I have been working as a relational body psychotherapist since 1998 and currently maintain a supervision practice at Gower Street in central 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.
Over the years my work has included working with individuals and couples who found themselves trapped in cycles of violence, shame, loss of direction and absence of aliveness in their bodies.
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.
Supervision is also an opportunity to reflect together on the unspoken, marginalised and disavowed aspects and conflicts – whether they are political, racial, class or gender-based.
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 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.
