After working as a Clinical Psychologist in Austria and Germany for many years, I moved to the UK in 2000 and spent the last thirteen years practising for the NHS as a Specialist Clinical Consultant Psychologist. Recently retired, I am now working in private practice, where I am happy to be able to continue to use my knowledge and experience to help a variety of clients to overcome emotional and behavioural problems. I am also pleased to offer professional consultations and assessments.
In 1973 I completed my training and obtained a PhD in Psychology at the Paris-Lodron-University, Salzburg. I have undertaken numerous training courses over the years in Austria, Germany and England covering a broad range of psychological models and approaches. I have a strong interest in life-span development and therapy research and have invested a lot of time and effort in my CPD (Continual Professional Development).
During my long career I have gained experience in many areas of clinical psychology including working with children, adolescents and families, adults and older adults, as well as learning-disabled children and adults. I have also been strongly involved in staff training and consultations.
I adhere to the principle, backed by research, that a good client rapport and collaboration are pivotal for a good outcome. My approach is solution-focused guided by Positive Psychology using evidence-based psychological therapies including CBT.
Over the years I have been able to help numerous clients to overcome all kinds of problems and improve their quality of life.
