About me

I have over 25 years post qualifying experience in providing sensitive support to clients who require the highest degree of confidentiality and discretion. I am a UKCP-registered/accredited Psychotherapist & Child Psychotherapist. I also have extensive experience of using Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis, and I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Council and General Hypnotherapy Register - Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (SQHP) & Advanced Practitioner status.

I have specific expertise in helping clients with the following concerns:

- Trauma disorders (trained in EMDR & TF-CBT etc.)

- Anxiety and addictions (sexual compulsivity, alcohol addiction, substances, etc.)

I am a Fellow and Faculty Member of the International Society for Trauma and Dissociation and The Arizona Trauma Institute faculty member.

“Anything that human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”

My work focuses on attaining positive change to allow clients to attain and maximize their potential across all areas of life, such as work, relationships, health education, etc.

I present nationally and internationally on the subject of trauma and attachment.

Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss any matter which may bring you to psychotherapy.
