Service Approach 


I use evidence-based practice to support, empower, and hold space for you.

How I Work

The foundation of my counseling and coaching service lies in Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), a 3rd wave CBT-based approach. ACT is a multifaceted approach that aims to increase our potential to live a full, rich and meaningful life. My approach is centered around 3 processes:

Be Present

Open Up

Do What Matters

Where I Work

Online

I offer online services from wherever you are!  Online services allow young people to reflect on their internal and external experiences in the comfort of their own home. This service is safe, comforting and convenient. An overwhelming amount of research is suggesting that online therapy (teletherapy) is as effective as in-person therapy.

In-person

I offer in-person psychological counseling and coaching  for adolescents and young adults in Kreuzberg, Berlin. In-person sessions allow for mindful and deep psychological work in a safe and comfortable setting.

Service Cost

Sessions are paid privately. Psychological counseling and coaching services are not covered by German public or private health insurance and so I am unable to take insurance payments.

 

The benefits of self-paying services are immediate service provision and no beauracratic paperwork. As a privately paying client, your mental health records will remain confidential and will not be communicated to your health insurance company. 

Offsetting Coaching Costs on Tax

Some coaching fees may be tax deductible if the coaching is prompted by your professional circumstances and is sought out for professional development. The costs can be claimed as professional expenses in tax returns. Please consult with a tax advisor for more detailed information.

Service Limitations

Please note:

The services I offer here are counseling and coaching services and not psychotherapy services. I received the education and training of a CBT/ ACT therapist and testing psychologist in areas of diagnosis and intensive therapy from an accredited institution. I am registered and licensed by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and I am currently practicing in Germany. Due to German limitations and regulations in diagnostics and psychotherapy for psychologists, I have intentionally transitioned into psychological counseling/ coaching.

 

As a counseling psychologist, I support individuals with processing and overcoming a range of social-emotional difficulties that may impact on their ability to live a meaningful life. On the contrary, German psychotherapy regulations are based on an intensive diagnostic process that serves the healing and therapeutic intervention of psychological disorders and psychiatric illnesses.

 

If you are experiencing an acute mental health crises and are seeking diagnostics and clinical intervention, please contact a psychotherapist in your area. If you require immediate support, please contact German emergency services (112) or a German suicide hotline (0800 1110111). For other countries, please visit this website https://blog.opencounseling.com/suicide-hotlines/. If you are unsure, you can book a free initial consultation with me and I can help you figure out what is best for you.
