Matina Karastatira, Psychotherapist in London
Hello, are you looking to explore yourself in a creative way different to other taking therapies? Then this method is for you. I'm a qualified music therapist currently training to become a fellow on using the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (BMGIM). I'm able to offer low cost individual therapy sessions using the BMGIM to individuals who are looking to deepen their understanding of themselves, are looking to enhance their creativity and stimulate self-development. Also individuals who are struggling with emotional difficulties, anxiety, depression, low self- esteem, grief, stress and personal loss.
Having worked both in the community and in the NHS I'm an experienced music therapist working with a variety of issues and difficulties. During the therapy I create a secure and confidential environment where difficult feelings or memories that may emerge are processed in a secure and safe way.
BMGIM is a relaxation based therapy lasting 90'. During the Prelude the issues of the client informs the music program. Next, (s)he is inducted into a relaxed state. During the Music Travel (s)he images to the music. During the Postlude (s)he is brought back & discuss the experience.
