I am a member of: UKCP, EABP, LSBP (London School of Biodynamic Psychotherapy and I hold the European Certificate of Psychotherapy
In 1993 I became a qualified Sivananda Yoga teacher
In 1998 I finished my 5 years training with the European School for Biodynamic Psychology and Erogenetics (E.S.B.P.E.) in Germany and qualified as a Psychotherapist and Body Oriented Psychotherapist
In 2003 I qualified as a Therapist for Biodynamic Massage and Deep Draining (deep therapeutic massage)
In 2009 I joined the Ridwhan School, which is a school for spiritual and psychological development
I am a Buddhist and pratice Mindfulness as part of my daily life and work
I trained in spiritual emergency treatment
I have worked with heavy trauma and diverse states of Mental Health, especially during my 8 years in the Mental Health Project and Charity, Space for You, Penzance.
A lot of it has already been said in the introductory chapter.
I work body oriented, wholistic and with a great sense of respect for the individual soul.
I work with all issues clients might bring to me, my view is, that it is always about the person and not so much about the diagnoses. It is about meeting You and from there we can look at the issues.
If I had to name any 'specialities' on top of the body oriented nature of my work, I would say that I like to work with people, who are really interested to make a change in their lifes, overcome or at least manage trauma, anxiety or depression.
I work with fear and anger, compassion and love.
I also work with couples.
What happens during treatment?
Talking is still a main tool in my therapy practice. But alongside the mind with its capacity to articulate and analyse, I will invite the whole of your Being to be present. We will work with body awareness, learning how to sense what your body feels like and to notice its messages. In order to do that I might invite you to close your eyes, deepen your breath or if appropriate to lie down. We might do specific exercises to support
your grounding or the way you set boundaries. Sometimes I use touch (only in agreement with the client) and I might use a particular massage: Biodynamic Massage, also called Gerda Boyesen Method. It is a very therapeutic massage, that has been especially developed to work with the mind/body connection.
Essence - Simply Being - or: who are we really?
When we embark in deep psychotherapy, sometimes we find ourselves on the path of spiritual growth and a search for our true self. Metaphysical questions might open up and the journey becomes its own purpose. Spiritual development and coaching can be part of a treatment agreement. Mindfulness techniques and Meditation are both very nourishing for the soul and the nervous system and can take us beyond the realm of the thinking mind into Simply Being.
