I am a registered HCPC and BADth drama and movement therapist. I offer creative psychotherapy in my private practice in Stoke Newington as well as working for a range of organisations.
From a background in painting, sculpture and photography, I combine the figurative with the performing arts by integrating elements of phototherapy with authentic movement and therapeutic presence. I trained as a Drama and Movement Therapist at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London and completed training in Phototherapy techniques and Authentic Movement.
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.
