Nerine is a counsellor, psychotherapist and yoga instructor who is deeply committed to helping others enhance their lives by nurturing mental and physical health. With an approachable, warm and caring personality, Nerine creates a supportive environment for her clients’ development. She specialises in a psychodynamic psychotherapy known as the Conversational Model. The theoretical framework of the Conversational Model depends mainly on the development of self in relationship, and the integration of unconscious traumatic memory. It has integrated psychoanalytic understanding with research in the fields of trauma and developmental theory, linguistics, memory and neurophysiology. Nerine believes in the intrinsic potential of all human beings for self-realisation. Nerine will help you discover your own potential and facilitate the creation of a happier, healthier you.
