About me

Therapy

I am an experienced therapist willing to help you explore anything that may be at all worrying or stressful. My hope is to offer a genuine and trusting relationship, whilst enabling you to mindfully explore your thoughts and feelings safely.

Maybe you don't know what you are feeling, just that you need to make a change? Perhaps you are feeling low, agitated or anxious? So many symptoms can becoming debilitating or confusing if we are not sure how to manage them.

To help you explore yourself and any difficulties that might arise, and to encourage lasting change, I integrate traditional talking therapies with the practice of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

The Sensorimotor approach is a mindful and body-centered therapy. Overtime we all build up habitual and automatic ways of behaving, our work together will help you to become curious about these procedurally learned habits and as you do so, your unconscious responses can be brought to the fore, explored, understood - and changed. It can be both exciting and challenging as you learn to curiously engage with the way you think, feel and listen to yourself.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is based on the latest research in neuroscience and works with the physical and psychological effects of both trauma and developmental patterns of behaviour.

Trauma isn't always a big or obvious life event and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is particularly effective in treating the symptoms that arise from so many of life's difficulties. Symptoms such as mood swings, depression, anxiety, anger and feelings of isolation can have a great effect on our day to day living. Working in this way encourages gentle but lasting release of debilitating symptoms.

My experience
I have many years experience of working with a wide range of issues, in a range of settings. I also specialise in complex trauma, ptsd and dissociative disorders, including dissociative identity disorder. I have a particular interest in any issues that affect health, and my approach and way of being is based on mindfulness.

By incorporating both a cognitive, body-centered and mindful approach my hope is to offer you the space to talk and explore, whilst encouraging and supporting you to expand your sense of self and enable lasting change.
