Our Therapists

Claudete Tomaselli

I  am a qualified Integrative Body Psychotherapist,  I combine both approaches adapting my work to the specific needs of my clients.

I trained at Chiron Centre and hold the Certificate in Integrative Body Psychotherapy. I am registered with the UKCP, CABP (Chiron Association of Body Psychotherapists) and AHBMT ) (Association of Biodynamic massage Therapist.

I have a particular interest and experience in working with inter cultural issues, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, feeling of meaninglessness, anger, bullying, sexual issues and bodily symptoms. In my work, I try to be warm, real, spontaneous and always connected with my clients. I feel privileged to learn about my client’s unique way of making sense of the world. I give them space to think about life in their own way and meet them where they are acknowledging their way of being and thinking and accompanying them in their journey during their therapeutic process.

Integrative psychotherapy: The integrative approach includes some of the major theoretical models in psychotherapy: client-centred, gestalt, psychodynamic, relational work, body psychotherapy and solution-focused therapy. In practice, it means that each individual is different and an integrative approach enabled me to use what works best to address the particular issues of each of my clients.

Body psychotherapy is a psychotherapeutic approach that recognises the relationship between the body and the mind. A body psychotherapist will work with what happens at a mind/verbal level as well as with bodily experiences such as posture, movement, gestures, voice and breathing patterns. In practice, I will pay attention to how my clients move, their musculature (chronic pain, rigidity) and to the way they breathe. I work with these elements that are an integrative part of who we are as a human beings. Becoming more familiar with our physicality gives us a better sense of who we are. We can be more grounded, centred and feel more in control.

Biodynamic massage covers a wide range of massage techniques developed to suit the individual’s personality and health needs. It works with the origins and effects of stress. It promotes deep relaxation, improves circulation and increases the flow of energy.

The use of the Biodynamic massage, touching, role play,  body awareness, can lead and open up to an whole and neglected world on information, both for the client and therapist.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle way of working with the body using light touch. Craniosacral Therapy works with the whole person - not just the head - and changes may occur in the mind and spirit during the sessions.

When a Craniosacral Therapist places her hands lightly on you, she is using them to listen to you in much the same way that a counsellor might listen to your words. Craniosacral Therapy supports your body's innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build your underlying energy.

Craniosacral Therapy can help with stress-related conditions, chronic pain conditions, emotional difficulties and physical tension, recovery from surgery, illness and injuries. Because it is so gentle and non-invasive, Craniosacral Therapy is suitable for everyone from newborns to the elderly.

Biography

I have had a lifelong interest in Complementary Therapies and found Craniosacral Therapy to be profoundly powerful and supportive during my own past health difficulties. I offer a friendly, supportive and compassionate environment in which to help clients through their healing process. I am registered with the Craniosacral Therapy Association of the UK.

I was advised to have Craniosacral Therapy following some botched dental work that left me in considerable nerve and jaw pain. The immediate transformation after one Craniosacral Therapy session was a welcome relief and left me utterly astonished. I wanted to know more and find out exactly how this therapy actually works! Throughout my training I discovered that the body is determined to heal itself, given the opportunity to do so - this is what Craniosacral Therapy does, it enables the body to heal itself.

Silvia's particular areas of interest include stubborn or recurring injuries that do not respond to conventional treatment, effects of stress, PTSD, emotional blocks, Chronic Fatigue, recovery from Domestic Abuse, recovery from Narcissistic Abuse, coping with and recovering from workplace bullying and supporting clients through their transitions in life such as puberty, motherhood and menopause and spiritual awakenings.

Gherardo Della Marta 

Hello, my name is Gherardo Della Marta and I am qualified and MBACP registred counsellor  offering counselling and psychotherapy in  Queens park W10, Central London W1W and in South London SW4.

I was born in Italy and I lived there till I was 25 years old working as an accountant

 When I came to England I worked in the travel industry for 5 years and then I decided to train as a therapist. I entered therapy while exploring the values and beliefs most important in my life. Counselling has helped me to become a more self aware, tolerant and reflective person and to achieve a more meaningful life.

The way I work...

My practice is based on valuing the working relationship I have with my clients and supporting them to explore and to understand the issues and concerns most important to them and to help them to deal with these in more constructive ways. I believe that empathy, warmth, listening and understanding can help clients to become more involved in the therapeutic process and also to enhance mutual communication. A helpful and collaborative communication can help clients to achieve more clarity when deciding the steps they need to take to reach their goals.

During an initial consultation you have the chance to see if counselling is for you and i will not push you to enter therapy if this does not feels right.  But if we decide to work together i will support to explore your concerns, issues, feelings, behaviours and emotions that have been troubling you recently or for a long time. I can help you to understand how past experiences have played a negative role in your life and how you have become unhappy, sucked and depressed as a result of these struggles. I can also help you to gain more understanding of how negative thoughts can affects feelings and behaviours. Together we can discuss how these have impacted on your life and I will support you to manage these negative thoughts and to replace them with more alternative ways of thinking. Since March 2013 I have been working as a volunteer counsellor at the Awareness centre as well as in a busy GP surgery in South London helping clients suffering from anxiety and depression. Previously i have worked as a volunteer counsellor and assessor at London Friend (LGBT charity organization) and at the City and East London Bereavement service. I have also worked as a volunteer couple counsellor at Relate as well in a forensic mental health centre.

ThetaHealing®, Reiki & Seichem, Crystal Healing, Deep Holistic Aroma Massage

I was always drawn to the healing arts, and have 14 years experience as a Natural Health Practitioner working in clinics and wellbeing centres practising Massage, Aromatherapy, Reiki and Crystal Healing; working to destress and rebalance, heal and restore, relax the body and calm the mind.  I have studied yoga and meditation, holistic living, astrology and complementary therapies so I have a wide range of disciplines to draw on, and a wealth of information to offer you.

I specialise in Energy Medicine and Vibrational Healing, and my studies have led me to ThetaHealing® which can heal and clear blockages on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  The Theta brainwave is a state of deep meditation, usually only accessed during sleep.  In a session I will take you into Theta with a guided meditation, and identify limiting beliefs through gentle muscle testing.  We can clear beliefs from the subconscious mind; download new positive feelings; and activate dormant strands of DNA.  All you need is the desire to change, and a belief in a Higher Power. 

ThetaHealing® can help you to clear the past, become fully present and create the future that you truly want.  Call for a free consultation and I would be happy to tell you more about how it can work for you.

Chinyere 'Chi' Onyekwere -Bodyworker

I discovered the world of bodywork through a knee injury which developed into a hip problem. I found conventional methods of therapy only worked in the short term. I began to get to know my body through various sports and a lot of yoga. The yoga helped me to understand the injury and heal it. Years later, with an insatiable yoga appetite and curiosity for how my body worked, I trained as a Sivananda yoga teacher and since then have learnt how to work with the body.

The various bodywork techniques I use have been acquired over the years through professional training and continued professional development (CPD). These include Holistic Massage, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Kahuna Hawaiian, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Thai yoga and Reiki. I am currently completing a course in Neuroskeletal Re-alignment therapy. When giving treatments, I draw from the relevant sources to produce a therapy tailored to suit the client.

My experiences in study, life and with clients continually encourage me to look at ailments not just physically but spiritually and mentally, whether it be massage, body alignment, energy healing, yoga or a mindful walk in the park…an individual can journey back to their innate selves and promote healing.

I enjoy giving deep meditative massages as much as working with injuries, and strongly believe in every body’s ability to change and improve, thus impacting and changing lives for the better. Having a treatment is a space for the client to simply be.
