I have trained in neuroscience and attachment. I am particularly interested in how the workings of the brain and our early developmental relationships affect us later on in our lives. We are now aware of the plasticity of certain areas of the brain, and new research shows that enriched environments, such as psychotherapy, can contribute to increased connectivity and the potential for change in the neural networks.
I am interested, and have completed some training, in the role of mindfulness in our daily lives. It is my experience that the practice of mindfulness can help with the symptoms of anxiety and depression. I sometimes bring mindful practice into the work.
I am qualified as an SEP (Somatic Experiencing Practitioner) following 3 years study in Stockholm, Sweden and London, UK.
