"Relateable, instructive and entirely human is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Ute. I've had the pleasure of knowing Ute for few months now, during which we have worked together as colleagues and during which I have also trusted her enough to refer patients to her (who have said nothing but good things about their time with her). I am continually impressed with Ute's ability to challenge the mainstream psychology and therapy out there and truly regard this as a great asset when seeing clients. Ute's ability to make an individual feel entirely seen and heard along with her very friendly and comforting character is what stands out for me as a true therapist and why I will continually refer patients to her. She is very heartfelt in everything that she does and has only ever communicated her work with me through love, enjoyment and passion. If it is not clear - I highly recommend her. "
