My name is El and I am an experienced integrative psychotherapist. I am a trained humanistic therapist as well as a Dance Movement Psychotherapist and therefore I predominantly draw from humanistic and psycho-analytic frameworks. I have worked in a range of different settings such as the NHS, charitable organisations, education and the private sector. I now live in Lewisham and work from my home four days a week. I offer a standard rate but can be flexible within reason for low income clients / students. I offer an open and warm environment for all of my clients were we can build a trusting authentic relationship. Sometimes things can become overwhelming and I believe that working creatively can offer alternative perspective to things that start to weigh us down. If you would like to know more about how I work please do not hesitate to contact me.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA in Humanistic Therapy and predominantly worked with abuse survivors during and after my training. I have also worked across several schools with children as young as 5, working mainly with children and family with difficult backgrounds. As my career progressed I began working within the NHS in primary care as a 1-1 therapist treating patients with a range of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Through this I gained a vast knowledge and understanding of working with clients seeking asylum within the UK. During and after my Dance Movement Psychotherapy training (MA) alongside trauma survivors I began working with the homeless community before progressing onto workshops, group works and 1-1 work within detox and rehabilitation addiction hubs. I currently work across Lewisham with young people alongside secondary care addiction work to compliment my private practice. I am a trainee integrative supervisor and hope to be fully qualified in June. Finally, I often run / facilitate CPD events and workshops across London and Nottinghamshire.
