I specialise in trauma and anxiety, and offer EMDR therapy specifically for trauma/ PTSD .
I became a therapist because I like people - I like to understand their stories and how that has brought them to where they are. When you are feeling stuck because of anxiety or depression it is usually pretty difficult to believe anyone would want to listen. Well I do. I want to help you discover and explore the events, thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behaviour that have made you feel trapped so that you can make changes. Imagine being able to see your friends, attend events, even just sleep, without anxious or self critical thoughts wearing you down. That is what therapy with me can offer.

Peri and post-natal depression, menopause, fatigue & PTSD .
I am a counsellor and registered general nurse specialising in occupational health, and my priorities have been about the physical and psychological care of my patients and clients. I use the biopsychosocial model to support clients' biological, psychological and social experiences and issues. I listen to why the client feels they need therapy, and we discuss the most appropriate way forward which may include, for example, CBT or solution-focussed therapy. I am welcoming and trustworthy and my approach to clients is irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, race or religious beliefs.

I help people with chronic pain and illness to experience a better quality of life in a holistic way. This may involve exploring and working with related root issues, beliefs, perceptions, physical sensations, present or past experiences, emotions, lifestyle and unconscious blocks to wellbeing, freeing up more of your energy and enabling a deeper connection with yourself, others and life. I also help people overcome stress, anxieties and/or trauma related to medical procedures (including pregnancy/adverse birth experiences), whether they are fears or phobias without a known cause, or due to previous difficult experiences.

Do you feel out of touch with life and yourself? Do you feel a heaviness that you think will never lift? Do you feel that a ‘normal’, happy life is out of reach? It can feel like a life without anxiety, hopelessness and fear is impossible and that the experiences and relationships you yearn to fully enjoy and be present for are unattainable.

Choosing a therapist can be a tricky task, there are just so many! As a guide, a big factor for therapeutic success is 'connection' - also known as 'the therapeutic alliance'. There is little you can see from a profile but perhaps take a moment to pause and check inwardly whether there is potential for a good therapeutic relationship. This practice is known as 'focusing'. I frequently use this method to help my clients access edge of awareness experiences that often were part of their life for many years. If you'd like to explore parts of yourself that you find burdening or at least unhelpful my approach may be of help.

Often clients contact me when other therapy has not helped them in the way they had hoped. This is often due to the complexity of difficulties being layered perhaps in a history of trauma. Distress in the body and mind can be triggered by what appears to be something superficial. This can open up the past or come at a time when our emotional resilience is low so this event has a greater impact than it may have done. We can find ourselves not being able to function in our normal way. Many clients often identify as 'good copers' and those who 'just get on with it'. Perhaps we can't now - this is frightening and can derail us.

Maybe you are bereaved and feeling hopeless, but can't discuss this with family? Maybe you are feeling anxious and isolated, working from home and you are fearful of discussing job security with your boss? Maybe you don’t even know why you are feeling so sad or overwhelmed but you do know it is beginning to impact your daily life. Counselling is a talk therapy and it is extremely useful for exploring what is going on beneath the surface we present to the world, that version of ourselves that tries so hard to keep all of the plates spinning at all costs. I want to help you with whatever you are feeling, you are not alone with this.

Many of the people who come to me for help struggle with personal worries and concerns that stop them from living happy & fulfilled lives. Anxiety, depression and stress are common problems and can massively affect self confidence and self esteem, which in turn affects relationships, work and happiness. Life sometimes gives us upsetting and challenging situations ; exploring and learning new coping techniques and strategies can be extremely helpful and have a significantly positive impact personally as well as benefiting all relationships

Life can be overwhelming at times and it’s hard to know what to do for the best. The Covid era has been a strange time that’s tested relationships, problematised goals, brought great suffering, loss and anxiety, and made even straightforward decisions and plans feel impossible. Even aside from recent events, it’s so rare in our day-to-day lives to have chance to pause, reflect, and explore what we want and what the blocks might be to getting it. I'd like to work with you if you've ever felt stuck, lost, confused, lonely, sad, uncertain or guilty about anything, past or present - we can explore and untangle those feelings together.

Counselling/ Psychotherapy: Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing you to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in your attitude, behaviours & overall well-being. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable you to make your own choices, reach your own decisions & go forward with a greater sense of clarity & self-management. Hypnotherapy & mindfulness can be introduced as a type of complementary therapy in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions are made to rid you of emotional blockage. Mindfulness keeps us focused

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
