Training, qualifications & experience
- MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
- EMDR Therapist
- 1st year training in sensorimotor psychotherapy
I completed my Masters training (4 years) in Integrative counselling and psychotherapy, at the Sherwood Institute in July 2013.
Previously I trained as a registered general nurse and I went on to work with families with children who had learning disabilities; I worked in this field for over 13 years.
Presently I am training in Sensorimotor psychotherapy, which is a therapy that works with the body to heal traumatic memories.
Sometimes talk therapy is not enough to help a client heal traumatic memories and/or symptoms. Sensorimotor therapy includes working with the body (symptoms) in order to complete what couldn’t happen at the time of the trauma.
Trauma can have an overwhelming effect on the body so that symptoms can show up somatically (in the body).
”Modernity has brought with it...a split between what we know with our whole being and what our thinking mind accepts as truth. Of these two kinds of knowledge the latter, narrower, kind most often wins out, to our loss” Gabor Mate from his book ‘When the Body says No’
