I am an integratively trained therapist and supervisor, working in both private practice and the community sector. My main offices are in Crumlin & Ballinderry but i also see clients/supervisees in Antrim.
As an integrative therapist, both therapy and supervision are tailored to meet the needs of the individual and is client lead.
After qualifying as a counsellor in 2010 i continued on and gained the full Bsc (Hons) Professional Development in Counselling and then completed my CPCAB Level 6 in Counselling Supervision. I have a special interest in eating disorder, disordered eating and emotional eating, in particular the links between over eating and trauma. To consolidate this knowledge and further upskill, i have trained in DBT & RO-DBT for eating disorders.
I have recently done a period of retraining in couples therapy and i am now taking on couples as client. I will hopefully begin psychosexual training in the next few months.
I offer appointments both evenings and weekends to fit around busy family lives.
I am also on the Ulster University list as a recognised supervisor.
