Clinical Education And Work

In my clinical work in Austria and the UK I gained extensive experience in the treatment and support of people in difficult life situations and with various psychiatric conditions. My main clinical focus is on treating people with depression, burn-out syndrome, psychosis, bipolar illness, borderline personality disorder, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder.

I also have a longstanding collaboration with specialists for internal medicine, especially oncology, focussing on the multi-professional treatment and support of people with cancer and their relatives and carers.
