Counselling, Psychotherapy & EMDR

About Me

Originally from Germany I moved to London in 2010 and trained as a Psychotherapist. I have lived and worked for two years in Marbella, Spain where I've supported English and German speaking communities with psychotherapy.

As a queer psychotherapist with German/Middle Eastern heritage, I understand the internal and external pressures related to gender, sexuality, identity and culture.

Growing up in a muslim family in Germany left me often wondering where I belonged. I am aware of the challenges a diverse background with intersecting experiences may has on individuals. This awareness shapes my work as a therapist and I offer a nonjudgmental and accepting space for exploration.

My training enables me to support clients effectively. I draw from a wide set of therapeutic approaches to meet my clients needs and preferences. I am experienced with short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy and worked for various services including the NHS.

I am accredited as a Full Clinical Psychotherapist by the UK Council for Psychotherapy and comply with their code of ethics and professional practice. I am also a member of the EMDR Association for UK & Ireland.
