About me

I work with adults who are experiencing a range of problems or difficulties in their life. Not exhaustively these include trauma, sexual, physical or emotional abuse and neglect, anxiety, depression and low mood, stress and burnout, loss, grief, relationship difficulties, bullying, harassment and feeling detached. I endeavour to understand your experience through respectful, and empathic dialogue and help trace the origin of your difficulties, bringing unconscious thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour into your awareness, thereby promoting change.

It isn't always easy to accept that you might need professional support, but you have got this far and that takes courage. The next step is choosing the therapist that fits for you.

If you would like to chat to find out more about me and how I work, I offer a free 15 minute telephone call. Alternatively you can contact me by text/email, or visit my website.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters degree in integrative counselling and psychotherapy and I am accredited by the UKCP. I am a qualified EMDR therapist and I have additional post graduate training in trauma.
