Mark Rietema (Integrative & Embodied Psychotheray)
Embodied and integrative psychotherapy tailored to your needs. I offer a creative and supportive space to explore difficult life events, to make sense of long-held patterns, to transform and to grow.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, a mental health social worker, group facilitator and movement teacher.
Sessions can be talking based, as with many other therapies, but might also include working with a dream, a body symptom, movement, role-play, voice work, or drawing.
Process Oriented Psychology offers the opportunity for an added focus of bringing in an embodied, felt sense of difficulties and insights. In my experience, and research suggests likewise, this embodied awareness greatly helps people in gaining insight and meaning. All session will look at unfolding the creative pattern that underlie often seemingly disturbing, chaotic or painful experiences.
Looking to try therapy? Please feel free to contact me and set up a trial session. I look forward to hearing from you.
