Cert. Psych. Gabriel Ellis

Psychotherapy and Self-Development


Expat Therapy for Individuals and Couples

For the last eight years I've lived as an expat. I do psychotherapy with expat clients and am passionate to support their development - individually and in relationships. My work is solution-oriented, and to this end I integrate a deep understanding of my clients' unconscious.


I pragmatically draw elements from CBT, Depth Psychology, Meditation, Hypnotherapy, and Systemic Psychology. In addition I am a Buddhist scholar, meditator, and generally fascinated by the potential of the human mind.

"Finding myself lost in a transitional phase of life, I was looking for a professional to talk to. I looked for someone with an evidence based approach but also open for a more existential perspective. In Gabriel Ellis I found the right person: a very attentive listener, both empathic and to the point, who could really meet me where I was at the time, and help me chart a way forward."  (Thomas, 41, university teacher)

„As my professional and personal life was approaching a key transition period I looked for support on this journey and found it with Gabriel. Over the past few months Gabriel’s support was crucial in navigating through that difficult time. Sessions with Gabriel allowed me to take the necessary time and reflect in a safe-space on the key issues we identified at the beginning of the therapy.“  (Michael)

„I contacted Gabriel in a very complicated moment of my life, especially in my marriage. His clear, pragmatic vision of the situation helped me to make sense of what was going on, and seeing the crisis as an opportunity to grow. I switched from being a victim of the circumstances to a more empowered role: I gained economic independence through opening my company, I changed my professional profile, but also I managed to put my marriage in a much healthier place. All of this wouldn't had been possible without Gabriel's advice.”  (Sofia)

"Arriving to a new country, Gabriel proved to be an excellent family counsellor. We all went through personal challenges during this time. With two third-culture teenagers in a country where we did not speak the local language, it was enormously helpful to have a counsellor to speak with as we experienced the various ups and downs of the transition. Away from friends and family, Gabriel was an indispensable resource. He is a highly professional, intuitive guide who helped smooth the path of communication in our family."  (Jessica)
