About Me

My approach to therapy is very practical: I think that it should free you from 'symptoms' and also enable you to do things that you couldn't do before, to experience real happiness, and to have warm, supportive relationships and a fulfilling life.
There has been a paradigm shift in the practice of psychotherapy over the last few decades, and we have a much clearer understanding now of how adverse life experiences and 'quiet t trauma' shape our emotions and responses. If you’ve had therapy in the past, you might find working with me quite different. I will answer all your questions and help you to make sense of what you’re going through, so that it’s no longer confusing and the process of healing is not mysterious but understandable. You will learn to take charge of your emotions, calm anxiety and make yourself feel better when you need to, and we will work together to gradually resolve difficult experiences or trauma and negative beliefs about yourself that may have been holding you back. We will also reactivate the skills and capacities that will enable you to stand up for yourself and feel alive, strong and competent in day-to-day life.
My work is integrative and informed by the most up-to-date developments in psychotherapy and neuroscience, and draws on many different treatment models, including relational psychotherapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, EMDR, ego state therapy, Internal Family Systems, the Structural Dissociation Model, Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, yoga therapy and transpersonal psychotherapy. As well as talking therapy, it may include gentle relaxation and breathing exercises, mindfulness, working with the body and with dreams. I am also an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner and weave EMDR into my work.

My areas of specialism include:

Difficulties in relationships

Inability to make a decision, or to do things that you want to do; 'stuckness', sabotaging yourself

Acute or recurring anxiety or depression; panic attacks; nightmares

Not knowing who you are or what you want, or not being able to assert yourself

C-PTSD or developmental trauma, dissociation and dissociative disorders

Bereavement, loss or change; loss of meaning or purpose

Discovering or going deeper into your spiritual path, whatever it may be

Supervision on complex trauma for beginning and experienced therapists of different orientations

As therapists we are all learning all the time, and I keep updating my work through reading, consultation with colleagues, practising yoga and attending courses and seminars, especially in the areas of relational neuroscience, complex developmental trauma, working with the body and yoga therapy - for instance, I have completed Dr Bessel van der Kolk's Intensive Trauma Treatment course, Deborah Korn's course, Working with Complex Trauma: Optimal Integration of Treatment Models, at the Cape Cod Institute in the US, EMDR Europe Standard Accredited Training, advanced EMDR training with Dolores Mosquera in London and Attachment-Focused EMDR training with Laurel Parnell in London.
