I am a fully registered HCPC and BADth dramatherapist. I offer creative psychotherapy in my private practice in Stoke Newington as well as working for a range of organisations. I am always open to expanding my network and interested in new collaborations both in the UK and abroad.
In my practice I draw upon a variety of different arts. My background is in the figurative arts of painting, sculpture and photography. Later in my life I discovered the performing arts of drama and movement and how powerful they can be in relation to the therapeutic relationship. I trained as a Drama and Movement Therapist at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London.
I am a movement-aware therapist; I believe the way I feel in my body is informed by what is present in between the client and myself. What is communicated non-verbally has often the potential to bypass the channels of language and open new ways of communication.
My work draws upon a critical framework of Jungian Psychology combined with contemporary theories in intersubjectivity and developmental psychology. I am trained in The Sesame method, which draws together analytical psychology to Laban movement, play theories and a mythopoetic approach.
