EMDR Training as Traumatherapist

As a teacher, I worked more then  ten years with families on how to cope with mental distress and developmental problems. I was allowed to work in Egypt for 1 year and got to gain more insight into intercultural work.

In 2020 I specialized in trauma & anxiety treatment, especially those with traumatic experiences. In my work I use the EMDR therapy and combine professional consultation, with my knowledge about diverse social, cultural and religious backgrounds.  It would be my pleasure to share this know-how with you as well, you do not have to face your challenges alone.

It is my goal to support you, by strengthening your relationship with yourself and / or with others, so you can live your life authentically.

I offer counseling online and offline in three languages: German, English, Turkish

* Egyptian-Arabic is possible to a limited extent
