My Approach

I strive to meet you exactly where you are.

I am to build a relationship grounded in safety and trust, embedded in empathy and humour. To me, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to counselling. People are unique and so are their stories, backgrounds and journeys through life.

I work holistically because I honour the interconnectedness and interaction of body and mind. This allows me to use different therapy models and techniques depending on your needs. I combine elements of trauma sensitive yoga and somatic experiencing with talk therapy. I often weave mindfulness practices into the sessions and I am trained in EMDR.

My work is person-centered, but we are not isolated entities. I see us deeply influenced and shaped by our environments, families and communities which contribute to our entire being, and I honour that in my work.

My counselling sessions open a space for you to slow down, so that you can reclaim an inner state of calm and clarity. They open a space for you to feel heard, seen and acknowledged, so that you may uncover the stress you carry and become curious about the parts of yourself that doubt, hurt, disassociate, overwork, engage in negative self-talk, feel stuck or experience intense emotions.

The sessions are an invitation to listen and drop into your body, so that you can reconnect with its innate intelligence and wisdom.

I´d be honoured to offer guidance and support along your journey but it is not without your dedication, commitment and willingness to do the inner work that is necessary. My work is designed to empower you to become curious and courageous to look beneath the surface. So that whatever is there can be seen, illuminated and healed.

I provide my counselling services in both German and English.

If you have questions or you want to schedule a free phone consultation please contact me.

I would love to hear from you!

"Should I say that working with Lisa has changed something in me and my world? That would be a hopeless understatement. After only eight wonderful sessions with her via Zoom, a profound transformation has taken place that I would never have thought possible just a few weeks ago. Little traumas that have created so much separation from myself and those I love. It didn't hurt to look at them. All it took was a little courage on my part and the loving and insanely sensitive guidance of a therapist like Lisa. I am very very grateful. Have the courage!"
