About me

My vision as an integrated counsellor is to serve the individual needs of each client and in turn create a world where trauma and anxiety are healed in a more compassionate way that leaves you, the client, feeling in control of your own healing. It is my belief that trauma and anxiety cannot be healed by talking alone and a more diverse, holistic approach brings with it a more compassionate way of healing which brings a real difference to the lives of clients.

It is my belief that you cannot work with trauma purely through talking. I am unique in the way I work as I have a background in energy work, I work with EFT and I have knowledge of the polyvagal theory. This helps clients to coregulate their own nervous system to bring down anxiety levels when working through issues around trauma, anxiety and PTSD.

I chose this path because someone very close to me has a serious mental health illness along with a diagnosis of autism. There was very little choice of counsellors out there who were willing to work with my loved one on a holistic level. What he really needed was an approach which was more creative. My mission is to support clients in a more diverse way.

Before training in Hypnotherapy and counselling I was a registered childminder for 11 years and as part of my training I also gained a CACHE level 3 certificate in working with children under the age of 18 in special needs, in particular emotional and behavioural difficulties.  I also worked at the local family centre for 18 months as a play and outreach worker.  All these years of experience helped me to build fabulous listening and empathetic skills.
