About me and my therapy practice
I have extensive experience working as a Counsellor / Psychotherapist with individuals, families and young people experiencing emerging or long term emotional issues.
My approach is attachment focused and informed by an understanding that early life experiences may influence the way we approach relationships, the way we experience ourselves in the world and the way we respond to challenge. Our identity, sense of belonging, creativity, self esteem, aspirations and the ability to take or avoid risk, can be subtly influenced by past relational experiences and events. Sometimes these influences can be absorbed as negative self beliefs underpinning self negating beliefs, relationship stress, isolation, addiction, anxiety and depression.
Counselling can liberate us from the binding self beliefs and difficult emotions that limit inherent potentials. It can enable the recognition that we do have choice and that positive change is achievable.
I am EMDR trained to work with trauma/PTSD, whether it be related to a single traumatic event or long term exposure to relational and/or physical trauma and/or abuse. Additionally in response to life changing loss, including perinatal trauma, and post natal anxiety / PTSD, for mothers and fathers who have experienced baby loss, infertility trauma and infant / child serious illness.
Practice descriptionMy practice is welcoming and inclusive to all.
Whether you are struggling to adjust to life after a bereavement or trying to make sense of ruminating thoughts, problematic behaviours and distressing emotions, I will do my very best to support you.
