About me

My name is Christine Wathome-Pelz. I am a non-medical practitioner for psychotherapy (Heilpraktikerin für Psychotherapie) licensed in Krefeld, Germany and an Australian trained professional counsellor. My private practice is situated in the city of Moers in Northrhine-Westfalia (NRW). I typically offer psychotherapy services in person.
I was born and grew up in Kenya before moving to Germany more than 25 years ago for studies. I have also lived in the UK and Australia.

Treatment Approach

In my work I draw from multiple psychotherapy models including cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused and values-based approaches. I view therapy as a process in which the client and the therapist work collaboratively.  I am committed to providing a safe space with the potential for change to happen as clients work on the life issues they choose to address. My training in Client-Centred Therapy underpins the respectful, non-judgemental, empathic stance in my interaction with clients.
