About me and my therapy practice
I deliver bespoke trainings to psychotherapists and counsellors.
My training is both Psychodynamic and later Integrative.
Since qualifying in 2007 I have worked in private practice, the NHS, University, many voluntary sector organisations, in trauma, mental health and homelessness services. I helped set up North London Rape Crisis, and have set up and facilitated set up of other therapeutic services.
My ongoing CPD and training has focused on: the neurobiology of trauma, stress and anxiety, somatic approaches to trauma and wellbeing, polyvagal theory and it's applications as well as mindfulness approaches and body based techniques.
The trainings I deliver are in these areas:
- Applying Polyvagal theory to client work
- Applying new neurobiological and mindfulness based techniques to client work
- Applying Polyvagal theory, neuroscience, somatic and/or mindfulness based techniques to therapist well being and self care.
- Understanding the impact of trauma through a neurobiological lens.
Trainings can also be bespoke.
I have delivered trainings for a wide variety of organisations, including many counselling services, trauma and mental health services, female offender services, disability services, in private settings, for individuals as well as in corporate settings.
I have taught trainees, seasoned therapists, social workers, support workers, job centre staff, mental health professionals, as well as led groups and workshops for the public and for clients of therapeutic services.
My methods are fun, engaging and my trainings are experiential and interactive.

About me and my therapy practiceI have been supervising and consulting with professionals since 2011.
My training backgrounds are Psychodynamic and later Integrative.
The Supervisory Space:
We can apply psychodynamic, attachment-based, integrative, humanistic, mindfulness-based and/or neurobiological thinking about your work.
We can explore client issues, relational issues, boundaries in the work, difference and diversity, social and societal issues and their impact +
We can also look at neuroscientific thinking around trauma, stress and anxiety states to your work, or simply to develop your own understanding of these ideas. I am trained in both polyvagal theory application, as well as many neurobiological and somatic perspectives of trauma/distress/anxiety. I can offer insight and guidance on incorporating these ideas into your practice gently, whilst holding your core theoretical approach in mind.
Self-care and understanding the impact of your work is of very great importance to me. We often discount the impact working in a therapeutic role may have on our well-being. Now more than ever, those who support others need to be well resourced, nourished and cared for themselves. I offer neurobiologically informed ideas, tools and thinking to aid in this.
The space I offer is grounded in my belief, that being able to explore our own and others differences is vital to good practice. I welcome and make room for exploration of how class, race, LGBTQIA+, cultural identity, gender, religion, spirituality, neurodiversity, disability, health and wealth status impact who we are, how we feel and how we experience the world around us. I am particularly keen on aiding professionals in giving thought to how they can make their practice accessible to those who identify as neurodivergent and/or disabled.
This is an affirmative space, where everyone is welcome, and where I too am committed to my own on-going learning, self reflection and development.
