Lina Mookerjee BSc, MA, Dip.MS, BWY.Dip, CTLLS, FCT, DCT, BACP (Senior Accred.)
After a decade as a professional electrical engineer, Lina spent much of the following 22 years as a Yoga teacher, trainer of Yoga teachers and BACP Senior Accredited psychotherapist. Her wide interests and variety of work roles are reflected in her fascination for study. Lina has a first degree in Engineering, a postgrad Diploma in Management Studies, an MA in Jungian Psychotherapy and Healing, and two qualifications in training and teaching.
Born in Birmingham and brought up in a Bengali Brahmin and Tantric cultural background, Lina has learned to integrate an unusual breadth of understanding of Eastern and Western philosophies, psychologies and health paradigms which she combines, along with her scientific and professional trainings, to inform her distinctive humanistic teaching approach. In her therapeutic practice, Lina has developed a psycho-physical-spiritual and neuro-energetic approach – a transpersonal way of working she refers to as ‘systemic integration’.
Over the last 22 years much of her practice has involved working with clients presenting with anxiety, panic, PTSD and depression. Her expertise is working with trauma, stress, using menopause as a mid-life transition process and facilitating psycho-spiritual integration.
Integrating her grounded science and engineering training/experience, Lina’s approach involves facilitating awareness of the human energy system. Using the Chakra system, she offers an accessible framework through which to enable processing and understanding.
She also facilitates personal development groups and retreats, delivers training courses and workshops, and continues her interest in mind-body connection (particularly in relation to its effect on health and well-being) and personal-spiritual development.
Lina is also a published writer, international cruise-ship lecturer, story-teller, blogger, published writer, micro-filmmaker, contributor on BBC Radio & TV and Alumni Fellow for Nottingham Business School/Nottingham Trent University. She is currently writing her first book: Starting in the Middle – for women about women at mid-life and in menopause.
