Jenni de Knoop - Psychotherapy through movement Sussex

I am a registered movement psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, lecturing on the masters dance movement psychotherapy programme at Roehampton University and working in private practice. Having worked for 11 years at the Priory Roehampton on the adult and adolescent eating disorder unit (and in various NHS posts), I have developed a special interest in disordered eating and body image. I am very interested in the relationship between body image and self-esteem and run body image workshops for young girls and women in the community, supporting them to cultivate a more compassionate and accepting relationship with their body. I believe movement psychotherapy is a powerful, dynamic and creative therapeutic approach, offering not only the opportunity to think about change but also to move towards it. By using a flexible, relational approach and creative interventions, I encourage clients to explore new perspectives and alternative coping strategies, expand resources and to work towards feeling more comfortable and safe in their own body and in relationship with others. Please visit my website for further information on my approach and how movement psychotherapy could be helpful. In private practice I offer both short and long term individual and group psychotherapy in West Sussex (John Pears Pavilion, Wall Hill Road, Ashurst Wood) and London, Wandsworth (Samsara Body and Mind, 205 Merton Road, SW18 5EE).

Referral Criteria & Process

Self referral or via GP or Consultant by telephone or email. An initial assessment will help us to consider whether my approach is suitable for you. I also welcome referrals from relatives of those suffering from eating disorders looking for support.
