About Our Work Together
Our work will be integrative which may include confidence and relationship building, healthy coping strategies and maybe a little healthy assertiveness, relaxation and body awareness.
Difficult events, thoughts, feelings and behaviour may be troubling you. We will work together for you to just be yourself, recognise your innate resources and power, at your own pace, without judgement or pressure. We will identify patterns, recognise triggers and establish the calm and clear conditions to move forward safely and healthily,
REWIND TRAUMA THERAPY 'Closure without Disclosure'.
REWIND therapy is a non invasive, quick, effective treatment for PTSD, trauma and phobias. My training was at Birmingham University with the founder of REWIND Dr David Muss.
REWIND therapy is different from other trauma therapies because no details are disclosed to the therapist. The treatment is known as "closure without disclosure"
For many people there are benefits of not disclosing details of trauma. This can minimise the risk of being re-traumatised following such experiences as rape, sexual abuse, violence, road traffic accidents or the witnessing of traumatic events.
What differs in couples work is the focus on the relationship between the two of you and how to take that relationship forwards, in equality and with a joint purpose. No bias or siding with one or the other exists. Both of you, as individuals, have a right to be heard and as a couple, a right to find stability without oppression, blame, fault or hurt.
Confidence building is at the core of my work with young people. Empowering healthy control and communication and social interaction, for a happier experience whether at school, home or with peer groups.
I am a member of the British Association of Performance Artists Medicine and EQUITY Therapists Directory. Our work will help to build self confidence, reduce performance anxiety, improve body awareness and performance strategies for a healthier sense of self within your art.
I run workshops on the The Little Line of Serenity© Anxiety Management for groups and organisations. Please email for details

Perhaps you want to cry but don't know why
or can't because you don't know how
or shouldn't, because you were told it was wrong
and never did, because you had to be strong
and mustn't, because it is all your fault.
It's not your fault.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
