About me

I am a Dramatherapist working with children and adults with a range of complex challenges.  My role as a therapist is to enable the people, I am working with to realise that they are the expert in their own situation, and that using our skills together they are able to develop a way forward.

Dramatherapy offers an alternative route to psychological support. I am able to suggest creative interventions, to support the safe understanding and exploration of a client's needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Masters in Dramatherapy – Creative Arts Psychotherapy (Merit) – with 5 years’ post qualification experience as a Dramatherapist in several diverse clinical settings. I am a registered Dramatherapist with the HCPC and with the British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth).

I maintain a consistent level of CPD and supervision throughout the year to maintain not only these registrations, but also my own high expectations of my professional performance, knowledge and understanding.

I have significant experience of working with both children and adults, within the NHS, schools, NGO and within my own private practice.

I am specifically interested how early trauma can affect child and adult development. In my practice I have conducted research on the effects of abuse in Erikson’s Psychosocial stages of child development on subsequent adult pathologies.

I have recent training on safeguarding, working therapeutically - online, supporting autistic clients and attachment theory.

I am starting an EMDR Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) training course in March 2021. I am looking forward to continuing my professional development and also building on my resources when working with a client who has had traumatic experiences.
