I aim to meet and see you, as and where you are, in a relationship based on equality, unconditional positive regard, compassion and empowerment. I invite inquiry into body-based experiences, to foster self-regulation, trauma resolution, interpersonal skills, embodiment, empathy and greater clarity in mind perception.
Position at Priory
I am a UKCP and BACP accredited transpersonal integrative psychotherapist, working in private practice and as an integrative therapist with Priory.
I hold a diploma and MA in transpersonal counselling and psychotherapy through The Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London, validated by The University of Northampton.
My research MA in transpersonal psychotherapy was inspired by ’The Discipline of Authentic Movement’: a therapeutic and mystical movement practice, which invites its practitioners to follow their kinesthetic sense into spontaneous expressions of their distinct way of being and moving as themselves.
My study was guided by the question: how does embodied movement contribute to consciousness of our essential nature? I sought to explore what might happen if we attend to the body before the mind, allowing movement and direct embodied experience to inform and express what words and concepts cannot.
My arguments reflected on the tendency of western culture to over-value the masculine qualities of logos (reason), whilst relegating the feminine qualities oriented towards sensuous, intuitive, synchronistic, experiential, timeless, nonlinear and relational ways of being, to the unconscious, where our connection to the language and wisdom of our moving body, our humanity and intrinsic interrelatedness to one another and the natural world, is forgotten.
