About me

I offer a safe, non-judgemental, creative space for you to heal. I am a fully qualified integrative therapist (BSc) with postgraduate training in neuroscience (Cardiff) and trauma (Worcester). I aim to make therapy more affordable and one way I can do this is by offering online therapy sessions. Please see my pricing below for more details.

A limited number of reduced reduced rate appointments are available for people on a low-income and this is negotiated on a case by case basis - give me a call and we can discuss this. If you would prefer to see me for therapy in-person I also have a practice in central Cardiff and South Bristol.

I currently work at The Priory Hospital as an integrative therapist where I specialize in using eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to treat a range of psychological issues. I draw upon the psychodynamic modality which reflects on the potential impact of early relationships and experiences on mental and physical health. I have a particular interest in working with complex trauma and use EMDR therapy to help re-process the different layers of trauma that build up over time and ease mental distress.

Recent discoveries in neuroscience have shown that new connections and pathways in the brain can be formed throughout our lives. In therapy, we can create new experiences in a supportive and caring environment and form new neural connections to reintegrate areas that have become fragmented as a result of traumatic experiences. This new way of being will ripple through other aspects of your life and change your relationship with the world around you.

I work with a variety of issues including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Traumatic stress
  • Bereavement
  • Anger management
  • Addictions
  • Feelings of isolation/loneliness
  • Relationship issues
  • Exam stress
  • OCD
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Life coaching

If you have any questions about the way that I work or the therapy process in general give me a call on 07454 533 341 and we can have a confidential chat.
