I am an experienced Core Process psychotherapist working with adults and registered with the UKCP.
I have practices in both Brighton (Fiveways) and Lewes (Cliffe High Street)
Therapy can be short-term (6 - 12 weekly sessions) and focused on a particular issue or longer term. Longer term work is helpful if there are more long standing difficulties which may have their origins in childhood or later traumatic events..
Therapy offers a space where you can bring yourself, whatever your perception of this might be, and know it will be held with compassion.
My primary training is in Core Process psychotherapy which integrates the wisdom of Buddhist psychology with western personality theory, psychodynamic and psychotherapy skills.
At its heart Core Process is a mindfulness-based somatic approach for working with personal difficulties.
I have additional certified trainings in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1) and Brainspotting (Phases 1 and 2); both are somatic modalities for working with trauma.
Training, qualifications & experience
MA Core Process Psychotherapy
While addressing the cognitive and emotional aspects of a persons distress, the Core Process approach also attends to the physiological elements. Our moment to moment experiences, the joyful as well as the difficulties, are mediated through the body. By attuning to the language of the body in addition to cognition/ thoughts and emotions we tap into a deeper vein of our experience.
Research shows that trauma and early attachment problems profoundly affect the brain-body and that symptoms are often somatically driven.
Level 1 Certificate in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma
Studied the above with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute.
Brainspotting. Phases 1 and 2
All are somatic approaches(brain-body based).Sensorimotor and Brainspotting are more focused on working with trauma.
