Experienced counsellor and specialist trauma recovery psychotherapist with a background in body centred therapy work. The basis of my work is person centred which integrates easily with other ways of working.

Experienced in working with people having difficulties with:

  • depression
  • anxiety and stress/distress, including work related stress
  • low self esteem and low self confidence
  • identity issues
  • life transitions
  • relationship and attachment issues
  • family difficulties
  • abuse
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • bereavement, grief & loss

We talk, though mostly I listen, whilst providing a confidential and nonjudgmental space.

It is important to me to work with kindness whilst providing sufficient challenge and resources along the way. I will work with you to build trust, and create a safe therapeutic relationship where you can feel free to explore at your own pace so you can begin to look at what needs attention at deeper levels. In my practice I do not provide the answers, but I will work with you to enable the process of you coming to your own answers.

I am experienced in working with people who have undergone trauma of most kinds including sexual violence and domestic abuse.  

My background in body work includes:

 - Neo Reichian Postural Integration /Therapeutic Massage ITEC

 - Dance/Drama including therapy work (BA Hons)

 - Specialisation in trauma recovery using Sensorymotor Psychotherapy and TRE (Trauma Release Exercises)

Over ten years counselling experience - NHS ,voluntary sector, private practice. Organisations I have worked for include, M.I.N.D, Children 1st (Formerly the RSPCC in Scotland), Domestic Abuse Community Services, Health in Mind, CSA Counselling Services.

I can not offer face-to-face counselling at the moment but can offer online therapy with Skype. I have undertaken the BACP CPD courses in Online counselling and am a very experienced practitioner in this area.
