My Approach

My therapeutic approach is creative, expressive, humanistic, psychodynamic and person-centred, based on the secure attachment and relationship with the therapist influenced mainly by Bowlby, Winnicott, Jung, Rogers and work of Peter Levine. My DMP inspiration is in Kestenberg, Bartenieff and Chase. The mindfulness and active imagination is underpinning my work. I am aslo Authentic Movement and Dance of Awareness Facilitator using Jungian active imagination approach.
