Support with complex family dynamics, ancestral trauma, relationship issues - family or peers, body image, self-identity. Migrant issues. Support of grieving / bereaved, life after loss. Couple therapy: assisting couples to consciously begin or renew a relationship, re-discover the meaning of a partnership, traumatised couples - recovery work, and / or supporting those needing to consciously un-couple.
Attachment-based therapy; emotion-focused / body-based techniques (trauma-informed, IPNB and Polyvagal Theory) and Breathwork (including Grof's Holotropic Breathwork TM), expressive arts psychotherapy and Depth Psychology / Jungian Psychotherapy. Developmental Model and EFT for couple therapy.
I support self-discovery and self-expression by offering respectful, compassionate and attuned presence, therapeutic skills and experience.
