counselling and psychotherapy in blackheath and queens park

How I work

 

I am an integrative counsellor. This means that I work simultaneously on many levels, attending to your thoughts and feelings as well as your physical experience and the dynamics of our relationship.

 

This also means that I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches and skills and actively seek a way of combining them to suit you as an individual. 

 

I offer both open-ended therapy and short-term interventions focused on a particular issue.

 

When considering therapy it is natural not to be clear about the lenght or depth of engagement that is right for you. During your first appointment we will discuss your individual situation and structure a flexible plan to meet your needs.

 

Therapy can be an immensely rewarding journey leading to profound discoveries. I will be delighted to share it with you.

My qualifications and interests

 

My interest in psychotherapy originates from my background in clinical psychology and I am drawn to exploration of how different disciplines, paradigms and ways of working meet and enrich one another.

 

I am fascinated by concepts of embodiment, intersubjectivity and empathy. For my Master's Thesis I completed a research project exploring the subject of embodied connection and mutual influence within the therapeutic relationship.

 

Over the years I have worked in various private-sector settings, mainly with adults but also with children.Today my work is divided between NHS Psychotherapy Service and my private practice.

 

My experience has allowed me to develop a degree of expertise in working with:

  • childhood trauma and attachment issues
  • emotional and physical abuse within family
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • trauma and dissociation
  • difficulties with intimacy and relationships
  • life transitions and loss

 

Some of my professional interests include:

  • contemporary psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • body psychotherapy and non-verbal communication in therapy
  • neuroscience research and in this context: intersubjectivity, relationality, attachment and development.

 

I continually work on my own personal and professional integration through ongoing commitment to self-development, supervision and specialised training.

 

I am a member of BACP and accredited member of UKCP and abide by their code of ethics.
