About me and my therapy practice

I am an Accredited EMDR therapist, a qualified and experienced Children and Young Person (CYP) Counsellor and a systemic family practitioner. I am psychodynamically trained and work with adults as well as children and young people. I use art, play, sandtray and talking mediums to help facilitate emotional processing - working with the metaphor helps clarify and rationalise presenting issues which in turn helps the client to help themselves find solutions to their aims of therapy.

I primarily work with adults and families using interactive and revealing processes that, again, assist the clients in understanding their own thought processes and interactions with other people including family members. The therapeutic space encourages emotional exploration of self and awareness of others within their immediate family, friendship and work dynamic.  

Working with trauma (at all levels) I am an Accredited EMDR therapist and I am also a qualified CYP EMDR therapist. I use EMDR for many forms of therapy including attachment, grief, couples and addiction. 

I am a qualified supervisor for CYP and adult counsellors/trainees. 

Practice description

I work from my own address using a separate building specifically designed for adult, children and young people, family and EMDR therapy. I also work online - this works extremely successfully particularly with EMDR.
