About me and my therapy practice

I am a Counsellor and love this work. I am employed as a Birth Trauma therapist in the NHS. This means I work to reduce the distress caused during pregnancy and birth which can produce both physical and mental health concerns. These include Anxiety, Depression, PTSD or relationship stresses. These can occur both in men and women, spontaneously, or over a longer period of time.

I work with almost any general life issue. I am a couple-therapist. I use EMDR, Rewind, Trauma-focused CBT in a person-centered approach and work with clients online (I use Zoom and Skype). I can travel for appointments. Availablity through some private health care sources, Currently expanding). Private care I primarily conduct from home.

I have developed a very particular way of working with general anxiety or trauma symptoms for example. This means I provide you with some tools/techniques to work with from the start of our connection and work immediately to reduce presenting symptoms. This builds confidence in your ability to contribute to this therapeutic process.

Trauma means you have been through events which leave your whole system anxious and stressed. Trauma might be severe anxiety after bullying, or a single incident like a car accident. Sometimes more severe symptoms may occur. All of this might be upsetting, I find that women or men rarely present with single issues and so therapy is an opportunity to work from the life store of a person's experience.

The way that I work is audited independently and I am happy to share those findings with you. History can surface in times of stress. Trauma, anxiety, and depression symptoms can be very uncomfortable. Please contact me if you feel that I might be able to help. If finances prevent you from applying please discuss in confidence. I offer reduced rates for both counselling and supervision for student counsellors
