About me and my therapy practice

I offer a mind/body approach to working with Trauma. At the heart of healing is the human relationship. I offer my clients a safe, consistent, honest and heart led space from within which you can explore all that you are. 

I am an experienced, BACP registered NARM therapist; specialising in Complex Trauma. Psychodynamically trained, with a particular interest in Relational and intersubjective approaches. My personal and clinical experience has led me to believe that we each have the capacity to heal from our early wounds; what ever they may be.

I have trained in various mind-body orientated disciplines including, but not limited to Psychodynamic Counselling, Biodynamic Cranial Sacral therapy and NARM (NeuroAffective Relational Model.) I have been personally and professionally moved by the transformative power of the NARM approach, I find this is the Model that now shapes the orientation of my practice.

NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties. These early, unconscious patterns of disconnection deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behaviour and relationships.
