Trauma is a deeply personal and complex experience. Often, you may find yourself feeling stuck or unable to move past your trauma. You might feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious, afraid, and/or angry. Trauma can be a deeply isolating experience, and it's not uncommon for you to feel like no one else can truly understand what you are going through. It can sometimes feel like you are carrying a heavy burden that you can't share with others. This may make you feel even more alone and disconnected. Sometimes, you might find it difficult to trust others. You may be grappling with strong emotions like shame, guilt, and self-blame.

I can understand that for many taking those first steps to seek professional help it can be quite daunting. I am mindful of the need therefore to set people at ease from the outset. I accommodate what differing clients are looking for from a psychologist ranging from finding solutions and learning strategies to process-oriented approaches that provide the opportunity to safely explore, understand, and heal the emotional pain that often underlies psychological stress and problematic behaviour.

Many of my clients are exhausted from a life in which everyone else's needs have always been made more important than their own. From the earliest age, they weren't supported to have boundaries, and now find themselves struggling with self-esteem, low mood, anxiety, problems with keeping supportive friendships and partnerships alive, struggling to assert themselves at work or cope with professional demands, and feeling stuck in relationship dynamics in which they can't be their true self. They want to put their painful past behind them, and to have their needs recognised and allowed space going forward.

Our emotions tell a story, they direct our actions. But unless we are aware of how they influence what we do, they can often get in the way. Lou invites you to listen not only to the story that comes from your head, but also to what your body has to say. Developing greater awareness of your emotional experience and the skills to manage it can be the springboard to creating healthier relationships with self and others, and lead to a more productive life.

You react in ways you don't want to in your relationships and you have some idea of why. You sense it was something that happened with your parents, at school, or in your early relationships. You've read enough about it to think it might be an attachment issue, or that you've got some compulsion causing you to create the same issue over and over again. You want to change but you don't know how. You're experiencing anxiety, loneliness, a lack of meaning, or something more. You're hoping to feel safe, loved, loving, trusting, accepted, and excited in both your platonic and romantic relationships.

I work from the assumption that every person develops unique ways to deal with emotional/physical pain. Over time, these once useful adaptations can become automatic, habitual, and, alarmingly, the cause of more pain. Often, we are only aware that what once worked is no longer working. I have worked in a variety of settings with a variety of individuals, including with people experiencing justice involvement, people experiencing addiction, and people experiencing treatment in psychiatric hospital in-patient and out-patient settings.
