A little about GeistCollective

Rahel is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with a background in international aid. After studying Arabic and Middle Eastern studies in Berlin and Damascus she undertook various placements in the region, working short term for small scale NGOs in Afghanistan, Yemen and Sudan, leaving a lasting impression and appreciation of the people and places encountered.

Settling in London to raise her children, Rahel completed an MA in Intercultural Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with the Refugee Therapy Centre and UEL while carrying on working in the voluntary sector. She lastly helped to design and implement a school based frontline model for the successful collective impact charity West London Zone, creating bespoke support packages for children and families at risk. After relocating to Spain Rahel remains working in private practice offering supervision for front line staff and psychotherapy via video calls or occasional face to face meetings.

Rahel’s style of working is relational and adaptive to the individual needs of the client. Her experience over the past years includes working with adults and children presenting with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, relationship difficulties and migration related issues. She is registered with the UKCP-CPJA and offers long or short-term therapy of up to twice weekly sessions in English and German.


Being in therapy often is a daring encounter, however one that most people are deeply grateful for. Psychotherapy in my view aims to understand the impact of past present relationships better as well as offers an acceptive and empathetic space to enable the client to cope with challenging and at times unbearable situations. To examine difficulties safely and effectively sessions are held at the same time every week and will be reviewed on a regular basis.

Cost: £45 for a 50 minute session


In my experience many case workers, aid workers or support workers find supervision useful to discuss their caseload, challenging cases and difficulties arising in the workplace with an external professional to increase self-awareness, support safe practice and ensure practitioners’ wellbeing. Supervision sessions are usually held monthly, and the supervisor will spend time to get to know the organisation to offer effective solution focused support.

Cost: £75 for a 60 minute session


Through my experience of working for a range of charities in several countries, my psychoanalytic training and intercultural expertise I can aid organisations in implementing targeted interventions to improve mental health for children and adults as well as offer advice on psychosocial support strategies. I am further able to deliver training for local staff on topics such as ‘Parental Engagement’, ‘Understanding Challenging Behaviour in Children’ and ‘Community Building and Resilience.’
