About me: Psychotherapist Maja Trendle

Maja Trendle, Psychologist, Psychotherapist from Zug

I am warm, engaged, and focused. Other adjectives that describe me are: empathetic, creative and perceptive. 


I grew up by the Zurichsee and moved to Kanton Zug in 2011. After completing my studies in psychology at Zurich University, I trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This has allowed me to use my joy of working with people, my empathy, my inquisitive mind-set and problem-solving attitude in the work I do every day. 


Further training in emotion focused psychotherapy has added on to my wide spectrum of psychotherapeutic skills and allows me to tailor my therapy to individual clients and their needs. This includes further training in treatment of episodic and chronic depression (IPT, CBASP), and many years of psychotherapy experience at the clinic Zugersee, including on a unit that specialises in psychotherapy and treatment of depression.
