I am a UKCP accredited psychoanalytic psychotherapist (IPSS) and have been working as a psychotherapist for the past 7 years.
My professional background is in teaching and education. After my Matura (A-levels) in Austria, I qualified as a teacher for Secondary School. I have been involved in teaching children and adults ever since, specializing in German as a Foreign Language.
When I became a mother in 2005, I decided to undergo psychotherapy. I developed a keen interest in understanding how our earliest relationships with our primary caregivers shape the way in which we feel, behave and relate in later life. This curiosity lead me to train as a psychotherapist myself.
In my work, I integrate relational psychoanalytic psychotherapy, attachment theory, insights from neuroscience and -biology and developmental psychology, but also philosophy and other disciplines.
