Lynda Pabari Integrative Psychotherapist (PG DIP) (DIP SW) UKCP, HCPC
I am a UKCP, Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Supervisor. I have worked therapeutically with teenagers, families, adults, and elders within the NHS, education, the charitable sector and privately since 1994.
Sometimes we need to cope with things that happen to us or within us. It can be difficult to explain what is happening internally. This may be seen as a change in a pattern of behavior, mood, appetite, confusion or conflict in relationships. My creative approach to psychotherapy can help to facilitate the connection between mind-body-environment and help to ease suffering, increase fulfillment in relationships and create sustained change.
I have expertise in working safely with trauma, symptoms of chronic anxiety and depression, attachment, personality process including emotionally unstable, men and women's issues, loss and grief, accidents, new diagnosis, long term conditions, gender, autism, anger, agoraphobia, medically unexplained symptoms, and other areas.
I offer psychotherapy/counselling and supervision both indoors or outdoors. If environmental therapy interests you, follow the eco-therapy link below. I offer short-term or long-term psychotherapy.
I am a member of the UK interfaith network and have benefited from two intercultural learning exchanges within the psychotherapy network in Delhi, India and Istanbul, Turkey.
Please feel free to make contact if you have any queries about what I am able to offer.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a post-graduate (Level 7), mind-body-environment oriented psychotherapist. I am qualified in relational gestalt and developmental psychotherapy, at Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Institute. I am a certified supervisor (creative approach), working across modalities. I hold a certificate in environmental-therapy and offer psychotherapy, counselling, and supervision outdoors as well as indoors. I have a certificate in spiritual companionship.
My aim is to follow the moment by moment experience: thoughts, feelings, sensations, beliefs, images, and memories to support embodied awareness. Developing awareness of patterns of behavior, held in the body and between therapist-client, can lead to a transformation and an understanding of emerging needs. I bring a creative approach: psycho-drama, visualization, breathwork, working with objects and images, writing, and mindfulness.
I have expertise working with the effects of childhood trauma in adult life. I trained with American trauma specialist Babette Rothschild in Dublin, follow the link below. I work effectively with managing flashbacks, anxiety, depression, dissociation, triggers and directly with traumatic events.
