About me

Welcome, my name is Amy and I am a Trauma-Informed Psychotherapist. Specialising in working with you, your experience and how your trauma may be affecting your life. 

You may feel shut down, sensitive, anxious or struggling with conflict in your relationships.  My clients say they feel seen, heard, connected and supported with me.   These are the fundermentals to a positive therapy experience. 

At the heart of therapy is relationship, and I believe that working with the whole person in an authentic way produces the best results.  I offer specific knowledge and experience, allowing a direct and positive approach to healing from conflict and trauma.   

I provide a safe, secure and trusted space both online and in person.   I will help you acknowledge your feelings, emotions and sensations.  Empowering you to understand your triggers, using trauma-informed techniques to balance yourself.
