Four Elements DMTM ~ is an embodied psychotherapy group based in Chiswick, West London.

This group is aimed at those who wish to work in an embodied way – exploring the mind-body-emotions connection, within the context of a small therapeutic group (approximately 8 individuals).

  • Explore the relationship between our mind, emotions and body
  • Get in touch with and begin to release emotional material stored in the body

Four Elements DMTM uses the Transpersonal Psychotherapy model based on the elements: Earth / Water / Air / Fire. In helping people to connect with these four outer elements, they are encouraged incrementally to re-connect with the inner landscapes:

Earth = Body. Water = Emotions, Air = Mind, Fire = Energy

As we explore and move through these four aspects of ourselves, various techniques are utilised to process and release emotion, blockages and constriction that are held within the body-mind. You can read more about Four Elements DMTM here.

Embodied Psychotherapy is therapeutic framework that draws on a range of techniques from the practices of body-focused psychotherapy, dance movement psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, somatic trauma therapy, neuroscience, creative arts, transpersonal psychotherapy and mindfulness.

Katarina Gadjanski BSc (Hons) LCCH Dip. Psych UKCP, the founder of Four Elements DMTM, is a fully accredited member of of UK Council for Psychotherapy. Her practice integrates Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Integrative Embodied Psychotherapy, Psychosynthesis and Dance & Movement Therapy.

Katarina is also a co-founder of the Institute of Embodied Psychotherapy: www.embodiedpsychotherapy.org.uk

Katarina had been practicing various forms of meditation for over 25 years, so she was particularly interested in bringing the therapeutic elements of meditation into psychotherapeutic work.  She also has background in music and dance and often use 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.
