Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling in Hannover-Kleefeld


English Language Counsellor in Hannover (near Braunschweig)

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. I am using attachment theory as well as psychodynamic and relational theory. Most importantly I will aim to be attuned to your process.
In my work I draw on attachment as well as pychodynamic and relational theory. Psychodynamic work seeks to understand the past in order to achieve more freedom in the present: it works with what is communicated unconsciously.
I also work relationally to raise awareness of the here-and-now relationship between client and therapist.
It is my aim to be sensitive to people's ethnic and cultural origin, their religious beliefs and sexual orientation. I understand that living in a culture different to your own can raise difficult questions.
A psychotherapist (or a counsellor) is not a friend, a colleague or an acquaintance but someone who will support and guide you.
In a safe place it is possible to talk about experiences you have never been able to talk about before. A psychotherapist (counsellor) will listen to your truth and helps to speak the unspeakable. She will help you to bear the unbearable.
Psychotherapeutic sessions are private and confidential. My psychotherapeutic work is professionally supervised by a trained psychotherapist. A psychotherapist (or a counsellor) is not a friend, a colleague or an acquaintance but someone who will support and guide you.

Psychotherapy in English as well as in German

I am a counsellor offering psychotherapy (& counselling) in English as well as in German depending on which language is most comfortable for you. German born I lived and worked in the UK for almost twenty years. During that time I trained as a psychotherapist (and counsellor) at an established psychotherapeutic training college (Minster Centre, London) and obtained the MA from Middlesex University.
Having lived in an international city I have always worked cross culturally. In London I saw clients from across the globe.
Many people have had therapy in their second or third language and found it worked for them.
It is a struggle to learn a new language as an adult. If English has helped you on your journey you may find it easier to talk to someone who speaks English as well. Psychotherapy (as well as counselling) in my experience also works when English (or German) is your second language.
Even if you are feeling already quite comfortable speaking German it may be helpful to see a counsellor who speaks English as well as German when English is your first language. The success of therapy depends one the quality of the relationship we are going to build. This is facilitated through language.

Student Counselling

Being a student is a great opportunity. As any new experience is may also be a difficult experience, in particular when you are in a foreign country. There may be questions you want to explore. Am I studying what I want or am I doing what my parents want me to do? How do I make friends at university? How do I cope with cultural differences?
Working at post graduate level may raise its own challenges. How do I deal with uncertainties of doing research? Is it all worth it? Counselling may will help you to deal with depression.
As a student you may qualify for low cost therapy.


English Language Counselling & Psychotherapy (Anger, Depression, Anxiety, Bereavement)

Anger, anxiety, envy
Feelings such as anger, anxiety, envy and rage can be hard to bear. They are nevertheless part of being human. A counsellor or psychotherapist will help you to contain these feelings (anger, anxiety, envy) and to understand them.
Counselling as well as psychotherapy can help you to understand your anger and to use it effectively.
Anxiety helps us to avoid danger but it can get in the way of healthy functioning in the world. Counselling can be very effective in containing anxious feelings.
Envy can hinder us to build meaningful relationships in the here and now - and make us generally unhappy. Jealous feelings need to be understood and acknowledged.
Bereavement
In our world today we are often expected to function well at all times. But at times of bereavement it is quite normal not to feel well. A weekly counselling session can offer the space you need to explore all your difficult feelings of bereavement.
The death of a loved one is not the only event that can leave us feeling bereft: losing a job, moving house, ending a significant relationship are also situations of loss and bereavement. A counsellor will listen attentively and accompany you on your journey.
Depression
Depression is often a way of coping with overwhelming experiences. The body shuts down.
In the safety of a therapy session you can allow yourself to experience difficult feelings at your own pace (bit by bit).
Immigration
Living and working in a foreign country can be an enriching as well as an incredibly difficult experience. It is not easy to build a life in a culture different to your own. Having gone through the experience myself I do understand some of the difficulties that can arise even though everybody's experience is unique. Immigration is even more difficult to deal with when we have not chosen to leave the country we have grown up in.
Relationships
As human beings we are wired to live in relationships. We all need relationships to live and to thrive. During the first years of our lives we cannot survive without good caregiving relationships. More often than not we also get hurt in those early years and these early experiences can prevent us from building good relationships in the here and now. Psychoherapy is an opportunity to learn new ways of relating to other people.
Stress
Life can be very stressful at times. It takes time to adjust to a major change in life.
Counselling can help to contain feelings of anxiety and work through difficult experiences of (perceived) failure. Parenting or work pressures can be situations where it can be very helpful to talk to someone who is not part of the problem.
