EMOTION-IMAGE THERAPY

Find safe space

for self exploration

Emotion-Image therapy (EIT) is a new method in psychotherapy which addresses chronic negative emotional states and helps solve psychological and psychosomatic issues. The method is based on a principle that any emotional state can be expressed through visual, audial or kinaesthetic images produced in our minds. Thus, a psychodynamic conflict can be resolved through the interaction with those images and their transformation.

How I work

During a session, I first create a space of safety, acceptance and trust in which we can explore the cause of your negative emotional states and search for resolution and relief. Then I gently guide a client through a process of engaging with their inner world, step by step. My approach is respectful, professional and non-judgemental. I attend regular supervision sessions with senior psychologists to ensure I support my clients in the best possible way.

Principles that inform my therapy work:

  • Authentic inner change through a conscious choice

  • Acceptance of the outer world for what it is

  • Compassion instead of self-criticism

  • Curiosity instead of fear

  • Freedom instead of control

  • Relaxation and playfulness instead of tension

  • Self-sufficiency instead of co-dependency

  • Permission to be happy instead of self-pity

  • Life happens for you, not to you

I work with the following inquiries:

  • Anxiety / panic attacks

  • Depression 

  • Trauma

  • Transition and change

  • Fatigue / lack of inner resource

  • Relationship problems

  • Co-dependency

  • Loss of a loved one

  • Loneliness

  • Self-esteem issues

  • Lack of purpose

  • Phobias

  • Psychosomatic symptoms

  • And more

 

If your problem is not on the list, do get in touch  and we will try to find an approach that works for you. If I am unable to help myself, I’d be happy to recommend another therapist who may specialise in your inquiry. 

My rate is £70 per 60-minute session.

I am able to offer discounts on courses of treatment, and for students and those on lower incomes

Anna is very caring and knowledgeable in your work, also gentle and warm. I felt safe during the session thanks to Anna's respect to all my feelings and experience. The result was also impressive! Thank you so much Anna!

I was a little bit nervous about sharing personal experiences and showing vulnerability, but you have such a warm and non-judgmental way of working with people that I was instantly put at ease.
