About Me

Currently I do not have vacancies. (March 2024).

I trained at the Bowlby Centre in Adult Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, and then at Terapia in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. I was a Registered Social Worker (HCPC) and worked with child protection, adoption, fostering and mental health for over 30 years but decided to cease this registration as I now just work as a psychotherapist. I offer attachment based psychoanalytical psychotherapy to individuals, children and young people, work with the arts, am EMDR trained ( a trauma therapy) and can also offer Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy to increase attachment and understanding between parents and children. I am particularly interested in working with developmental trauma (children and young people), and complex trauma (adults). I can offer therapeutic life story work for children who are in care, or who have been adopted, or who are placed with relatives. Recently I have been learning about Internal Family Systems (IFS) and incorporating that into my work, especially combining it with EMDR. I am on a learning curve, working with parts, and treating Dissociative Identity Disorder.

  • Children and young people
  • Families
  • Individuals
