Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy. Movement Psychotherapist
I offer individual psychotherapy for children, young people and families. My focus is around supporting clients to think about their relationships, positive aspects of their lives and strengths alongside sharing concerns. I am also an Iyengar yoga teacher and believe that the body is an important entity when exploring our emotional and psychological selves. Bringing together the mind and body through a variety of models including mindfulness, body and movement psychotherapy, narrative, systemic, person centred and psychodynamic approaches. I believe that people are experts of their own lives and I aim to help clients experience that, working collaboratively with them.
I have over ten years post qualifying practice with both adults and children. I also offer support online or on the telephone. I practice in Ealing privately and also work for the NHS in a children and adolescent mental health disability service in Hackney where a large percentage of children referred are under 5 providing me with experience with infants presenting developmental concerns and older children with needs also. I also work on a neonatal unit which has enabled me to work closely with parents and babies born prematurely or sick full term, babies. I am passionate about my work with mothers and babies and have furthered my skills in this area through my training in Video Interaction Guidance (VIG). Currently I am training as a VIG supervisor.
