About me and my therapy practice
* CAOCH * THERAPIST * MEDIATOR
Trauma Trained Integrtaive Art Psychotherapist (HCPC Registered)*
In sessions I focus on the need to establish safety and stability in your nervous system through developing skills in mindfulness, multidimensional thinking and feeling, psychoeducation and self-expression from the mind and body connection. Once stabilised we can begin to deepen into processing your wants, needs, dreams and fears. I have a wealth of experience working with those in crisis suffering from lack of focus, lack of mobility, stuck in survival responses and loss of hope. With my aptitude to retain regulation and vision I help guide others into theirs. We each need vision, without vision autonomy becomes illusive, and we merge facelessly into a system we can then result in resenting as we have been unable to individuate into our own potential. Developing upon self-expression, communication skills and self-regulation will aid the development of this individuation and development of trust in self and others. In my practice I work with an integrative theoretical model woven alongside the use of the expressive arts. It is in my best interest to support you to begin envisaging how you would like to use the resources available to you in the therapeutic relationship to begin transforming your life.
With specific interest in ‘IFS’, parts, and systemic constellations my approach is to bring a micro and macro aid to the challenges you are facing. I facilitate connection with an individual’s visual, bodily, and relational experience, leading to a bespoke understanding of their therapeutic process.
I am available to work long term and short term, and additionally have extensive experience in running experiential and psychoeducation groups.
I work with individuals, couples and ages 11+

My first session
In our first session I will complete an initial assessment with you to identify our suitability to work together. This involves us considering the length of treatment, presenting symptoms, time and cost considerations and overview of the therapeutic contract and alliance.
During this meeting we will also begin to identify the themes you wish to work on in your therapy to maximise on the time we have together. Our journey begins as soon as you reach out, I will endeavour to respond in a timely manner and with options of a time to meet to complete the initial assessment.
I look forward to hearing from you.
