About

Trauma is not the thing that happened to you, but the way in which you responded to the thing that happened to you. Trauma is the overwhelm of your physical and psychological capacity. This may have happened suddenly, or gradually over a period of time. Issues may manifest in a number of ways including painful thoughts and memories, anxiety, depression, rage, physical pain and sensations (including unexplained physical symptoms, CFS, fibromyalgia and low energy). Many people come to therapy with a fear and distrust of their overwhelming emotions and sensations, which they then seek to eradicate. I’ll help you see things differently.
By viewing our thoughts, sensations, feelings and behaviours not as symptoms, but as parts of us which are attempting to cope with life, we can learn about, and work with them in a compassionate and non-pathologising way. We can then heal those parts of us that got hurt some time back in our life, and have remained frozen in that time - until now!
Asking for help and committing to therapy can feel like a big leap. It can be helpful to acknowledge that you’ve already probably had to draw on your courage and resources - resources that you can build upon. If you feel like you might like to work with me, get in touch and we can chat about how I might be able to help you.
