About me and my therapy practice

I am an Integrative Therapist which means the way we decide to work together will depend on your individual needs, therefore we can adapt the right therapy to suit you.

I am experienced in working with a range of different issues but I specialise working with addictions, various traumas, and the physical symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Physical symptoms for e.g rapid heart rate, dry mouth, lethargic, loss of libido, changes in appetite, are sometimes overlooked as we try to 'think' our way out of what we are experiencing. I can support you to understand how the mind and body can respond in these ways to unresolved issues.

I integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. This is a therapy that explores how you may have experienced a situation or an event in the past or present, by exploring the cognitive (thinking), emotional (feeling), movement in the body, five sense perception (sound, sight, smell, touch and taste) and somatic responses (breathing, heart rate, temperature). These can be in conflict with each other, or the mind and body hasn't fully processed the event leaving us with unwanted symptoms.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right words to explain how we may feel, at these time being creative in the therapy room can support you to deal with such difficulties and help you to achieve your outcomes.
