I offer individual long and short term psychotherapy and counselling in South London- Brixton. I practice Integrative Psychotherapy. This is a multi-model approach, combining various schools of thought and therapy practice.
I believe there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ and by having a range of perspectives to draw on I am better equipped to work with the specific needs of each individual person.
I always aim to create a supportive, confidential and non judgmental environment where you feel listened to and able to bring whatever you wish to work on. I want to provide welcoming, warm working atmosphere for you to pursue positive changes in your life.
I strongly believe in clients’ ownership of the therapy. The client has the answers for her/his questions and problems and I provide a creative environment and a guidance to the place where he/she can discover them more easily.
I offer an opportunity for the client to reflect creatively on her/his issues. I believe that creativity can provide a new perspective on old problems and patterns, it can help to express feelings deeply buried, forgotten or not easily understood and can introduce flow to the areas where the client feels stuck. I often invite clients to use different art media in the session – draw/paint, sandtray figures, clay, movement, sound. No previous experience with the arts necessary. This is always an open invitation not a requirement. I am committed to finding ways how to work the best with each client-with or without the use of the arts.
I trained as Integrative Arts Psychotherapist at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education in London and I hold MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in the Therapeutic Application of the Arts.
I have experience of working therapeutically in the NHS mental health services (acute mental health ward at CNWL NHS trust) and in the community based counselling services.
I currently work in a specialised trauma service for survivors of sexual abuse in north London and in private practice in south London.
I am also trained CATT level 2 practitioner – this is a short post traumatic stress focused treatment for single event trauma.
