About me

Hello, I specialise in working online and in person with adults who are struggling after one or more traumatic experiences, including those with Complex PTSD, in a safe manner that avoids re-traumatisation. I also work with the family members of those living with P.T.S.D. symptoms, to educate them about trauma and give them practical support. I offer a free 30-60 minute initial consultation so that you can meet me and ask any questions without obligation.

Your priorities may include: 'putting the past in the past'; coming to terms with your past; managing triggers, flashbacks and nightmares; exploring relationships with others (past and present); managing shame, anger, anxiety, depression and feeling overwhelmed; building confidence in yourself to make decisions and the boundaries to stand by them; becoming more sociable and living your authentic life.

I use a safe, trauma-aware, pragmatic, educational, empowering and solution-focused approach. Alone, traditional talking therapies can lead to re-traumatisation and trigger intensely uncomfortable states. Gentle, but powerfully effective, trauma-aware practices will mean you can heal without ever needing to go into the details of your trauma(s).

As an 'Integrative' therapist I draw on various disciplines to suit your needs. These may include Gestalt, CBT, Positive Psychology, Yoga Therapy, Self-Defence and Neurobiology, however, the underlying approaches are Humanistic and Person-Centred. I will also advise on practical Personal Safety measures if relevant.

I am a strong believer in team work and that together we will work out the best way for you to meet your therapy goals; safely, effectively and at your pace.

My aim is to empower you with knowledge and practical skills so that you will no longer need my support.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

There is step free access to my therapy room. There are accessible toilets near the therapy room. I offer online sessions & free initial 1 hour consultations via Zoom. No account or software needed, you just follow the link I send you.
