Franziska offers a safe and supportive space for her clients. She works with what clients bring to each session and at the same time helps them to find their strength in a solution-focused and structured way by exploring their past histories, the current circumstance and where they would like to go from here.
With a background in Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as other integrative psychotherapeutic approaches, bodywork and mindfulness, she takes a holistic and integrative view of every individual client. From there, creativity naturally flows into the therapeutic process.
CBT explores the link between thoughts, emotions and behaviours, which helps to identify patterns and enables collaborative work towards the desired change.
Embodiment and mindfulness encourage clients to focus on the present moment and self-awareness through embodied experience.
Franziska’s warm and embracing nature, and her holistic and integrative approach, enables her clients to find healthier and more fulfilling ways to be with themselves and others.
Franziska’s early career was in Media and Organisational Psychology, with a specialism in workplace issues, such as stress, performance, employee identity, organisational and group culture.
She then followed her other passion and moved into full-time yoga teaching and bodywork.
Franziska currently combines her work as a therapist in a dayprogramme for addiction and private practice, with being a facilitator of yoga teacher trainings and self exploration courses.
Franziska has a special interest in integrating the wisdom of the body and mind, and firmly believes that by accessing both, we can lead a more peaceful life.
Franziska is a therapist, who holds a BSc in Psychology, MSc in Occupational Psychology and PgDip in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and is a member of the BACP. Further she has completed shorter courses in Schema Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Theories as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and draws from many schools of thoughts.
She is also a 500 hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher and teacher trainer, restorative yoga teacher, yoga nidra teacher, perinatal yoga teacher as well as mindfulness and meditation teacher.
