DURGA MENON 

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

 In my time with you, I hope to co-create a holding space where we can navigate through the waves that ebb and flow at the shores of your inner world, exploring vocabulary that can begin the conversation between you and yourself.

 

Our sessions will help bring your patterns to life, to understand how to evolve from them or accept them as they are.

MY APPROACH 

  • Psychodynamic Lens and Relational Psychotherapy:

Reflective thinking and insights are born from the (therapeutic) relationship co-created between us over time. Therapeutic conversations allow me to understand how your childhood patterns have shaped and aided you in coping so far.

  • Non-diagnostic and Context-oriented: I rely on the client's psychosocial context and lived experiences of mental health, to facilitate the creation of vocabulary concerning a person's narrative and social location.

  • Trauma-informed and Queer-affirmative

  • Democratic Therapeutic Community Methodology: I view you, the client as an equal contributor to the collaborative process of therapy. Some of the values from the DTC approach that aid me in holding a therapeutic space are containment, balance, process-oriented dialogue, respect, and communication.

  • BACP ethical guidelines contribute to how I hold therapeutic spaces responsibly.
