Katarina Gadjanski BSc (Hons) LCCH Dip. Psych UKCP

Katarina is a fully accredited member of of UKCP, she is the founder of Four Elements DMTM and co-director of the Institute of Embodied Psychotherapy. She founded Chiswick Psychotherapy, Counselling and Homeopathy Clinic in 2003. Katarina has a therapeutic background in transpersonal psychotherapy, integrative psychosynthesis, mindfulness, dance & movement and embodied psychotherapy. She had undertaken extensive research and training in the area of somatic therapies and neuroscience in relation to trauma work. In addition to her private practice Katarina facilitates psychotherapeutic and personal development groups, CPD trainings, dance & movement and meditation workshops and retreats in the UK and internationally.

Katarina had been practicing various forms of meditation for over 25 years, so she is particularly interested in bringing the therapeutic elements of meditation into psychotherapeutic work. She also has background in music and dance and often uses creativity, music, movement, art and guided visualisations in her work with clients. She discovered that this kind of approach offers clients a greater platform to explore themselves in a new connected way (body, mind, emotion & spirit) and to evolve from processing just verbally and conceptually, to a more holistic self-awareness.

In her private practice Katarina works with people from all walks of life, including clients who want to explore their relationship problems, loss of meaning or direction in their life, to those suffering with stress related illness, trauma and anxiety. She has special  interest in working with people who are interested in spirituality and are looking for spiritual guidance, and with creative people who want to explore or reconnect with their creativity or find new ways of self-expression.
