About me

I am a BACP accredited, registered counsellor/psychotherapist with over 10 years of post qualifying experience. I also have a diploma in clinical supervision. I work within the BACP framework for ethical practice. I am a humanistic practitioner believing that everyone has the potential to determine their own lives. I believe that through awareness it is possible to identify choices that will enable growth and change unhealthy patterns of behaviour and relating. I work emphatically and with compassion in a non-judgemental way to establish a collaborative and confidential relationship of trust with my clients.

I have undergone extensive training and have many years of experience in working with trauma. One of the ways I work with trauma is a method called EMDR an acknowledged safe and effective method of working with trauma to reduce many of the debilitating effects (recommended in the N.I.C.E. guidelines). I also work with the methods promoted by Babette Rothschild (a psychotherapist with much experience and expertise in the field of trauma). These methods focus on the safety of the client to avoid re-traumatisation. I have worked for many years with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional/psychological abuse and domestic abuse. I am passionate about my work with abused and traumatised people and will work ethically to ease the distress and effects including flashbacks, nightmares and panic attacks.

I have experience of working with trauma in many different areas including road traffic accidents. Although I have specialised in working with abuse and trauma I also have much experience of working with many other areas such as bereavement, depression, low self-esteem, phobias and relationship issues and find there is often a crossover between issues.

I offer therapy to individuals and couples. I also offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee therapists individuals and groups
