My Approach

Due to traumatic periods or incidents in your life (even if many years ago), you may be experiencing an invasion of thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, images or unexplained body sensations. Such experiences can be overwhelming and can either; send you into panic attacks, cause you to react defensively, create a desire in you to escape or cause you to go into a state of freeze. These responses can then send you into despair or depression.
Our work will initially be about understanding what is affecting you, so we can establish the resources and skills to allow you effectively manage these experiences. I will help you take the energy out of engulfing shame that makes you feel as if something is fundamentally wrong with you and can stop you from relating to others in the way you would like.
We use your developing skills and resources to help you manage your bodily responses and thought processes so you can gradually replace self-criticism and hatred with self-compassion and acceptance. I help you positively connect with your body instead of disconnecting from it or seeing your body as your enemy. Your increased self-confidence will help you in decision-making and your relationships with others.
If you would like to discuss these areas more, contact me for an initial session at no cost or obligation but to explore what you are looking for and what I can offer you.

About Me

I am a qualified relational psychotherapist and offer one-to-one therapy sessions in a homely confidential space. Together we explore your past experiences and how they affect your life today, looking at unresolved wounds that invade you and how you cope each day.

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.

Through our work together we can identify what triggers your anxiety and find ways of managing how anxiety affects your daily life.
Whether you were bullied as a child or later in life the effects can be damaging to your relationship with yourself and with others. We journey together to face what happened to you, explore how you survived and find new ways of being both with yourself and with others.
Looking at how your shame can overwhelm you. We work together to develop the skills and resources to take the energy out of your shame and bring about greater self-acceptance and connection with your body.
Due to Dystonia in my eyes, I do not rely on my sight, instead, I use images and all my other senses when working with my clients. Even though it is my preference to be in the same room with my clients, I can when necessary create a unique space with my clients via the telephone and find we can journey together in this third dimension created over the telephone.
Working with both developmental trauma as well as traumatic incidents and how they are affecting your body, mind and behaviour.
