My Approach

My approach is creative and informed by Psychodrama Theory, Psychodynamic, Neurobiology, Polyvagal and IFS. I am also an EMDR therapist.

About Me

I am a psychotherapist registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), a member of British Psychodrama Association (BPA) and I trained in Psychodrama Psychotherapy at the London Centre for Psychodrama. I am an EMDR therapist and member of the EMDR association.
I have a Level 1 and 2 Certificate in Complex Trauma.
I have experience in a range of areas, including complex trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, feeling stuck and directionless, and working with young people.
Clients are welcome to come for a first assessment to discuss what concerns bring them to therapy and how we might work together, at no obligation to continue the work together.
I originally trained in Psychodrama, and now I support my creative way of working with principles from different approaches, including:

- Psychodynamic theory,

- Neurobiology and Trauma,

- IFS (Internal Family System)

- Polyvagal theory
