Josefine is a senior psychotherapist in private practice since 1985.
Her work is broadly speaking integrative and psychodynamic, strongly informed by attachment theory and trauma theory. Her original training was in body psychotherapy and holistic psychotherapy. Psychoanalysis and her experience of working with the dying and the bereaved have broadened her outlook.

She works with adults from all walks of life and from a variety of cultural backgrounds who suffer with anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, bereavement, affected by chronic or life-threatening illness, end of life issues, grief and loss, creative blocks, stress and trauma. She has a special interest in working with unresolved grief and attachment trauma across the lifespan.

She is a clinical supervisor offering supervision individually or in small groups. She is a supervisor for a bereavement service.

In 2015 she set up the Hampstead Psychotherapy Club which she now hosts online with her colleague Claudia Nielsen.

Prior to becoming a therapist Josefine studied art in Stuttgart and Berlin. In 1975 she settled in the UK. She is a mother and grandmother.
