About me

Hello, I specialise in working 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.
