Psychotherapist/ Counsellor specialising in trauma and an Accredited EMDR practitioner
I have been a counsellor and psychotherapist for 11 years. I specialise in trauma focused therapy to help treat psychological trauma and use EMDR and CBT trauma focused therapy for this purpose. Using trauma therapy I work with people who may have PTSD, adult trauma and childhood complex trauma presentations. I believe in treating the person not the symptom and therefore work in a holistic way, ensuring that the client is seen and heard and the appropriate use of therapy is tailored to meet the needs of the individual.
My work is not limited to trauma and I utilise my counselling and psychotherapy training to work with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, lack of confidence and issues involved in day to day living.
I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist in Private Practice for the past 5 years. Prior to this, both pre and post qualification in 2003, I also worked in a number of NHS settings for nearly 20 years. As a Clinical Psychologist I am able to offer support across a broad range of mental health and emotional difficulties throughout the life span. I tend to draw integratively on the three primary models from my training: CBT, Systemic and Psychodynamic therapy. I also have a growing interest in Mindfulness and Compassion based approaches. I try to offer a range of flexible appointment times throughout the week and am registered with all the main health insurance providers.
