Dr. Marjorie Kinney, PhD

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST | HYPNOTHERAPIST | LECTURER | COACH

Born and raised in Wisconsin, USA, I bring a strong scientific background to my coaching practice, with a focus on behavioral psychotherapy during both my master's and doctoral training. This foundation allows me to seamlessly integrate the latest research into my coaching work.

Beyond coaching and lecturing, I'm passionate about Hypnobirthing, inspired by years of working in early parent-child attachment. I believe that by preparing parents for the best possible birth experience, we set the stage for a joyful start to both baby and parents' lives.

"To heal ourselves, we must unite magic with science." - Carly A. Hammerschlag, M.D.

Currently residing in Germany with my three wonderful children, I continue to pursue my dedication to helping others on their transformative journeys.

International Mental Health Network for Expatriates (MENTAL-HEALTH.NETWORK) is a registered charity based in Germany. We have a deep understanding of the mental health issues that expatriates face, as we have experienced them firsthand. We are familiar with the sense of isolation and longing that comes with leaving one’s home country and adapting to life in a foreign place. Our team offers crucial assistance and empowering guidance to individuals who are facing challenges such as language barriers, cultural shock, intercultural conflicts, prejudice, bullying, and abuse. Our team is dedicated to promoting mental wellness and supporting the expatriate community in overcoming the obstacles they may encounter while living abroad.
