About me

I bring fourteen years clinical experience providing counselling and psychotherapy in England and the United States, having worked extensively in the field of addiction and co-occurring disorders (including complex trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and mood disorders). I have had the privilege of working with a vast range of individuals including children, teens, adults, couples, families, police and military veterans.

My practice is informed from an integrative and strength-based approach drawing upon theory and techniques from evidence-based modalities in which I have received intensive training including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and somatic approaches.

This enables me to offer a holistic therapy that takes into account the whole, unique individual- respecting all aspects of your being: your emotional and somatic experiences, self-beliefs, ways in which you relate to others, and your personal strengths.

Areas of experience and speciality include:

  • Addiction and codependency
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression (emptiness, a loss of sense of self)
  • Fear and phobias
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Intense emotions (anger, guilt, jealousy, shame)
  • Self-esteem and loss of confidence
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder
