I work for the NHS as a psychotherapist at The Royal Sussex County Hospital, and was the young person's therapist for teenage survivors of sexual violence and abuse at Survivors Network for the last 2 years. I have a private practice in Brighton, and trained at The Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE). Integrative Arts Psychotherapy is humanistic and essentially a relational collaborative way of working to facilitate our capacity to heal. I work with Attachment, psychodynamic theories, Gestalt, TA, and the arts, including the body to safely locate and integrate emotions. My approach is trauma informed and I am a qualified EMDR therapist. Trauma is often accumulative and sometimes people experience a 'last straw' moment after a number of events throughout life eg feeling vulnerable through illness, extreme stress, or a major loss. Realising these links and working through them clears the way for improving the present.
