About me

I have worked for over twenty years with individuals specialising in issues related to substance misuse and alcohol dependency problems. I am a trauma specialist covering many aspects including PTSD related issues. My work with trauma with both men and women focus in early childhood difficulties or more recent experiences around emotional physical or sexual violence. Again I am familiar with any form of emotional struggles that at times we may face in our lives. This can involve problems in how we relate to ourselves or others. I have experience at working with issues related to identity and cultural differences.
More recently I have trained in couple counselling. Here my aim is to help gain insight into difficulties within relationships so that in time a way forward can be reflected on and explored. Creative listening is a tool which is very much part of this work.

Areas of interest

I work with both men and women from sixteen years old to late 70's; Fears related to the ageing process; Depression; Anxiety; Trauma; Addiction; Alcohol dependency; Pregnancy; IVF difficulties; Cancer; Relationship problems; Self esteem; Health concerns; Identity issues; Cultural difference awareness.
