I am passionate about supporting my clients back to emotional health. I offer a safe, supportive and respectful environment for you to explore your issues.
I use a mixture of traditional psychotherapy exploration of historical issues along with helping my clients regulate their emotional reactions through both breathing technique and Mindfulness exercises. In the case of trauma I will use other contemporary approaches such as EMDR and Brain Spotting.
I am a UKCP & BACP Registered Psychotherapist with 15 plus years of experience in both the NHS and privately.
I am an EMDR Practitioner Accredited by EMDR UK & Ireland. I am also a Mindfulness Teacher having trained at Bangor University Centre for Mindfulness.
Areas of interest
I work with many issues, including:
Anxiety;Depression;Stress;Bereavement; Low Self-Esteem;Confidence;Trauma; Relationships.
I am especially interested in using current thinking in neuro-science re trauma whether this is a specific trauma or relational trauma during development. The application of EMDR & Brain Spotting can both be very helpful in clients learning to improve the regulation of their nervous system to manage panic, anxiety and stress.
I am happy to work with clients from 16 onwards.
