe place it is possible to talk about experiences you have never been able to talk about before. I work both on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.
Life can be difficult and feel overwhelming at times. Many difficulties are part of what it means to be human. It helps to learn to be kind and patient with ourselves. Other difficulties arise through what has been done to us an injustice, parental neglect or abuse.
If you are not sure if therapy is useful for you we could try discussing this over the phone. It could also be helpful to come for a free trial session. We can talk about your needs and if or how counselling could help you.
My standard rate is 80 € per session. I am able to offer a few low cost places. If we decide to work together the fee will be agreed in the first session.
If you feel you do not have the time or the means to travel to Hannover every week to see a counsellor I can offer you regular sessions online. However I would recommend meeting in person at least once or twice. Phone sessions are also available
Integrative psychotherapy (as well as counselling) combines theoretical ideas and practical interventions from different therapeutic models in order to meet the needs of individual clients. In my work I draw on analytic as well as humanistic approaches. Most importantly I will aim to be attuned to your process.
The nearest Strassenbahn stop (U-Bahn) is Kantplatz (line 4 and 5). The 127 bus from Misburg stops at Kantplatz as well as the 137. The nearest exit on the Messeschnellweg: Kleefeld. The Messeschnellweg makes Kleefeld accessible from Bemerode, Mittelfeld, Messe and the direction of Langenhagen.
It takes roughly 20 minutes from Hannover HBF to Kleefeld. If you are searching for an English speaking therapist it may well be worth the journey.
