About me

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

I specialise in working with trauma and it’s impact on both the mind and body using both psychodynamic and somatic psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, and a Certificate in Clinical Supervison and 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 psychodynamic integrative psychotherapy, and somatic trauma therapy. This way of working provides you with a “top down” (psychological), “bottom up” (bodily) approach to working with your entire being.

I understand that coming to see a Psychotherapist can feel daunting and I aim to make you feel as comfortable as if possible by working at your pace, and responding to your needs, in direct collaboration with you.

I do have some dedicated private rooms, however I understand that sometimes people need to be seen closer to home and for this reason I often work within GP practices. We can discuss how best to suit your needs.

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

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
