My name is Sarah Meertens. I am a “Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie” (non-medical practitioner for psychotherapy), certified by the Mainz health department, having my own practice for psychotherapy (according to the Heilpraktikergesetz) & coaching. My path to working in the field of psychology started at a higher education institution where I gained first coaching experience with students. I found that this activity fulfilled me more than any other professional experience before. So, what to do? With hiking shoes and a pilgrim backpack, I decided to “hike out” my solution. Constant companion during the days of my pilgrimage was the increasingly clear desire to follow my passion professionally.

“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and to trust the magic of the beginning.” (Meister Eckhart)

Back in Germany, I therefore resigned from my job and, after the baby break, started my training as a “Heilpraktikerin für Psychotherapie”.

Of course you don't always need such a drastic turnaround as it was expedient for me. Already small changes can path the way to a happier life in the long term. I am excited to find out what constitutes a “happy life” for you, and I look forward to being by your side on your very personal journey there.
