About me

I am an experienced integrative psychotherapist, accredited by the BACP and EMDR Europe. After achieving my Masters’ degree at Worcester University, I now use a trauma informed approach to psychological distress and ongoing traumatic stress. I work with individuals, couples or adolescents, trained in the most recent EMDR Interventions including protocols.

Keeping up to date with research and scientific knowledge is very important to my work so I am a member of two academic forums, one is UK based and the other for a very new and effective EMDR phase 2 intervention called the Flash Technique which is US based. I am also a member of two US Continuing Professional Development Groups, NICABM group and Scaling Up EMDR.

2020 brought many challenges with the Coronavirus and by the end of March I built a virtual studio to do my work online. I also embarked on an extensive Continuing Professional Development programme and networked with other EMDR therapists to form best practice for online work as well as additional training, this includes advanced EMDR training with Dr Nacho Jarero of Mexico, trained in his PRECI and IGTP protocols developed to help with recent critical incidents and ongoing traumatic stress, I also trained in Attachment Focussed EMDR and intergenerational EMDR. I hold full professional and civil liability insurance and a current enhanced DBS (Criminal records checks), I’m also registered with the Information Commission (ICO).

I have worked across a broad spectrum of clients with emotional and behavioural issues many adults, couples and families with complex clinical presentations and the nature, cause and history of their problems are always as unique as they are.
Studying EMDR completely changed my practice and I adopted a trauma informed approach in response to the CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study which looked at the relationship between childhood abuse, neglect and household challenges and later-life health and well-being. Some of the major findings were that Some populations are more vulnerable to experiencing ACEs because of the social and economic conditions in which they live, learn, work and play.
EMDR is the most rapid and effective way to desensitise the images, sounds, emotions and bodily feelings associated with this type of trauma.
My academic research conducted in Thailand last year used an integrative group treatment protocol that was effective in treating a group of therapist’s vicarious trauma and traumatic stress achieving a masters with merit in EMDR therapy.

When I was part of the Relate team delivering separated parents programme on behalf of Cafcass I wrote a section in a published book about the Separated Parents Information Programme (SPIP) for 101 Questions Answered About Separating with Children commissioned by Only Mums & Only Dads organisations.
