Elizabeth BlaiseIntegrative psychotherapist
I am a UKCP and BACP registered psychotherapist/counsellor, clinical supervisor and EMDR therapist based in Harley Street and Kings Cross, specialising in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma/PTSD, loss of meaning and direction in life. I am currently working online via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime due to COVID-19.
I offer a safe confidential and warm, relational space and work in an integrative way, meaning that I draw on a range of therapeutic models. These might include psychodynamic (exploring early life or looking to the past for the roots of your current life challenges); humanistic (helping you to access the inner resources already within you so that you can better deal with and resolve the issue you face); CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy - examining your core beliefs about yourself and the world and modifying these where necessary ); existential and Jungian (exploring meaning - of life in general, as well as the meaning of specific issues that you bring to the psychotherapy and counselling sessions).
I offer EMDR therapy and draw on the most recent trauma treatment models. I work with creative imagination techniques (e.g drawing, visualisations) if this is something that feels helpful for you and I have particular expertise in working with dreams.
I often incorporate embodied mindfulness into therapy sessions. Mindfulness is a specific way of intentionally focusing on your thoughts, feelings and body-felt sense, moment by moment. By becoming aware of your thoughts, feelings and body sensations, you can learn how to ‘catch’ and manage your moment-to-moment experience, before becoming overwhelmed by negative thoughts and feelings or caught up in repetitive behaviours.
How we work together always depends on the outcomes you want from the therapy or counselling sessions and what feels most beneficial and useful for you.

A holistic approach very much informs my practice as a psychotherapist and I encourage clients to attend to the whole of who they are (mind, body and spirit). I am a qualified and experienced energy Worker (Reiki Master Trainer), a yoga teacher trainer and a meditation teacher and retreat guide/facilitator.
The option to work with the body in addition to traditional talking therapy is offered as an option if this feels beneficial to the client and is appropriate for the issues being brought to sessions.
