About me and my therapy practice

I am a passionate, motivated, BACP Accredited Counsellor with proven experience supporting individuals and groups in various settings, offering short or long term counselling or psychotherapy.

I specialise in working with different types of trauma's and have the required skill sets to support individuals to manage their psychological and physiological symptoms. I use Psycho-education to support people to understand why and how their bodies and minds may be reacting to situations which may leave them feeling frightened, overwhelmed or confused. Using Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a way to integrate our bodies as well as our minds and is fundamental to the healing process of unresolved trauma. I also use EMDR Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing which is used in the 'NHS NICE' guidelines.  

I have vast experience working with addictions, anxiety and depression. I use an Integrative approach which includes creating a safe space, where you can work towards your aims and objectives. I integrate Pyschodyamnic theory which is understanding how the past may influence the present, this can explain possible reactions to different situations and relationships difficulties. I include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help you unpick thinking traps. I also use visuals and creative tools which can take the pressure of if you find taking difficult.

I am a trained Critical Incident Group Responder and work with Insurance companies such as HealthAssured, Wellbeing Solutions and Care First. 

I consider the perspectives of people from a wide range of backgrounds and can adapt my approach according to the needs of the people I am working with.
