I am a UKCP-registered attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist, and emotionally focused couples therapist. I have an advanced diploma in couples and psychosexual therapy and am a registered art therapist. I am a member of the Forum for Independent Psychotherapists (FiP) and am a registered Supervisor. I work in Central Cambridge, the City of London and London Bridge.

I offer a confidential and caring place in which to talk about personal and professional difficulties in either short or long term psychotherapy with individuals, couples and young people. I am trained in Individual and Couples Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), which I believe plays a vital part in the therapy relationship, alongside sensitive understanding, respect and creativity, and creates the greatest potential for healing.

Undoing Aloneness:
Introduction to Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

£ 150
Bowlby Centre, Islington London

Presenters: Angela Massucco,
Attachment based Couples and Individual Psychotherapist UKCP

and: Fumie Kamitoh,
Japanese Certified Clinical Psychologist based in Tokyo

In this one day workshop we will outline the four state AEDP model of change as developed by Dr Diana Fosha in New York.

AEDP is an attachment-based and experiential way of working with individuals that aims to Undo Aloneness at the core of client self and fully encourages positive growth in their relationships. By working with trauma and loss and the painful consequences, therapist and client work together to discover places within that have always been strong.

Angela and Fumie will present this four state model and the specific elements that assist accelerated healing with video tape/s of a session/s revealing how AEDP can move a client from a distant and defended stance to gradually softening and the release of authentic emotion. This one day workshop aims to offer practical, (including work in pairs) and powerful, creative skills for your work as a therapist.
