About Me

"Inside of everyone is a great shout of joy waiting to be born " David Whyte Hello I am a Scottish Psychologist and Sensorimotor Psychotherapist. I fully believe that each of us has the capacity for wholeness and the ability to heal, grow and thrive. I meet you where you are and work collaboratively, flexibly & resource-oriented with you, understand the roots of your difficulties, work through painful wounds, heal trauma & empower you to live a fuller life. My therapeutic approach is holistic, based on modern interpersonal neurobiological expertise and combines talk therapy with the memory and knowledge of the body, breath awareness, simple Somatic skills and mindfulness My therapeutic approach thus integrative and combines traditional talk therapy with a Sensorimotor Psychotherapy approach including mindfulness, breath and body awareness. I live and work in Zürich Switzerland . I work in both my native language English and German
