Mag Renate Dosanj

Renate completed her Masters Degree, with a specialisation in Psychological Assessment and Applied Psychometrics, at the University of Vienna and later went on to complete her postgraduate training to become a licensed Clinical and Health Psychologist (Austrian Ministry of Health).

She has worked with both adults and children over the last few years before deciding to open her own practice dedicated to serving the English speaking community living abroad.

Renate was born in Zimbabwe and also spent time growing up in Kenya and Canada. She moved to Austria to attend University and has now lived in Vienna since 1997. Her own international upbringing has provided her with a great understanding of both the difficulties and benefits of having an international childhood and also a great sensitivity for different cultures.
