The theoretical foundation underpinning my clinical practice comes from four years training in Relational Transactional Analysis (TA) two years training in Somatic Psychotherapy and over twenty years experience working with individuals, couples and groups.
Relational TA incorporates theories of the development of self, attachment and character structures which can be applied to a broad spectrum of clients and symptoms.
Somatics is a body-oriented psychotherapy where our experience of our bodily senses informs and guides our work.
My style of psychotherapy works with the intra-psychic structure of the individual and relationship dynamics to build the clients relationship with self and others. Each therapy is unique and personally tailored to the clients specific needs.
Treatment goals include symptomatic relief and structural change.
