Theodora is an Integrative Child and Adolescent psychotherapist. She combines different approaches such as psychodynamic, existential, attachment based therapy , mindfulness and humanistic models. The method she uses, varies according to the individual and the presenting issues.
In the therapy room apart from talking, various creative media are incorporated whilst working with clients such as art, play, mindfulness, sand therapy in order to facilitate the exploration and expression of feelings and thoughts.
When working with children, parents are often involved in the process by means of regular meetings.
This gives parents an opportunity to discuss further any problematic areas and review progress.
