About me

I am an experienced trauma therapist and have been working in mental health for over 10 years with various client groups. I have previously worked as a Senior CBT therapist and EMDR therapist in the NHS. I am accredited by the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

I specialise in treating clients who experienced trauma and PTSD. I use CBT and EMDR combined to help alleviate trauma symptoms and have almost 100% recovery rates for single trauma treatment, measured by a trauma specific questionnaire called Impact of Events Scale revised (IES-r).

I am passionate about helping people to heal and rebuild their lives so they can enjoy life and achieve their full potential. There is often a misconception that when trauma is experienced, you’ll have to live with it for the rest of your life but this is simply not true. How do I know? Because I helped hundreds of clients to reduce trauma symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts about trauma, strong negative emotions or physical sensations associated with trauma and its aftermath.

I offer one-to-one remote therapy sessions via telephone or Zoom/Skype/WhatsApp/FaceTime where in a safe and non-judgemental environment you can explore your difficulties and concerns and work towards healing.

If you would like to know more about the therapy that I can offer and would like to discuss this further with me please send me a text to schedule a free no-obligation 15min consultation.
