Anja Dittmeier, M.A., HPP

Are you unhappy with your current life situation and / or having experienced trauma? Are you living and working abroad? Maybe, you are also raising your child outside your home culture? Or, is your life partner from another culture and in one way or the other you don´t speak the same language with each other? Then, you will benefit from my attachment-based, culturally sensitive and trauma-informed coaching, counseling and therapy approach. I am here to help, on-site in Berlin and online anywhere in the world.

Being certified in attachment-based-counseling and attachment-based-psychotherapy, cross cultural training, coaching, as well as trained in imago relationship counseling, integrative trauma therapy and holding a license as health practitioner for psychotherapy in Germany, I find myself particularly effective in assisting individual clients and couples of a cross-cultural background healing from life´s challenges and creating their understanding of success, happiness, joy.

Based on this professional background, it is one of my main convictions that the way we grew up – even in a transgenerational sense – has a tremendous impact on how we perceive our personal and relational lives, our profession and how we are shaping our future.

In order to assist my clients best, I implement neuro-scientifically proven methods and approaches, such as Brainspotting and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), meditation, breathing and mindfulness exercises, tapping, visualization exercises and techniques of resource activation, gestalt therapy or behavioral therapy into the sessions.

Topics, I can support you with are:

  • General psychological concerns and problems of conducting life
  • Anxiety, depression, burnout, trauma
  • Emotional commotion, helplessness, conflicts
  • Personality disorders, issues of behavior and personality development
  • Relationship problems
  • Migration and integration issues of expatriates, global nomads (TCK / ATCK), refugees and displaced persons

International counseling sessions take place in end-to-end encrypted sessions on zoom. 

A bit of my background story:

I am the founder of kAleiDoscope Coaching & Counseling, assisting my clients in German and English since 2015 on-site in Berlin and online globally. I hold a master’s degree in education, psychology and theology and I am specialized in interpersonal relationships. I look back at 24+ years of experience in the fields of training, education, coaching and counseling.

While I was living abroad in the United States for 4.5 years, I coached and counseled locals and expatriates from around the globe. Knowing the challenges that go along with mastering one’s professional and personal life as an expatriate abroad – including raising two third-culture kids (TCK) as well as leaving everything well known behind – led to my approach of merging attachment-based knowledge with cultural sensitivity, enhanced by modern therapeutic methods.
