About me

I am a qualified and accredited Psychotherapist, Counsellor and EMDR Practitioner, registered with the UKCP and the EMDR Association UK. I offer therapy tailored to the individual’s need and support people aged 18 and above.

I have experience of working with many issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, sleep problems, pain, ocd and phobias. For several years I have worked in a busy Rehabilitation Centre working with Firefighters and their families aswell as Prison Officers and Ambulance Personnel. Through this work, I fully appreciate the impact of injury, long term health conditions, pain, physical and psychological trauma.

I am an Integrative Therapist which means I draw on several modalities of therapy, those being Transactional Analysis, EMDR and Solution Focussed Therapy, and I also integrate Mindfulness and CBT techniques. Creative interventions may also be introduced. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach in therapy, and so being able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches enables me to tailor the therapy to your needs.

Mental health issues can have an impact on our daily lives affecting our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Daily worries can develop into longer term problems and seeking professional support can help you move through and beyond these.

I work in a non-judgemental and supportive way, giving you the protected space to explore your feelings and emotions and identify areas of change and goals. We work together aiming to achieve these, whilst I facilitate you in understanding thoughts and feelings.

One area which I am passionate about is the connection between mind and body and how they are intrinsically linked. Physical injury or a health condition can impact your mental health and mental health issues can manifest in physical issues if not addressed. So I work holistically exploring both mind and body.

As one of the only accredited EMDR Practitioners in Cumbria, I am eager to share the effectiveness of this therapy. I have helped clients work through trauma and to regain stability and peace using EMDR. The satisfaction and joy of seeing clients being relieved of intrusive memories, flashbacks, and distressing thoughts is something I will never tire of!
