Antigone Ikkos-Serrano

Placing connection and understanding at the heart of my practice, I offer a psychodynamic, person centred approach to psychotherapy based on Jungian principals. 

As a Sesame trained drama and movement therapist and fellow of the Neuropsychoanalyisis Association, I use a blend of psychology, movement, dramaturgy, stories and neuroscience to support my clients in building a more integrated understanding of themselves. 

By using the arts as an explorative tool, truths that are hidden within the depths of the psyche may be revealed in a safe and containing way. In offering unconscious processes a form; be that through art, movement, or any other creative medium, our internal stories may be revealed to us. This can form a deeper understanding of who we are and give us the tools to make the changes we want for ourselves. 

My interest in neuroscience and training in neuropsychoanalysis and neuro-dramatic-play enables me to understand psychological and creative processes from a neurological perspective. I therefore facilitate the psychotherapy from both a holistic and science led perspective. Through the act of creation, we are able to retune our neural pathways forming healthier patterns of thought and a more autonomous relationship with the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us.
