About me

Welcome to my profile!

I mainly work in private practice but do offer 50 mins sessions via BUPA Healthcare.

I am a highly qualified and experienced Counselling Psychotherapist and Hypno/Psychotherapist.
I have worked in private practice for over 20 years.
I am a Registrant of the British Council for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, (BACP). I am Registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, (UKCP). I am a fellow of the National Society if Talking Therapies. (NSTT).

I am an Accredited practitioner and /Consultant Supervisor of EMDR UK Association and EMDR Europe, (Eye Movement Desentisisation & Reprocessing (EMDR).
EMDR is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress stored in our brains and our in our automatic nervous system.

I mainly, yet not exclusively, work with clients who present with trauma symptoms and PTSD/complex trauma. I also supervise other EMDR practitioners who work with clients suffering from PTSD and traumatic related symptoms.

I am fully trained in Brainspotting.
Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body through its direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body's central nervous system.

Both EMDR and Brainspotting help to enable people to heal from emotional distress that are the result of a disturbing life experience.

I am a fully trained and qualified couples' counsellor and offer relationship therapy/couple therapy and psychosexual therapy. I originally trained with and worked as a Relate relationship and couple's therapist between 1999-2004.
I have been working with individuals and couples for over two decades.

Although my two main specialists area of work are related to trauma symptoms/PTSD and relationship therapy, I do have experience in working with a diverse range of issues, such as stress, anxiety, grief and loss, depression/low mood and phobias, low self confidence/self esteem, depression/low mood, psycho-sexual issues including loss of desire, retarded or premature ejaculation, porn addiction, sexual orientation; mid life crisis/loss of direction, performance anxiety including presentation anxiety and enhancing sports performance.

I am also a trained Hypno/Psychotherapy which is a form of psychotherapy that uses hypnosis and where appropriate use this as an adjunct in my practice.

Areas of interest

Although I deal with a wide range of issues, my main interests are ruptures with early attachment bonds.
An example of how an early attachment rupture might be affect many people is and become symptomatic is upon entering into an emotionally intimate relationship or upon having or raising children because these experiences wake up buried feeling about broken attachments(eg parents/caregivers).
