I am working as a person-centered psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor in private practice in Vienna, Austria. I qualified with a diploma of APG • IPS, Austria, in Person-Centered Psychotherapy in 2013 and Person-Centered Group Psychotherapy in 2016. Beside my devotion to the PCA I also enjoy organizing! Since 2019 I am head of APG.IPS training, I have been one of the organizers of PCE2018 in Vienna and have been been member of the management board of APG propaedeutic training in psychotherapy in Vienna from 2013-2018. Before I started my psychotherapy training (and after having graduated in translation for English and Italian at the University of Vienna) I worked for many years as management assistant, having been responsible for administration, finance, and HR (in the area of visual arts and construction development –I have already then been used to work with very different persons, in a wide range of issues and fields).
Since 2018 I have the honor to chair the WAPCEPC board and I enjoy working for and within the PCE world, within a committed team of wonderful colleagues spread around the world.
I am happy to be on the board for a second term and am very much looking forward to proceed with the tasks that we have started to work on since 2018 and to work together with a new team of board colleagues.
For me, the person-centered approach is not just a method to be worked with, but a way of being. Due to my commitment to the PCE approach, I want to make my own contribution within a worldwide organization to provide a forum for practitioners and scientists from the PCE world, to promote PCE perspectives and to stimulate dialogue with other psychotherapeutic orientations. It is my personal concern that the PCE world feels represented by WAPCEPC and that the PCE world is represented in the bigger world of therapies and in society.
