Mindfulness Based Therapy - Holloway

Core Process Psychotherapy

I am a psychotherapist and trainee supervisor and hold a master’s degree in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy.  

I am accredited with UKCP and a registered member of BACP and adhere to their code of ethics and practice.

Currently, I am also in the accreditation process for EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

Specialisms

One focus of my work is exploring the space where mind and body meet. I believe they are not separate. The body knows. When we connect with and give attention to the body, we learn more about our emotional landscape. By listening to the body, we create pathways to our current and past experiences.

This interest led me to EMDR and the idea that experiences can be ‘locked’ in our bodies. EMDR a method which is effective in treating individuals who have psychological difficulties arising from traumatic experiences, such as assault, road traffic accidents, sexual abuse etc. but is also increasingly used to treat symptoms which are not necessarily trauma-related, such as panic disorder, phobias, performance anxiety, etc.

Another interest of mine is to develop a mindful and embodied awareness of the ‘here and now’, and to discover what it tells us about how we are in relationship to others, the world and ourselves. I consider therapy as a form of partnership between the client and myself, and by enquiring together into the present moment we can recognise old patterns we enact in the present.

My work is holistically. This means I engage with the spiritual dimension if this is part of your perspective. There is scope within the sessions for exploring what meaning you make of your life, and the questions which arise from this.
