About me

I specialise in supporting clients who have experienced complex, relational and developmental trauma. I primarily draw on Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis models of therapy to inform my work with clients. Most of my clinical practice focuses on exploration of relationship patterns. This includes the relationship you have with yourself, others and your surroundings and we delve into how this relates to the presenting challenges.

My approach is trauma informed as practice with the understanding of how trauma impacts on the mind and body. I work with people to understand the core experiences that have led to their difficulties. I utilise this approach as it is more likely to lead to the client experiencing long-lasting change and insight as opposed to pure focus on symptom management. Traumatic experiences consist of anything from a singular traumatic event or ongoing oppression through systemic, societal and family dynamics. In addition, my approach is also informed by systemic theory as I support my clients to become aware of and understand their experience of the systems around them (including family, work, culture, society) and how this has influenced their beliefs and contributed to their challenges.

Areas of interest

I have 10 years experience working psychologically in a variety of settings. This includes inpatient NHS and private hospital settings, secondary and primary care and within the charity and voluntary sector. In my last NHS post, which I left in March 2022, I worked in an Occupational Health and Staff Wellbeing Service.
