creative therapy and counselling for

children and families in Berlin

I am offering community-based therapy and counselling services for children and families in Berlin Kreuzberg. My creative therapy approach stems from my training in both psychodynamic art psychotherapy and systemic family therapy. In my practice, it is important to me to acknowledge that everybody faces their own unique challenges and questions in life. Individuals are different and so are families. Some children are raised by one parent, while others have two mothers or fathers. There are also couples who don’t have children or decide to adopt or foster a child. Sometimes two families merge together, at other times a family might decide to separate.

If one or more family members struggle with a transition or with other issues, therapy can offer support in a safe and reflective space. I offer sessions for children, couples and families as well as counselling for parents and dyadic parent-child sessions. Together we can discuss what kind of support is the most suitable in your situation.

Besides offering therapy, I cooperate with different institutions and organisations in order to support therapists, social workers and pedagogues through trainings and seminars. I work and consult with colleagues of the international creating links network whenever possible.

using art in therapy

Particularly when working with children and young people, art and creativity can provide an easier and more accessible way for expression and communication than just using words. Within this context, art can also function as a medium to address emotional issues. The chance to express oneself in an open and supportive environment can enhance well-being and positively impact on the educational, social and psychological development of young people.

Due to their focus, art therapy sessions differ from art lessons or creative activities, although they can be enjoyable.
Clients do not need to have any previous experience or talents.
