I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist working integratively with several modalities of therapy, the core ones being Transactional Analysis and EMDR (Eye Movemement Desensitisation Reprocessing therapy). I am an EMDR Accredited Practitioner.
I offer a warm and non-judgemental environment and my aim is to provide you with a safe and supportive space to explore issues and problems. My belief is that people have the capacity to change but at times may need assistance to achieve this.
My approach is straight-forward and effective using a wide range of psychotherapeutic techniques and I offer both short and long term therapy.
Mind body connection is the foundation of my work, and this has developed extensively through my work within a rehabilitation centre working with members of the Firefighter's community.
EMDR is recognised by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation as the treatment of choice for post-traumatic stress disorder. It is also effective in addressing issues such as anxiety, stress, abuse, and trauma.
Before I became a Psychotherapist, I worked in Human Resources within the NHS and hold a Masters Degree in HR. I have a good understanding of a wide range of personnel and work related issues which people experience. I am a mother of 2 children and live in the Eden Valley
