About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist, an EMDR Europe Accredited Consultant and IFS Therapist with 18 years' experience in the field of psychological therapy. Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 2003, I have completed many additional trainings in trauma-focused approaches (including EMDR), systemic approaches (including IFS), mindfulness and supervision. I have worked with a broad range of clients presenting with many different issues in the NHS in Primary Care, in the Welfare Department of Kent Police and in private practice. I work with clients experiencing symptoms of trauma, anxiety (including performance anxiety), low mood and phobias. Clients also come to me to address relationship issues and habits/behaviours they would like to change. I describe my approach as Integrative, with a Person-Centred philosophy underpinning all of my work. I am particularly interested in working to relieve my clients of present day difficulties which may have their roots in past trauma. This may be single incident trauma or more chronic attachment and developmental trauma from childhood. These days I am working more and more with attachment-focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and Internal Family Systems (IFS), both of which are powerful ways of gaining an understanding of our inner worlds, and both of which gently, collaboratively and creatively support transformation and healing.  As well as counselling, psychotherapy, EMDR trauma-focused and IFS therapy, I also offer clinical supervision.
