Psychotherapist registered with two of the UK’s largest professional labs (UKCP and BACP) with over 10 years of professional experience. I receive my clients in London, Canterbury in Kent and also via Skype. I work both individually and with couples (heterosexual and homosexual).
My psychotherapeutic work is integrative / humanistic and influenced by theories of attachment and existential psychotherapy. I consider myself the main objective of exploring with my clients the underlying causes that create anxiety and malaise. I try to develop in my clients a capacity for reflection and analysis in depth of their way of being and of relating to others, values, principles and assumptions that affect their behaviour. This long-term progressive exploration and self-knowledge produces substantial changes in behaviour and the way of seeing one’s life and addressing the problems that life inevitably presents. With the therapy then I help my clients not so much to eliminate problems of life but to face them with greater serenity, clarity and solidity.
My approach to couple psychotherapy is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a type of short or medium term therapy (usually between 8 and 20 sessions) that has very positive results. The main goal in the sessions is to help the couple focus on the emotions underlying by the conflict, thus develop a greater understanding of the dynamic in the couple’s conflict, then slowly change it positively and recreate an emotional intimacy in the couple, and therefore, improve not only communication but the overall quality of the relationship and the sense of mutual understanding.
I also offer a Relationship Coaching service to customers who are looking for a new relationship or have just started attending a new person and feel that they need a space of reflection and growth to avoid repeating past mistakes and destructive behavior patterns.
