My therapeutic approach is a combination of psychodynamic, group analytic and integrative embodied and creative thinking. This means that during the course of our work I will be drawing on several models and I will be thinking about: how an individual’s personal history is informing their current thinking and ways of relating; past and/or present relationships; emotional life; specific symptoms and other areas of concerns to do with the presenting problems. I will invite you to think how thoughts, feelings and behaviours link in order to make sense of particular situations that you might find yourself in. I will offer you my own insights drawing on my experience and theoretical knowledge that my professional trainings help me to ongoingly develop.
I will also encourage you to pay attention to your bodily self throughout our sessions. This means noticing bodily sensations, ways of holding yourself, movement or gestures. This will also include allowing various associations and memories, images, dreams to enter our sessions too. If helpful and wanted, I offer the possibility of bringing a creative body mapping and/ or movement work to be part of our psychotherapy sessions.
For those who are interested in focusing on specific goals and dealing with illness-related symptoms, I can offer more structured ways of working (e.g. therapy geared toward eating disorders, involving elements of cognitive behavioural, MANTRA, solution-focused, compassion-based therapy and similar approaches).
Alongside individual work I offer group sessions, workshops and/ or reflective practice for teams, and clinical supervision (individual or group).
