Integrative Psychotherapy, Counselling and Supervision in Whitton (Twickenham, Richmond upon Thames)
“A genuine odyssey is not about piling up experiences. It is a deeply felt, risky, unpredictable tour of the soul. ”
― ."Thomas Moore
My approach to therapy places relational engagement at the heart of long term change. I received core psychotherapy training at Re-Vision- this is based on an integrative relational model of depth psychology that draws on Jungian, Existential/Gestalt and Psychodynamic approaches. Just Click Here to visit Re.Vision. This is a soulful, body aware and creative approach to relating to our core struggles and everyday challenges. We will invite in myths, images and dreams as they allow in a creative and less verbal means of connection.
It's all about Relationship.....
Emerging evidence from clinical research suggests that it is the depth and quality of relationship (and not necessarily the type of therapy received) that repairs the wounds of childhood attachment difficulties What is recognised as important and crucial to this process is that you are seen, heard, accepted and even challenged into new ways of being and relating with others and more deeply with yourself.
Holding this in mind, I practise in a relationally oriented and clinically grounded way, offering both long term psychotherapy (6months and above) and time limited counselling (from 3 to 6 months).
At my Whitton (Twickenham) private practice I provide psychotherapy and counselling for adults and adolescents around a range of issues including depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, trauma, addictions and more.
