Integrative Psychotherapist - MSc Psych, PG Cert Clin Sup

About me

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

In light of the current pandemic I am offering therapy either online, or face to face sessions outdoors.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, and Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Supervison. I have worked in the field of Trauma and Complex Trauma for 15 years in various roles in the NHS, the Third Sector, and privately.

I have been fortunate to train with some of the best 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 daunting 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.

In light of the current pandemic I am offering therapy online, via telephone, or face to face outdoors.

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