About Christina

The search for my true Self has taken me on an interesting journey: from investment banker in the financial centres of New York and London to committed energy healer.

Born in the US to German parents, I came to London from New York in the early nineties to pursue a career in finance in the City. I married and quickly gave up my lucrative job to become a stay-at-home mother, thinking that motherhood would fulfill me. Despite “having it all”, I was deeply unhappy and restless. A diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (a chronic inflammatory joint and autoimmune condition) and depression followed the birth of my third daughter. I spent the majority of the next 20 years “fighting” the disease, in one way or another: pharmaceuticals, nutritional protocols, supplementation, NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and EFT (emotional freedom technique), as well as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, acupuncture, Reiki, reflexology and shiatsu. 20 years of resisting, pushing away, denying, outrunning and outsmarting the disease. Or so I thought.
Today, with mild to severe deformity in my hands and feet, I have finally come into full acceptance of this illness. Acceptance of everything that I needed to learn from it. Acceptance that it is/was self-inflicted, that it is my responsibility, but not my fault.

My healing journey has been truly transformational and life-changing: I identified my deeply ingrained self-loathing, rigidity/perfectionism and repressed anger, sadness and fear all of which have contributed to my autoimmune condition. I learned to lovingly accept all aspects of myself, layer by layer, the shadow and the light, and thereby reveal my true Self. I also discovered that healing is awakening to who we truly are, not just fixing an illness. Through my own experience and my relentless search for "something more", I knew that I wanted to share my knowledge and help others.
"Be yourself, everyone else is taken."

About Christina. When we as women

I started studying Nutritional Therapy in 2009 at the Centre for Nutrition Education and Life Management (CNELM). I completed my NLP Practitioner in 2011. Combining nutrition with psychology/coaching and needing to address my own food obsessions, I completed my Master Practitioner at the National Centre for Eating Disorders (NCFED) in 2012.

I discovered energy psychology in the form of EFT in 2010 and have never looked back. I trained extensively with EFT Masters, Sue Beers and Emma Roberts, at The EFT Centre in North London. In 2015, I completed the Diploma in Integrated Energy Techniques (IET), which combines EFT with NLP. In addition to my Accredited Advanced EFT practitioner qualification, I am also a Master Practitioner of NLP, Hypnosis and TimeLine Therapy. In 2019, I added a Basic Trainer certification of neurofeedback to my qualifications.

My main therapeutic tool is EFT, but I also draw on a host of NLP, coaching, mindfulness and assertiveness training skills. I highly recommend that clients invest in a neurofeedback system at home.

Daily self-tapping and neurofeedback sessions continue to strengthen my connection to myself. As long as we are alive, the process of growth and learning never stops. So, whilst my own process of self-inquiry and self-healing is ongoing, I offer to become your companion and guide on your journey. I hold a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space for you to explore all aspects of your Self in order for you to become empowered to take personal responsibility for your own path of awakening, healing and growth.

I am trilingual in English, French and German.

I write a twice weekly blog, which you can access by following me on Instagram.
