About Me

I have an integrative approach to working with clients that means I draw on a number of models and methods including Transactional Analysis, EMDR and trauma techniques, Person Centred, Human Givens, Developmental/ Relational and Mindfulness. This approach is based on a client's needs and preferences, which ensures a more tailored treatment to suit individual needs. The therapeutic relationship is central to my work. I offer a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental and safe space for clients to work in. This allows clients to explore, reflect and evaluate any personal issues or struggles they might be experiencing. The overall aim is to enable clients to gain greater understanding, self-awareness and autonomy whilst gaining self-esteem and confidence to enable personal growth and change and movement in a positive direction. Training includes: Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, MSc. Parts 1 to 3 EMDR Europe approved training. Working with the body and complex trauma EMDR certificates. Person Centred Counselling, Human Givens methods, Trauma Rewind and Mindfulness. CBT Health Anxiety certificate. OCN West Midlands Level 3 Award for Professionals Working in the Sexual Violence Sector. I am a member of The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute and a member of EMDR UK and Ireland. I have many years of experience working within the arena of supporting victims of crime, violence and sexual abuse. As well as clinical practice I have experience in senior management, utilising supervision, leadership and coaching skills. I also have experience of project development and working with statutory agencies and voluntary sector organisations. I am currently working with survivors of trauma and sexual abuse.
