About

I have expertise in working with trauma/complex trauma, anxiety and depressive disorders, personality disorders, and stress. I also have expertise in working with first responders, and with health and medical professionals who have experienced burnout and occupational trauma, including vicarious trauma. I use a range of evidence-based therapies, and prioritise the creation of a safe, nurturing and trauma-informed space in therapy.
I see therapy as an attachment-focused relationship, and a commitment made together to hold space for you so you can safely explore the difficulties which bring you to treatment. I am trained in a range of therapies, including EMDR, CPT (for PTSD), schema therapy, ACT, CBT, and DBT. I provide PTSD-specific treatment, as well as trauma-informed care.
My therapeutic practice is built on the principles of warmth, respect, collaboration, and evidence-based practice. I only use therapies which have been tested and shown to work, and carefully match the difficulties you have with the interventions I offer. I am trained in a range of therapy styles, and bring attunement and respect to the therapy room.
