I have been working as a relational body psychotherapist since 1998 and currently maintain a private practice in both Waterloo in south London and Muswell Hill in north London.
I aim to listen to what people tell me and to what is absent from their story; to what people say in words and to what their bodies express. This means that in some situations we may focus more specifically on the body’s presence or absence in one’s moment to moment experience.
My work includes working with people who find themselves trapped in cycles of violence, shame and loss of direction. Recently I have been working with couples to improve their communication, intimacy and aliveness as well as finding ways in helping them deal with loss. Other aspects of my work include assisting couples that wish to find respectful ways to separate and find productive ways to co-parent their children.
As a supervisor I am particularly interested in helping practitioners include the communication of the body in their practice through deep listening to their own and their client’s bodily expressions. My aim is to both enrich learning and deepen the listening to self and other.
My work is informed by a relational and integral approach that aims to relate different theories and ways of working with the experiences that emerge within the therapeutic relationship. In practice this includes perspectives, which are referred to as humanistic (body psychotherapy and gestalt), relational psychoanalysis, attachment theory, trauma work as well as current thinking in neuroscience.
I work with students to CEOs, the unemployed to newly retired, young parents and those struggling to finish that degree, veterans of combat or those bullied in the workplace, or those who have lost a significant relationship, and many more.
I am inspired by a love of healing and learning and I am interested in what is effective as well as what isn’t. Having been exposed to the cruel realities of war and political conflict in my twenties I became deeply aware of the immense suffering we are capable of inflicting on each other.
