When can psychotherapy be helpful?

A psychotherapeutic consultation can be helpful in difficult life situations. Such crises can impair your emotional wellbeing, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships and lifestyle. They can occur e.g. after a loss or bereavement, changes in important areas of life or when you have to take difficult decisions, adapt to a new culture or a chronic and/or serious disease.


Psychotherapy can be helpful if psychological problems persist for a longer time period and if they affect your lifestyle, performance and/or interpersonal relationships in a meaningful way. Examples for psychological problems that persist for a certain time period are:

  • Depression and Burnout
  • Eating disorders: Bulimia, Anorexia, Binge Eating, …
  • Anxiety disorders: Panic disorder, phobias, …
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder: obsessional thoughts and compulsive acts
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Emotional instability and difficulties with distress tolerance
  • Difficulties with impulse control and self-destructive behaviour
  • Personality disorders
  • Sleep disorders
  • Psychosomatic disorders: If the extent of physical symptoms cannot sufficiently be explained by organic causes
  • Substance abuse and addictive behaviour

What is my style of work?

Empathy, humanity, positive regard and authenticity are core values to my work.

I have a degree in Psychology and am a trained psychotherapist recognised by the Ministry of Health in Luxembourg. I am specialised in Cognitive-Behavioural-Therapy (CBT). Guided by empirical research, CBT uses interventions that have scientifically proven to reduce and cure psychological suffering. I will adapt the selection of the interventions individually to your needs and your current situation.

Besides using the classical CBT interventions, I use many elements of modern CBT, also called “third wave”, that is mindfulness-based therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) andDialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). I work with adults and older adolescents (15+).
