Ursula Funke-Kaiser studied law and worked as a judge for several years before she underwent extensive training in body and breath therapy, art therapy, and followed her interest in Jungian psychotherapy. She is certified as a healing practitioner for psychotherapy. After she met Dr. Peter Levine, her professional life focused on trauma therapy with Somatic Experiencing. She has worked with Dr. Levine in trainings in Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, and Israel, and she teaches the SE Professional Training in Germany.
Ursula was member of the Board of the German Association of Somatic Experiencing and her special interest lies in bringing SE forward in the medical health system.
