Most of us face challenges at one point or another in our lives. Perhaps you are having difficulties with a relationship at work or at home. Maybe you have lost someone you love.
Sometimes we can feel depressed or anxious without really understanding why.
Perhaps you are finding that the old strategies that helped you cope in the past no longer work so well for you now.
My name is Ulrike and I am a psychotherapist. I offer a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space where we can explore these difficulties and look at how you can bring about change.
I practise short and longer-term psychotherapy and counselling face to face and online.

I practise integrative psychotherapy, which means I draw from a number of theories and techniques, depending on what feels appropriate and helpful to you.
Our difficulties connecting with others are often at the heart of our unhappiness and discomfort. I work relationally, which means I believe that the way we relate to others is central to our lives and, similarly, the way we interact with each other in the therapy session can help us understand how such relational difficulties arise. I believe that a better awareness of the things that either help or prevent us from forming meaningful connections is the first step on the path to change.
I have worked with people who have needed support with
I have experience of working with a diverse client population and with issues of difference and marginalisation due to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and ability.
Most people new to therapy are not always sure what to expect. It can also feel strange to talk about personal issues to someone you don’t know. I offer an initial free phone call that gives us a chance to discuss what you are looking for and address any questions you have about the therapy process. If you want to give therapy a try, I usually arrange a one-off session which will help us decide whether we can and want to work together.

Beginning therapy is like embarking on a journey of self-discovery. This process can bring new insights which can be surprising and also painful. With greater awareness, we can begin to see that things can change. Awareness creates choices, and we can begin to try out different behaviours and new ways of being - ways that feel more in tune with who we are and with what feels important to us.
I offer both time-limited counselling (6-12 sessions) and longer-term open-ended psychotherapy face to face or online. Sessions are usually on a weekly basis.
Face to face sessions in Surbiton:
Monday and Friday mornings
£75 per 50-minute session
Online sessions via Zoom:
Mondays and Tuesdays
£65 per 50-minute session
I can offer a reduced fee for counselling and psychotherapy trainees.
