As a licensed Clinical Psychologist and Assertiveness Coach with over 25 years of experience, I specialise in

In our sessions, we will work on
understanding panic attacks and their cause
reconnecting with your feelings and needs
exploring your wishes and visions
transforming limiting beliefs and disruptive behavioural patterns
developing new perspectives in times of hopelessness and uncertainty
how to move out of toxic relationships and learn to live a self determined life
strengthening your confidence and self-love
Sometimes we need the support of a professional in order to process life`s changing circumstances and come to terms with the message that comes with the challenge as to be able to move on and experience joy and purpose in life again.
Often, time is perceived as passing faster and faster and we experience that we can no longer keep up, being overwhelmed by life's happenings.
Our needs fall by the wayside and we increasingly lose connection with ourselves.
Ongoing mental stress can trigger anxieties, feelings of stagnation and might last but not least result in depression.
Empathetic listening is my strength and my main tool.
I implement effective psychotherapy methods and encourage you to adopt new insights and practice new and fresh approaches towards yourself and your environment.
In our sessions we will release suppressed feelings, discuss and transform self-limiting beliefs and strengthen your resilience.
We will work on self-awareness and customised to you behavioural techniques.
You will learn, that the future is in your own hands.
I will guide and encourage you to manifest your very own life decisions.
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset.
I have always known that I have needed to communicate, connect and work with people.
As a teenager, I had a huge interest in philosophy, psychology and spirituality which later on led me to study Psychological Science at the University of Hamburg, Germany where I was trained in the humanistic client centred therapy, psychoanalysis and behavioural therapy.
Since my graduation as a licensed Psychotherapist in 1995, I have been working with people of many different cultures, from serious mental health problems to day-to-day life concerns to practical problem solving.
My work and dedication is deeply rooted in the person-centred Therapy, where highly attentive and empathic listening is required.
In the course of my work experience, I have as well incorporated other valuable and helpful therapeutical methods, such as assertiveness counselling, psychological First Aid after traumatic events and Positive Psychiatry.
I use practical tools to strengthen your resilience and, being a hypersensitive Person myself, intuition plays a significant role in my sessions.
I am a proud mother and a lover of music, fine arts, food and nature.
"A lovely lady who helped me through a particularly difficult time in my life. Gentle in her approach, kind, understanding, totally non-judgemental and, above all, highly professional"
"I remember that you understood the roots of my problems already in our very first session. Then came the learning, step by step, it was sometimes hard but you gave me the strength to keep moving forward and to being able to communicate and who knows where me and my boys would be now without you?"
"The first time I went to a session with Claudia I was worried, insecure, I didn't know how the session worked... But after Claudia's positivism and motivation every time I have attended her sessions I have felt happy, motivated, with a positive mentality and willing to learn from my mistakes and grow as a person".
"Weil ich aus einem Tief nicht mehr alleine rausfand, wandte ich mich an Claudia, die mir von einer Freundin empfohlen wurde.
Unbürokratisch schnell bekam ich einen Termin. Seither habe ich ihre Hilfe mehrmals beansprucht, um mir Rat und Unterstützung in schwierigen Lagen zu holen. Claudia ist eine gute Zuhörerin und erfasst die Situation vollständig. Sie ist vertrauenswürdig und zugewandt. Nach den Terminen fühle ich mich besser und blicke klarer in die Welt."
