Ingrid-Maria Nordgren MBACP
My approach to psychotherapy is Integrative. My professional focus and interest is related to the importance of the relationship between Body and Mind.
Having worked as a Rosen Method Somatic Practitioner for many years I bring this experience into the psychotherapy session by paying specific attention to physical sensations, feelings and the breath of clients as a way of integrating awareness and delving deeper into the body mind, inviting more of unconscious thoughts and feelings to surface during the session time.
I work both in person or by Skype or a combination of both on times and days which are workable for both of us. The time we set aside for sessions may vary from week to week. For therapy to be effective I aim to provide/nurture an environment of trust and rapport to explore the inner life of feelings/relationship/issues.
The service offered is confidential, and to start we would set up an initial interview to discuss what you wanted to explore and hopefully achieve from undertaking psychotherapy. If you felt comfortable and ready to start we would then schedule 6 sessions followed by a review to explore if we felt that the work was purposeful and in line with your expectations.
