Counsellor, Art Therapist and psychotherapist (HpG)

Kelly Robinson-Treutler

"As a therapist one can never stop learning..."


About Me

My name is Kelly Robinson- Treutler and I am South African. My qualifications include Counseling and Psychotherapy (HPG) and additionally I have specialised in Art Therapy. I have experience with adults, children and adolescents. I believe that being a mother of two has given me first-hand  insight into the twists and turns of parenting- a life-skill that continues to help me be a better therapist :-)
I offer individual and family therapy sessions, as well as parental support and therapy.

Education and Experience

I gained a Bachelor degree in Fine Art with honours from the University of Cape Town. I then went on to study General Psychology, Child and Adolescent Development, Personality Theories and Abnormal Psychology.
In Cape Town I gained experience volunteering in a prison psychiatric ward and an orphanage, where I worked with adults and adolescents coming from abusive homes. In 2008 I lived in America, where I did an exchange program whilst studying Psychology and working with children.

In 2009 I moved to Munich, where I completed my Art Therapy degree, followed by a diploma in Counseling and Psychotherapy. While studying, I gained several years of teaching experience with children between the ages of 3 and 14. I also worked closely with parents in a supportive role.  This was in addition to working as an Art Therapist in an adult drug addiction clinic in Munich.
I am recognised by the German Health and Environmental Department (Referat für Gesundheit und Umwelt) and am a registered “Heilpraktikerin für Psychotherapie” (natural health professional in Psychotherapy).

As a therapist one can never stop learning, which has led me to participate in several advanced training courses in professional development. Some of these include anatomy and physiology, sexual abuse, sex education, family communication, early multilingual development and children with behavioural problems, family and parental counseling, CBT.

Areas of Specialization

I have been working at PsyShrink since 2015, where the areas that I specialise in can be treated in a traditional spoken- therapy or art therapy setting. In some cases a combination of the two can be very effective. For a more detailed look at my therapeutic methods please follow this link:
