Previously Head of Counselling at Middlesex University in London, I now work exclusively from my practices in Harley Street, London and in Ipswich. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples, trauma recovery therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and teach Trauma and Tension Release Exercises (see description below). EMDR is a treatment of choice for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as recommended by NICE (National Institute for Care and Health Excellence).
I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and an approved psychotherapist and counsellor for Aviva Healthcare, Pruhealth, Simply Health and WPA.
I have extensive experience in working with a range of issues including (and in no particular order): Anxiety and panic attacks, stress, depression, trauma and post traumatic stress disorder, low confidence and self-esteem, obsessive thoughts/behaviour, anger management, communication difficulties and fear of intimacy, abuse, suicidal thoughts and self-harming behaviour, grief and bereavement, workplace difficulties, relationship difficulties (both heterosexual and gay), sexual problems, self identity, loneliness and difficulty expressing feelings & emotions.
In addition to offering individual, group and couples counselling and psychotherapy, I also offer clinical supervision to other psychotherapists and counsellors in training.
Trauma and Tension Release Exercises (TRE)
TRE is a highly effective technique designed to enable the body to release stress and tension that have accumulated as a result of: traumatic life experiences such as accidents, natural disasters, abuse, social and domestic violence or loss; immediate and long-term stress or anxiety and more general difficult life situations.
Deeply held tension is released from the body through a sequence of 6 simple exercises that are designed to evoke a muscular tremoring process called 'Neurogenic Muscle Tremors'. The gentle self-controlled tremors originate deep in the psoas muscles and reverberates outwards along the spine, releasing stress and tension from the sacrum to the cranium. Once learned and mastered, this technique can be used as and when needed at home.
TRE is an effective tool for releasing chronic traumatic stress, emotional trauma, physical tension, every day stress, anxiety and the pressures of daily life.
