About me

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

I offer Online, and telephone sessions, and also face to face at The Magnolia Therapy Centre NG5 and at Ransom Wood Business Park in Mansfield NG21. 

I specialize in working with relational trauma, attachment and narcissistic abuse.

I am also trained to support adult children of emotionally immature and narcissistic parents, and those recovering from other narcissistic relationship wounds. 

As an Integrative Psychotherapist. I do not use labels or diagnose mental health issues or illnesses. I am here to support you to heal and grow.

Narcissistic Abuse Recovery

I have experienced more and more people seeking counselling support due to being in a toxic relationship, which results in deep feelings of shame and unworthiness. 

You may currently be in an unhappy relationship or recently ended one. You may be struggling with relational trauma from childhood, often without even recognising it. If this was an emotionally abusive relationship it would have left you feeling;

Confused - The experience of gaslighting can leave you doubting yourself and your reality.
Like you are going crazy - As you would have been manipulated to believe its all in your head.
Lacking in Self-Esteem - As the narcissist would have made sure they destroyed your self esteem and confidence.
Depressed - Due to the disrespect and disregard you have been treated with.
Not Good Enough - From the constant put downs and criticism.
Anxiety - Due to the fear of saying or doing the wrong thing that would cause them to fly into a rage or devalue you.

If this all sounds familiar, I do hope you can find the courage to reach out and get the Counselling support and healing that you so deserve.

How can I help? 

My style of mind-body integrative Psychotherapy and Coaching can help you to;
Be happier 
Build resilience 
Improve your sense of self
Make better decisions for yourself, 
Have greater self-worth 
Be more connected to yourself and others
Increased confidence and self esteem.
Create healthier, more loving relationships with self and others.

Of course if you have experienced a toxic relationship it is likely you have experienced something similar growing up, or maybe you are here because of a narcissistic or emotionally immature parent and trying to understand or separate yourself from that relationship. 

What we are talking about here is developmental and relational trauma. If we have experienced emotional abuse or neglect as a child, we are much more likely to experience this in our adult relationships too which further compounds the relational trauma. 

Unresolved trauma from our childhood affects us deeply, throughout our lives. It not only affects how we think and feel, as well as our adaptive behaviours, but it also affects our relationships, our sense of self, how we parent our own children, and our outlook on the world.

Using integrated mind-body-brain based psychotherapy, neuroscience and coaching, it is possible to heal from C-PTSD and relational trauma, and grow into the person you deserve to be, and know that you are. However this does take time and commitment.

The change process will take time and there is no easy fix, but if you are willing to commit to your healing and growth then change is possible.

If you are the adult child of a narcissistic or emotionally immature parent then therapy can help you,

Develop Boundaries
Go no contact (if you choose to)
Help heal childhood and developmental trauma
Reclaim your authentic self
Heal your Inner Child
Release suppressed anger
Recognise trauma bonds
Heal your "good enough" wound
Nurture Self Compassion

If you can resonate with any of the above then I would love to work with you and help you to make the necessary changes to get unstuck.

Due to work commitments, I do not offer an initial call or answer calls.

Sessions can be arranged via email or text message, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

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.
