Miriam Christie

Perinatal counsellor and yoga therapist, based in South East London

About me

I am an integrative counsellor and yoga therapist, working in South Norwood and Sydenham in south-east London. I am also co-founder of the Nurture Hub, a service which provides women with wrap-around pre- and post-natal support at a practical, physical and psychological level.

I have particular expertise in working with people experiencing perinatal mental health issues, depression, anxiety and somatic distress. I am interested in the interwoven relationship between the mind and body and its potential for supporting and nurturing psychological and physical health and healing. I work in a holistic way to help people manage symptoms affecting them the moment so that they are better able to explore past experiences shaping their present.

My therapeutic approach is based on creating an empathic, safe space for you to nurture self-awareness, explore, resolve or reconcile with troubling or distressing feelings and experiences.

I hold a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling, a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I am a Yoga Alliance certified level three yoga practitioner. I also hold specialist training qualifications in pregnancy and postnatal exercise.

I am a professional member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their ethics, standards and practices.
