I support children and families where sexual abuse or sexually concerning behaviours have become a road block for healthy functioning family life. I am passionate about supporting families who are grappling with the associated shame, stigma, loss and grief. I am especially interested in supporting families that have experienced sexual abuse between siblings or cousins. I am also strongly committed to finding creative ways to educate parents on what prevents children disclosing (or adults recognising these disclosures), along with the ripple effects that disclosures have on relationships with family members.

I specialist in supporting clients who have experienced trauma (including complex trauma), family violence, sexual assault , medical trauma, religious abuse and childhood issues.
Do you feel overwhelmed or are you finding it difficult to cope? Part of being human and living life, means that there are times when we need extra support, but it isn't always easy to reach out. Other times it's hard to reach out because we've experienced things so painful and traumatic that it feels like you will never be understood. This often leaves us feeling unworthy, not good enough and unsafe and burdened with a pain that can never be shared.

My specialities are trauma recovery (including from sexual assault & family violence), neurodiversity and couples counselling.
Hi, I'm Freya. I've been counselling for over 25 years, and a year ago started incorporating my animals (horses, dogs, cats) into my therapeutic practice. I work with all ages, and the people I work with are as unique as the issues they want to address. My clients are individuals, couples, and children. I have lived experience of neurodiversity (ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, HSP) and consequently work with a lot of people who are neurodiverse themselves. My work focusses on understanding why we are the way we are, combined with techniques that foster change and growth, with the end goal of increased well being and resilience.

Clients often want to change their behaviour and improve their lives as well as their relationships. However, fear, trauma and past hurt can cause ambivalence. Counselling can help clients work through the why, how and what of making this change. By using a number of modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centred, Strengths Based and Gestalt therapies, clients can find their way out of the dark. 'Beyond silence, there is always Hope'.
