Christina is experienced in both long-term and short-term work in various settings: NHS, charitable organisations, TFL and private practice. She specialises in Integrative Psychotherapy (drawing on all schools of psychology), meaning that therapy can be tailored to suit clients’ personality and needs.
With an understanding that the therapist-client relationship is key for successful therapy, Christina provides a warm and empathic space where individuals can feel safe enough to tell their story. Christina works with her clients to process difficult feelings and to come to a better understanding of their circumstances, so that they can discover what leading an authentic life looks like for them. She encourages her clients to access their inner resources, identifying their core values to offer hope and direction for their future. She works collaboratively with individuals, promoting behavioural transformation through exploring emotional or relationship difficulties, assessing thought-life and analysing past/current events and behaviours.
Having previously worked with children, Christina has a keen interest in attachment-related issues. She understands that even the earliest feeling-states can lead to long-lasting, devastating effects in adult life. These can include approaching relationships in an unhealthy manner or seeking damaging behaviours or coping strategies.
Christina is also interested in issues surrounding race and culture; her personal experience has given her much insight into working with the issues of cross-cultural differences and challenges faced by ethnic minorities. This includes the problems of second-generation children from immigrant families and the impact of transgenerational trauma.
