When a crisis, loss or big transition happens, it can seem impossible to know how to find a way through. Sometimes we can find that we have veered off course in life, and have ended up caught in a cycle where we feel stuck, unfulfilled and trapped. Reaching out to ask for help can be daunting. But seeking help can be one of the most important actions we can take to improve our mental health.
In Psychological Therapy, we will explore what you are facing, get an understanding of your difficulties, identify what changes you would like to make, and come up with a plan, specific to your needs and wishes.
I draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Person-Centred Therapy approaches. I also make use of mindfulness and compassion-focused techniques. I specialise in providing Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a powerful therapy for treating the effects of trauma.
My approach is customised to empower each individual client, supporting them to take control of their mental health and live a full and vital life.

- Social anxiety
- Health anxiety
- Relationship problems
- Psychosis and unusual experiences
- Workplace issues
- Separation and divorce
- Self-esteem issues

- Bereavement and Traumatic Grief
Sometimes, when traumatic events happen, memories get stored in the body as well as the mind. This can mean that the memories show up in distressing and intrusive ways, getting in the way of normal life.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an innovative and evidence-based treatment for difficulties arising from traumatic events. This includes, but is not limited to, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Grief.
EMDR is a powerful therapy that helps reduce the impact of traumatic memories. EMDR can be highly effective for treating flashbacks, nightmares, and other long-term emotional effects of trauma and loss.
I am an Accredited Practitioner with EMDR Europe. The status Accredited Practitioner is awarded to therapists who have demonstrated a level of skill and experience in EMDR, and is a mark of trustworthiness and expertise in the approach.
