About me and my therapy practice

Within my private practise I work with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, lack of self worth/self esteem and confidence, bullying, abuse, self harm and relationship problems. I also have experience with complex PTSD, PTSD, and recently gained a first in my BA (hons) where i researched into emotional abuse, coercive behaviour, trauma bonding and narcissism within an intimate relationship.I also currently work part time as a trauma counsellor for a charity working predominately with young girls, teenagers and women who have experienced sexual violence, rape, childhood abuse and/or domestic abuse. Within my training I worked at a local women's refuge gaining extensive experience.I offer a warm, relaxed and confidential space for you to explore challenges being faced. Counselling enables you to come to terms with experiences of life and to gain awareness and clarity in a non-judgmental and empathic way. As an accredited member of the BACP I work in an integrative way which means I can draw on a wide range of theapeutic approaches which best to you and your situation. I believe within a therapeuitc relationship the most important factor is to have strong, trusting and safe therapeutic relationship where we can explore your difficulties and gain an understanding of any underlying causes. I am a fully trained hypnotherapist, Reiki master and past life regression therapist and believe in a holistic approach to therapy and healing.
