About me and my therapy practice

I have clinics in the following locations:






I graduated many years ago with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Psychology, I have a keen interest of how life experiences can shape our emotions, feelings and thoughts and  how this can impact on our behaviours and how we see the world.

I have been practising as a psychotherapist for many years and understand that as we go through life many things can influence the way we see ourselves. Life can sometimes strip us of our ability to stay strong and keep hold of our sense of self. Understanding how our internal processes work can enable us to develop our awareness of self. 

I am an EMDR Therapist and specialise in childhood Trauma and PTSD, I have an in depth knowledge and understanding of how the body and brain can imprint and hold onto trauma. It is possible to reduce the negative impact of trauma through processing the memory of the past traumatic experience.

I am qualified interactive Therapist, this enables me to work around and within a range of counselling modalities: such as Cognition and Behavioural, Person-Centred, Psych-Dynamic Solution Focused and Mindfulness Therapies.
