Training

Anja has a postgraduate diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapeutic counselling from The University of Brighton, as well as a diploma in Online Counselling from OCST. She is a registered member of the BACP and abides by their code of ethics.

Alongside her private practice, she has worked for various charitable organisations. These include LGBT Switchboard, an organisation committed to offering a safe space for people from the LGBT community. 3rd Age Counselling, offering low cost or free counselling to the isolated and elderly. Brighton Women's Centre, offering well-being services and safe group spaces for women in need.

Approach

There are many things in our lives that can make us feel anxious or unwell, whether it's the everyday pressures of job and commitments, challenging and uncertain times or the loss of a loved one. And sometimes, we might not feel like ourselves without knowing why.

Anja offers a safe and confidential space to talk about anything that might weigh heavily on your mind, and to explore ways and methods that help you feel heard and connected. By helping you feel curious about yourself, by discovering previous and current patterns of coping, she believes that a change can be made that will suit you.

Although her background is informed by psychodynamic theory, she does not have just one way of working. Her focus is on the relationship in the room and how previous relationships have shaped and affected you. She also likes to work creatively – by utilising music, art, writing and dreams – as it will offer you different ways to express yourself when talking is too difficult or just not the right way to make yourself heard.

Originally from Germany, she is happy to provide counselling in both English and German. And as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, she would like to especially extend a warm and safe environment for other members of the community.
