Yvonne Lentge Body psychotherapy psychotherapist , KT17
Body Psychotherapy is a holistic approach to psychotherapy which works with the person as a whole - mind, body and soul. We will usually start by talking in chairs and often this takes up the whole session but there are also possibilities to work sitting on the floor, lying on a mat or massage table, standing up or moving around. The way we work will depend on what feels helpful for you at that moment. Together we will explore what supports you to feel secure & grounded, to take your space, to feel comfortable in your own skin, to feel connected to the world around you and to embody your experience of being who you are with fullness and ease.
I work collaboratively and creatively with my clients and have many years' experience as a client myself, having worked with therapists from a variety of different psychotheraputic approaches including Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic, Biodynamic and Body Psychotherapy.
I have 20+ years experience of working in the voluntary sector, to which I am still deeply committed and which informs and nourishes my psychotherapy work in numerous ways. For over 15 years I worked for the mental health charity Mind, helping people to improve their mental and emotional wellbeing, supporting and training volunteers and delivering Mental Health Awareness training to staff teams from organisations accross all sectors.
As a third generation holacaust survivor and second generation East German escapee, born in the UK and living in London, I have a deeply personal interest in issues relating to identity, ancestry, cultural heritage, intergenerational process, survival and inherited trauma. As a woman I am interested in issues of female identity in relation to sexuality, relationships, pregnancy, miscarriage, motherhood, menopause and childlessness. As a person born in the 1970's I am interested in psycho-social process, alienation and new forms of community.
