My special interest lies in treating trauma, including childhood trauma after any form of abuse.

Further information

I started out as a psychologist and applied myself in research and psychometrics. I retain a keen interest in the neurosciences because of my training in physiology.
I am able to apply cognitive-behavioural methodology in short term, solution-focussed work and work for several agencies which deal with post-traumatic stress symptoms. Further training in energy psychology methods as well as EMDR has enhanced my ability to deal with the debilitating effects of PTSD. I am equally available for long - term, exploratory psychotherapy which focuses on the therapeutic relationship and dealing with existential life issues.
