I am a fully qualified Body Psychotherapist registered with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy); EABP (European Association for Body Psychotherapy) and BPA (Biodynamic Psychotherapy Association), with a private practice in Central London/Bermondsey and online.
In 2012 I qualified as a Biodynamic Massage Therapist and have since become a Committee Member of the ABMT (Association of Biodynamic Massage Therapists) and registered practitioner with CNHC (Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council.
Prior to this I worked for a large corporate company and volunteered some of my time to assist people in distress. I realized how the stress we encounter every day – be it in our work lives, our family lives or other – can deeply affect our well-being and how tapping into our bodies can assist us in identifying our feelings from the onset, build resilience and understanding. This experience has supported my belief in our innate ability to heal and self-regulate but also, it highlighted the crucial role the integration between body, mind and soul has in doing this. These are some of the key principles in Biodynamic therapy which have attracted me to this work. A combination of our past experiences, environment, anxieties and fears however, can inhibit these capacities making us feel stuck; sad; angry; depressed and unfulfilled.
Once I started working as a Body Psychotherapist and Biodynamic Massage Therapist, I noticed the deep link between mind and body and how emotions are experienced, understood and processed at different levels of our being. For this reason, I work on the verbal and non-verbal realms; physical and emotional; conscious and unconscious, to help develop our capacity for independent well-being so that we can be fully present in the world and in touch with our core selves.
I work with a range of people, some simply wishing to meaningfully explore their day to day challenges from a body/mind prospective, others wishing to work on issues from early childhood, inner conflicts, relational challenges, sudden changes in life that are difficult to adjust to and traumatic experiences in adulthood. I provide a space that feels grounded, approachable, safe and supportive. Although I work on a range of issues, I have a particular interest in supporting clients who feel trapped, constricted, triggered or flooded in different aspects of their lives past or present.
I am committed to providing a confidential, professional service, in an open and trusting environment and abide by the code of ethics of my association.
