Natalie Marby – English Speaking Therapist
Natalie Marby is an English Speaking Therapist offering psychotherapy and counselling for foreigners living in Hamburg. She is half British and half German and is a licensed and experienced psychotherapist (non-medical psychological practitioner) with an education in psychoanalysis, depth psychology, talking therapy and art therapy. Depending on the client’s issue, Natalie uses a variety of methods based on behaviour therapy, cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction and client-centered psychotherapy. Her approach is positive and goal oriented and her main method is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
CBT is a short-term, highly effective psychotherapy that produces clear, measurable changes. It is based on the idea that our (conscious and unconscious) thoughts create our feelings and our feelings then create a certain behaviour. In order to change a behaviour, it may help to question your thoughts and especially the way you interpret situations. CBT can help you to identify unhelpful interpretations about others, the world and yourself through a process of evaluation, which will then help you to change any dysfunctional behaviour.
Natalie specialises in treating typical expatriate mental health issues, such as culture shock (loneliness, homesickness), life transitions and change, feeling disconnected from yourself, confusion, disorientation and frustration, foreign language anxiety (fear of speaking German) as well as anxiety/phobia, depression, addiction, relationship problems, communication issues, burnout and work related stress, eating disorders, PTSD, body image disturbances, anger management, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorders) and many other mental health issues.
“Mental health issues often mean that you are re-creating a thought pattern learned in the past. With my work I want people to understand the connection between their thoughts and their emotions and how they can make the present more powerful than the past.” Natalie
