I have twenty years experience working in a variety of mental health settings in the UK and Guernsey, including hospitals, clinics and schools.
I work face-to-face and via Skype/FaceTime/Zoom with individuals and couples, with an ethos that inspires me to work compassionately and therapeutically through most of the issues life throws at us, including loss. I am an IATP Registered, Certified Level II Trauma Practitioner and believe as humans, we all experience developmental and/or relational trauma, no matter how much we may overlook or minimise the impact of events that can leave lasting emotional scars and negative beliefs about ourselves. I have found EMDR to be highly effective for trauma resolution over a shorter time frame, although I am a certified NLP and hypnotherapy professional, which means there are a variety of options depending upon a client's specific needs.
I have a special interest in eating disorders and have achieved Master Practitioner status in Eating Disorders and Nutritional Interventions. I find it beneficial for clients to observe all factors impacting upon their well-being, with a holistic view that may mean attending to nutrition, exercise, relationships and work/life balance. I have specific training to work with complex eating disorders, which are so often connected to past and present emotional matters and early trauma.
As a RUL accredited Mediator with an interest in systemic therapy, I am interested in supporting and resolving complex couples issues and family dynamics. No matter what issues we face, there is always the background of existential anxiety and choice to contend with – or creating new possibilities. I subscribe to the BACP code’s highest level of ethical practice and thoroughly enjoy the continuum of education in this field, to ensure I have the ability to provide clients with the best possible outcomes.
