About me and my therapy practice

-BA (Hons), FdA, HNC  -  

Hello, and thank you for viewing my profile. This is a positive first step to seeking help through talking therapy.

I offer Integrative Counselling to adults, and my modality is based on a Humanistic and Positive Psychology approach

I mainly work with clients who have experienced trauma. This can be due to single traumatic events leading to PTSD, or Complex Trauma developed through a series of traumatic events. A trauma focused approach to therapy has proved beneficial for those who are survivors of sexual abuse, domestic abuse, interpersonal violence; or those who have experienced or witnessed a sudden traumatic event, such as an accident, incident or bereavement.

Trauma symptoms can include flashbacks, panic attacks, hypervigilance, dissociation, nightmares, irritability and anxiety. In order to cope with this, individuals often develop negative coping strategies.

The type of counselling I use would be tailored to your needs and preferences. This can also be through using creative strategies such as art, craft, narrative or written.

I can also offer short term counselling using Solution Focused Therapy; usually 1- 6 sessions. This works well for those who are facing a life challenge such as relationship breakdown, illness or disability, redundancy, retirement etc. 

I am able to offer Brainspotting Therapy (BSP), which is a Neuro-experiential approach to attuning the brain and sensory experience. Often used to process trauma, BSP has also proved beneficial for sports people, performers and public speakers who have had issues such as Focal Dystonia, anxiety or lack of confidence. These are 90 minute sessions.
