I am an experienced counsellor trained in psychodynamic therapy, registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with 9 years experience in agencies, organisations, and private practice.
I work with adults who want to understand themselves in-depth and wish to benefit from what this self-awareness means.
Whilst my core training and practice is psychodynamic, I also find attachment theory useful in my work. Our relationships with others mirror our first relationships in infancy and exploring our attachment styles and patterns can give us insight into understanding ourselves and how we relate to others. I am interested in neuroscience and the plasticity of the brain and welcome contemporary research confirming we are able to change the way we think and behave by retraining our neural pathways which may have become stunted or misdirected in early experiences.
I am also interested in the relationship between the mind and the body and the way they both work together to give us information about ourselves.
Working with me provides a space to explore your inner self, who you think you are, discovering your true self on a unique journey.
I believe that giving oneself space and time for contemplation and reflection is vital for our optimum physical and mental health.
This space allows the chance to become aware of how we are feeling, in turn, helping us to tolerate and manage our emotions, feel less stressed and calmer.
My aim is to help each client find their authentic self and become self-reliant leading to a more fulfilling and free life.
As well as one-to-one therapy I am currently developing and co-facilitating local workshops for women on the relationship of mental strength and boxing. For more information visit: https://www.animentis.co.uk/
