About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified RMN psychiatric nurse and have a postgraduate qualification in counselling psychology. I also hold an LL.B(Hons) law degree and an LL.M Masters degree in law having spent many years involved in medical negligence and personal injury law.
I work with a wide variety of problems but have a particular interest in PTSD and in working with adult survivors of sexual abuse. I also have wide experience in the psychological aspects of diabetes, heart disease and heart surgery. Additionally, I am experienced in working with returnees from conflict zones.
I have a large number of solicitor clients and am skilled in providing services relating to catastrophic injury/personal injury and clinical negligence litigation and in associated report writing and court work.
I am trained in person centred and humanistic therapies and have also used CBT extensively. I tailor my methods to the individual client and work in conjunction with my clients to decide the best way to address their problems in an integrative therapeutic manner.
***For all those clients who ask me about the car, it’s a 1969 Volvo Amazon called, ‘Hannibal.’ I suffered a major heart attack several years ago which required quadruple heart bypass surgery and necessitated me spending a long time in ICU.
It took me a long time to get back on my feet and I suffered from PTSD as a result of being near to death on several occasions. This is the car which I rebuilt as my own therapy, often on dark nights when I was anxious and depressed at what the future may hold. The same old car now takes me all over Europe and features in two novels.
I see many clients with PTSD and find that my own experiences have now become a strength and help me to empathize and understand in a way that I probably would never have done otherwise.
