My Approach

Are you finding it hard to manage the complexities of day-to-day life? Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or concerned you can’t cope? Are your relationships suffering? Or has something happened that you're finding it hard to move on from?

I can help. I empower women going through periods of transition to understand themselves better: to make sense of life, find meaning and go their own way.

My 24-session programme of 1-to-1 psychotherapy is for you, if you're:
- Going through a difficult time, or embarking on a change
- Experiencing anxiety, feeling on edge or unable to sleep
- Stuck in a rut, repeating patterns or struggling with relationships
- Unable to move on from a traumatic experience (including birth trauma)

What's included:
+ Weekly 50 minute sessions, at a dedicated time
+ Relational psychotherapy process with evidence-based strategies
+ Psychoeducation to help you understand what's happening
+ All sessions are held online

About Me

I specialise in trauma and the mind body connection. This means that I work with women who are experiencing anything from embodied symptoms such as anxiety, through to those struggling with relationships and the fallout from shocking events (trauma). Periods of transition, such as career change, quarter-life crisis, relationship breakdown, marriage and motherhood can feel destabilising because they wake up ghosts from our past. Where trauma causes devastating effects on the mind and body, that act like haunting ghosts, psychotherapy can calm the mind and body, laying the ghosts to rest. I believe that working on resolving trauma has the power to not only change individual lives, but it has an irreversible ripple effect across families, communities and future generations.

My practice integrates a relational framework that draws on trauma-informed psychodynamic theory and is grounded in interpersonal neurobiology. I use body and narrative processes to help you integrate your experiences, re-write your story and make empowered choices.

I offer medium term therapy (24 sessions) because this frame creates a safe container for therapy to unfold. After this, clients will have gained enough insight to choose whether they have what they need, or to seek out a longer term process.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Do you feel on edge, jittery or unable to sleep? Stress triggers an emotional fire alarm for impending danger. Anxiety is when we’re stuck in a state of hyper-vigilance and the alarm repeatedly goes off. What might happen if you could respond more appropriately to the situation you’re in?
I offer exclusively online therapy. This means all therapy is held in the comfort and convenience of your own space.
Are you stuck in a rut, repeating patterns or struggling with attachment? Early and significant relationships are essential for brain development and have consequences that impact our day-to-day lives. What might happen if you could understand why you think, feel and do what you do?
Has something happened to shake your sense of safety in the world? Survival depends on our neurobiological system regulating responses to our environment. Trauma overrides the system and can leave the body stuck in a state of terror. What might happen if you could process your pain and bring your body back to healthy regulation?
