Claudia Businaro, MA MBACP UKCP registered
Psychosynthesis & Education Trust
92-94 Tooley Street
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and I work with individuals, couples and families. My work is integrative and influenced by my previous studies in Eastern and Western philosophy and by my interest in spiritual practices.
I work both face-to-face and on Skype.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and member of BACP. I hold a Masters in Psychotherapy and I have trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy at the Munro Centre in London, NHS, where I have worked for several years as a honorary therapist. I currently collaborate with a rehabilitation centre in Wiltshire where I work with individuals in recovery from addiction and their families. I also work as a group and individual therapist for an online Rehabilitation centre.
I also hold a Masters in Indian philosophy and I studied Yoga philosophy and techniques for many years.
I am interested in the area of shame and shame-based dynamics like compulsive behaviours. I have recently given a workshop for parents in recovery in London, Tower Hamlet, which was mostly focused on shame, its neurophysiology and the strategies which can help to overcome its paralysing effects.
In my work I often make use of guided imageries and dreams as tools to access the less conscious aspects of the psyche, but I am also interested in CBT and DBT as ways to understand and modify unhelpful behaviours.
