Ulrike became interested in art as a child and used creativity to help her navigate life.

Later while working abroad as a development worker with street children, Ulrike used the arts to promote growth and wellbeing and eventually went on to complete her full training as an Art Psychotherapist in the UK.

Since qualifying she has worked in family support, trauma recovery, bereavement and hospice work. Ulrike is also trained in Somatic Experiencing which is a body-based therapeutic approach that works well alongside art therapy.
