Is Your Past Getting in the Way of Your Present
Struggle with intimate relationships?
Feel there is something wrong or bad about you?
Find yourself repeating self destructive behaviours?
Suffer with feelings of shame or low self esteem?
You may be experiencing symptoms of trauma.
By working with awareness, mindfully and in the present moment we can begin to heal these early wounds.
As we dispel the the illusions of the past we create space in ourselves, we relax; our nervous systems can regulate, tensions are released and we experience greater ease and well being. Through healing our early trauma we are able to
develop our capacity for connection and relationship
Feel our feelings more fully
experience more freedom and joy
reconnect with our aliveness
I have been working in the field of Psychotherapy and Counselling for many years. I am a trauma therapist and psychodynamic counsellor.
I offer a neuroscientifically informed integrated approach that encorporates both mind and body and is particularly beneficial when working with anxiety and depression. I work intuitively, at depth, with awareness and in the present moment. For more information on working with trauma - please visit my website.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
