About me

I work with adults who have suffered from emotional, psychological and narcissistic abuse. Whether it be from a family system, partner, or work environment, psychological and emotional abuse often leaves scars that are very deeply rooted. Some of this abuse may not even be obvious to begin with. Through therapy, I help my clients unpack their experiences, and together we build on coping tools, and processing of the trauma through somatic and brain based interventions. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a clinical psychologist in South Africa and I’m registered to practice in the UK. I have experience working as part of multi-disciplinary teams in large psychiatric units, as well as running my own practice. I treat adults who are experiencing psychological distress from narcissistic, emotional and pychological abuse.

I work from a systemic paradigm which sees the person in context. I am highly skilled at working interactionally, and have a person-centred approach. I have been trained to level III in Interactional Pattern Analysis (Cave, 2020; Vorster, 2014) which is a tool that helps with understanding an individual’s unique interactional patterns and assists with formulating a solution to each person. I also work with a brain-based technique called Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) which is a unique therapeutic intervention for trauma, anxiety, grief and many more issues.

I believe that although we can talk about trauma, it ultimately needs to be resolved at both a neurological and physical level alongside talking therapy.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
