About me

Trauma, from the Greek for “wound”, “is not what happens to you; it is what happens inside you as a result of what happens to you …”Dr Gabor Maté 

  • Childhood trauma, whether small trauma or big trauma, sadly affects all aspects of our adult life.
  • Trauma, that is unresolved, whilst attempting to create relationships with others, whether family or intimate romantic relationships, will struggle. 
  • Trauma affects our ability to deal with anxiety and depression and is likely to have caused anxiety and depression
  • Childhood trauma is possibly connected to some ADHD symptoms.
  • Childhood trauma is connected to addictions

Childhood trauma leads us to find or create a pain-free or painless place in our adulthood, we can create this place through alcohol, drugs, porn, sex, affairs, and multiple unsuccessful relationships, it gives us short-term relief from our long-term pain, hence we do it again and again

In my experience, unless we know how our childhoods have affected us, we will continue to have difficult adult relationships, and we will continue to find external things to hide the pain we are in, alcohol, drugs, sex, affairs, multiple relationships. We will continue this time and time again

The relationship with ourselves is the most intimate and important relationship we will have; this is where your pain sits and grows.

I work with, relationships, couples or individuals.

I work with addictions the trauma behind the addiction the pain and behaviour around it/them.

I create a space where there is no judgment around your choice of pain killer, I'm here to walk side by side with you to look at why you are in so much pain. 

Anger management is something we can explore, using tools that can lead to a more effective way of communicating what we are feeling. 

I offer therapy to clients to help them arrive at a solution that is appropriate for them.

We will explore relationship problems and past experiences, this will include difficulties we may have with addictions, and explore traumas in childhood that are causing problems in your life today.

Of course, finding someone you can trust and feel secure with who can help us to talk about difficult subjects, subjects we may have never shared with anyone is a daunting task, I hope I provide a safe supported space to be heard and valued for your thoughts, and your feelings, and work with the emotions this may bring.
