About me

I am a trauma-informed integrative psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, neurofeedback practitioner and trainer. I specialise in developmental trauma, complex post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD, "personality disorders", grief, traumatic grief, chronic pain, anxiety, and low mood.

I cover North, and West Cumbria, and Southern Scotland including Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. I also provide online psychotherapy for people living further afield.

I provide both online and face to face sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, and Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision, and I am a Neurofeedback Practitioner. I have worked in the field of Trauma and Complex Trauma for 19 years in various roles in the NHS, the Third Sector, and privately.

I am also a tutor on the professional training programmes at Edinburgh University.

I have been fortunate to train with some of the leading trainers in the world, both in the UK and the USA, who specialise in working with the devastating impact of trauma on both the body and mind.

I’m particularly interested in helping you find new ways of understanding, managing and sometimes resolving both the physical and emotional symptoms of distress including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, back pain, headaches, circulatory problems and more, using a combination of integrative psychotherapy, and somatic trauma therapy allowing a whole body approach to healing.

I understand that coming to see a Psychotherapist can feel difficult and I hope to make you feel as comfortable as is possible by working at your pace, and responding to your needs, in a way that feels right for you.

I am continuing to offer therapy both face to face and online.

Please do contact me either using the email link, or my mobile telephone number, to discuss how I may be able to support you.
