About me

I am a focusing-oriented therapist, supervisor, and AF-EMDR therapist. I hold qualifications in Counselling, Focusing-oriented therapy, Supervision and EMDR therapy.

Having worked substantially in counselling for drug and alcohol problems, my PhD researched the theory and practice of therapy for addictions in some depth. Recently I have also been involved in couples work and therapy that takes a cognitive-analytic orientation.

Currently, I offer counselling, EMDR therapy and clinical supervision in private practice. I also counsel survivors of sexual abuse in a local charity. In the past I have acted as an Associate Tutor for the University of East Anglia and a Psychological Practitioner for the NHS in a drug and alcohol partnership.

I enjoy offering focusing-oriented therapy, shaping the process to meet the need of a client. I like to be open-minded in supervision and enjoy working with therapists from a variety of orientations.

Having been trained in Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) I am enjoying incorporating this with focusing into my work with clients.
