My name is Anna, I am a second year MA student in Dance and Movement
Psychotherapy at the University of Roehampton and I work as a Peer Support Worker at Lambeth Hospital.
My approach with clients is integrative as I believe that we are all different and have different needs from therapy. My goal is to listen and help clients identify and reflect on specific needs so that I can support them in finding the resources to cope and move forward through difficult times. For some individuals this might mean looking at unhelpful patterns rooted in past experiences, for others it could lend more toward a focus on the here and now, and how to be in the present. I aim to meet the individual where they are to increase awareness and confidence and support clients through changes.
Dance and Movement Psychotherapy is a creative relational process which allows individuals to express themselves through their bodies. Sometimes words are not enough to express difficult emotions and feelings, I believe in the power of creative potential in the therapeutic space to reconnect with oneself and explore relevant challenges. Therefore, I use verbal language as well as movement, drawing, writing, and painting when working clients.
I am registered student member of the UKCP and the ADMP and adhere to their codes of practice.
