I have been practicing Core Process Psychotherapy in private practice for 17 yrs and facilitating on-going groups in the UK and Europe. I have been a body therapist for over 30 years. Trauma Therapy developed by P. Levine is a fundamental part of Core Process Psychotherapy. Having had additional training in Trauma and Attachment disorders, EMI, Movement Therapy and Mindfulness practices, I have a particular interest in integrating body awareness and mindfulness in to my work as a psychotherapist.
Psychotherapy can be long or short term. An on-going weekly commitment offers you an opportunity to be heard and deeply supported, as you learn to tolerate feelings and experiences, that have seemed unfamiliar or unbearable. As the therapeutic process unfolds, we also focus on what is thriving. This may be your capacity to be kind and patient with yourself, or your growing sense of resilience, joy, openness and groundedness. Together, we find out how you can experience and accept more of who you really are, and support the development of new and fulfilling ways of living and expressing yourself.
