    Embodied Psychotherapy

I offer an integrative and embodied approach to psychotherapy, based on Process Oriented Psychology. Sessions will be responsive and tailored to your needs. They can be talking based, as with many other therapies, but might also include working with a dream, a body symptom, movement, role play, voice work or drawing. Or it might not, depending on what feels right for you.
 

My approach adds the opportunity of bringing in an embodied focus and felt sense of difficulties and insights. In my experience, and research suggests likewise, this embodied awareness greatly helps people in gaining insight and meaning.

Safe,  Supportive and Creative

I offer a supportive and creative space to understand and unfold difficult life events, to make sense of long held patterns, to transform and to grow. In the end, what will happen is very much up to what will feel safe and right for both of us. As a trainee psychotherapist in my 4th year of training I receive regular supervision, and my practice is based on many years of being a mental health social worker, embodied movement and anatomy teacher, performer and long time human being.

Interested? Great, so am I. Seems like we are both in the right place.

Process Work

Process Oriented Psychology

Also called process work, is a depth psychology theory and set of techniques with its roots in Jungian Psychology and Somatic Psychology. It uses awareness to track psychological and physical processes that illuminate and possibly resolve inner, relationship, team, and world issues.

Its methods allow us to perceive the creative nature of processes, even within apparently very disturbing and complex situations. Processwork is a dynamic orientation and method of working with the challenges of your inner life and outer life events.

Psychotherapeutic Process Work is suitable for individual, couple and group work. It includes working with dreams, body experience and illness, including remote states of consciousness.

Process Work uses awareness or mindfulness practices to link inner work with social action. Its methods are also useful for facilitating organisations and communities dealing with conflict, recovery and social change.

BMC

Body-Mind Centering™

An Embodied Approach to Movement, Body and Consciousness.

“The mind is like the wind and the body like the sand: if you want to see how the wind is blowing, you can look at the sand.”

— Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

BMC is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. Its uniqueness lies in the specificity with which each of the body systems can be personally embodied and integrated, the fundamental groundwork of developmental repatterning, and the utilization of a body-based language to describe movement and body-mind relationships.

For individual somatic movement education session lasting an hour please contact me.

About

About

I am trainee psychotherapist in my fifth year of training (given that many other trainings are only three years this does seem long but also exciting and enriching). Besides practicing psychotherapy I work as a mental health social worker in London, teach embodiment, somatics and dance in classes and collaborate in specific projects and institutions (for example as a faculty member in the Institute of Somatics and Social Justice). I offer individual hands on sessions, being qualified in Body-Mind Centering™

I have an MA in Community Arts, having participated in and designed performance projects, particpatory video projects and community performances. I have performed in England, Scotland and the US and I also have contributed in and run community drumming workshops in the UK and the Middle East.

As a facilitator I have experience of large group faciliation through consensus models and more recently through Process Oriented Psychology.

I am passionate about what I do and I offer a creative, personal, humorous and empathic approach to my practice. With a blend of embodied knowledge, clinical practice and open mindedness and curiosity.
