About me and my therapy practice

Do you suffer with anxiety, depression, guilt or shame?

Do you feel isolated because of a breakdown in family relationships, separation or divorce, betrayal by friends or estrangement from community?

Do you need to recover from the impact of domestic abuse?

Are you suffering from post traumatic stress/post traumatic stress disorder?

Perhaps major life changes have left you feeling lost, stuck, confused, distressed and ashamed?

I am experienced in working with those who are distressed due to displacement, loss, trauma and abuse as well as adults who have suffered bereavement be it through death, divorce or broken relationships. Many of my counselling clients have suffered with anxiety and depression brought about by different difficulties in their lives, while others have struggled with symptoms of PTS/PTSD.

I am also experienced in working with clients who struggle with the strangulating effects of guilt and shame, as well as isolation, displacement, cultural issues, faith, diversity and a crisis of identity.

My training specialism is integrative. This means I can work flexibly, drawing on different approaches according to my client's preferences. 

I offer general talking therapies as well as REWIND - a specific technique which helps with recovery from PTS/PTSD. 

In our sessions, you will feel seen and heard because we would work in ways that suit your preferences.

If you would like to also work on practical goals such as life or career choices, as a qualified personal and professional development coach, I am well placed to work with you there too.

Do you need flexibility? In addition to face-to-face in person, I  offer sessions by telephone, video-link and email counselling.

Based on my novel, Beauty's Story, this online therapeutic book club will provide a space to explore the insidious nature of domestic violence, and to work through some of the issues that might arise for participants in the process.

***The main objective of this programme is to accelerate your journey of internal freedom from Domestic Abuse***
