Yvonne LentgeBody psychotherapy psychotherapist
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. 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 across all sectors.
As a third generation holocaust 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 and intergenerational process. As a woman born in the 1970s I am interested in issues of identity related to sexuality, pregnancy, relationships, motherhood, menopause, childlessness, community and relationship diversity.
