Andrea Sturm

About Me[edit | edit source]

I am a physiotherapist since 2005, a registered member of Physio Austria, and mainly working with children and adults in the neurological field. In 2009 I founded the private practice FREIRAUM Physiotherapy, which I handed over to a colleague in 2019. I did Masters degrees in Education Sciences and Spiritual Theology in Interreligious Process at the University of Salzburg. Currently I am a PhD Student in Educational Sciences at the Inter-University College Graz.

Since 2018 I am a Learning Architect at Physioplus and created their Ethics and Mental Health Programmes. Before entering the profession I was trained and working in the commercial field and absolved a training in psychological counceling, with a deeper interest in trauma and systemic constellation work. For several years I also ran branch of an organic bakery in Cologne, Germany and worked voluntarily at an organic farm on the weekends.
