Kina Malmberg-Lovatt

Kina is a qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor with over ten years experience helping individuals and couples with issues such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks, high levels of stress, grief, event specific and complex trauma and post traumatic stress/PTSD, relationship and family issues, self development and coaching.

As an integrative therapist Kina combines and draws on different psychotherapy models including integrative/transpersonal and psychodynamic therapy, transactional analysis, CBT tools and mindfulness. She is also a qualified Somatic Experiencing practitioner, a gentle but very efficient trauma healing and stress-reduction method. This gives her a flexible “tool box” with which to help her clients, since she firmly believes one size doesn’t fit all and every person is unique and so are their circumstances and journey.

Along with Carl Jung, who suggested that “Man needs difficulties, they are necessary for health”, Kina sees problems and mistakes as potential gateways to growth and she is passionate about facilitating the process of growth, finding joy and healing in her clients.

Kina has a multicultural background and speaks fluent English, Swedish and Spanish. With a previous career in international corporate business she has a solid understanding of company dynamics and the real working world out there.

She holds the following therapy qualifications:

–  Advanced diploma in individual counselling and psychotherapy

–  Advanced diploma in couples counselling and psychotherapy

–  Diploma in Somatic Experiencing trauma healing (SE)®

Areas of counselling Kina deals with:

Kina is an accredited member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and abides by its code of ethics. She is fully insured.

On therapy and personal growth:

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”

Alan Alda

“As I learn to love myself, I receive the love I desire from others.”

Shakti Gawain

On healing trauma:

“Just as a plant spontaneously moves toward sunlight, there is in each of us an impulse moving toward connection and healing.”

Dr Aline LaPierre

Please click here to watch a video that explains how and why Somatic Experiencing trauma therapy works. This second video is an example of how animals naturally, and literally, shake off the trauma in the body as soon as the threat has disappeared or trauma event is over.

Kina currently works at the clinic on Friday mornings.
