Hi, I’m Yan

Counsellor, Psychotherapist & EMDR Practitioner

Welcome to my Online practice. As a psychotherapist & EMDR practitioner themes of belonging, connection and self-esteem are close to my heart. Many circumstances can cause a great deal of suffering, such as the loss of a loved one, adversity in childhood or later in life, stressful events, or work arrangements that are not aligned with your needs. Therapeutically I have a vested interest in Trauma and Neurodiversity. I hope you will find these pages useful to decide whether you want to contact me.

I am a full clinical member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and I hold an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute in London. To find out more about therapy, please arrange a 15 minute free phone call with me via my client portal:

Areas of Experience:

Trauma, Stress & PTSD

Many clients who seek my support experience various degrees of stress from overwhelming past experiences that still impact on them even though the event has passed. These type of problems are often addressed as trauma, which may sound like a big word, but all it means is literally “wound“.

Neurodiversity & ADHD

One of the areas that caught my professional interest in the past few years is neurodiversity in adults. What I mean by that is that brain and nervous-system operate differently for some people. Examples of Neurodiversity are ADHD and Autism, but there is a lot more to it.

How can I help?

Counselling & Psychotherapy are both evidence based psychological therapies. I use both words interchangeably. Talking to a psychotherapist can significantly improve your wellbeing, reduce stress and help you get through difficult phases of your life. By being transparent about the benefits and my process I hope I can help reduce anxiety and stress.

My Values & Approach

I am a humanistic, integrative psychotherapist which means my outlook into the world is biased by values of care, compassion, dignity, justice and personal growth. It also means as individuals we are inherently different and therefore one therapy approach never fits all from my perspective.

My Therapeutic Process

Transparency about my service is helpful to the clients who enjoy working with me. That’s why I decided to map out my therapeutic process, so that you have an idea what will happen when we work together. Please bear in mind, there may be variations of this process, depending on the challenges we are dealing with.

Deutsch ist meine Erstsprache

Viele Menschen finden es schwierig mit psychotherapeutisch Arbeitenden in Kontakt zu treten. Daher freue ich mich besonders, dass sie meine Seite gefunden haben. In der eigenen Muttersprache lässt es sich oftmals einfacher reden, besonders über Dinge die einem nahe gehen oder am Herzen liegen.
