About me and my therapy practice

I am a versatile therapist and work in an integrative way to ensure I can meet the individual needs of each client.

I have experience working with client’s (both adults and young people) who are experiencing emotional and psychological difficulties, including; trauma (inc. PTSD, CPTSD, DID) depression, attachment and relational trauma, phobias, anxiety, dual diagnosis and all aspects of addictive behaviour including eating disorders, pathological gambling, sex and love addiction, co-dependency, alcohol, drugs, and other process addictions in both private practice, higher education and within inpatient and secondary treatment settings.

I draw on a variety of approaches in my work. My aim is to facilitate and support clients to move towards greater self awareness and connection. To develop an insight and understanding of their defensive and protective patterns so that they can move towards a more authentic and fulfilling life.

I draw on somatic experiencing and sensorimotor psychotherapy to support clients to bring awareness to the sensations in the body and to access the nervous system and the bodies natural healing powers to resolve trauma and other stress related disorders.

Internal family systems therapy works on supporting the relationship between the "self" and the parts that make up the self- allowing us to work with protective patterns which have built up over time in response to trauma.

The core values of the person centered approach underpin all my work. I believe, whole heartedly that when provided with a safe and facilitative environment individuals are able to move towards empowerment, fulfillment and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Practice description

I am a versatile therapist and work integratively to ensure I can meet the individual needs of each client. I draw on a variety of approaches in my work. These include ( though not exclusively) ; Somatic experiencing, which works by bringing awareness to the sensations in the body, thus giving access to the nervous system and the bodies natural healing powers to resolve trauma and other stress related disorders. Internal family systems therapy - which works on supporting the relationship between the "self" and the parts that make up the self- allowing us to work with defence and protective patterns which have built up over time in response to trauma. Compassion focused therapy which aims to promote healing by encouraging individuals to practice compassion towards themselves and others. Sensorimotor psychotherapy - a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved trauma. Sensorimotor psychotherapy combines somatic therapies, attachment theory, cognitive applications, neuroscience, and techniques from the Hakomi method.

The core values of the person centered approach underpin all my work. I believe, whole heartedly that when provided with a safe and facilitative environment individuals are able to move in the direction of change, growth, empowerment, fulfillment and the opportunity to reach their full potential.
