My speciality is dealing with trauma related issues in particular domestic violence (both female and male survivors), sexual abuse and post traumatic stress.
Clients come to me because they feel something is not quite right in their lives. They may be anxious about relationships, work, college or simply feel that they cannot cope with life. They want someone to listen to them in a non judgemental way. Many are stuck with past patterns of behaviours or negative thought patterns which no longer work for them. They may be wondering what therapy entails so I aim to put them at their ease when they first contact me. Clients tell me our sessions are relaxing, practical, sometimes even fun as we work together to make positive changes to their lives.

I have clinical experience working with emotional and sexual abuse , bereavement, anxiety, depression, medical diagnoses, and life transitions.
I understand we experience our world individually, but collectively we all face challenges, difficulties and choices along the way. Sometimes we can do this alone and sometimes we need help. I have experience working with trauma which has often been denied or painfully avoided in the past and continues to be stored in the body today - unacknowledged and unheard. I work with emotional, social and relational issues. Together we can work to find the best way forward for you. We can consider your choices and ways to help you cope 'to live in the present moment, where life is found.' I work with both Individual Adults (18+) and Couples.

I work in a trauma-informed manner and have specific experience and training in sexual abuse /trauma.
Has a recent or past negative experience left you feeling lost or stuck? Maybe you’ve tried to just get on with life but inside you still feel broken, replaying events in your mind and asking yourself why or how this happened. Perhaps you know what happened to you was traumatic or maybe you’ve told yourself it “wasn’t that bad”. Some days you seem to feel all the emotions all at once, and other days you feel nothing at all. Other people simply don’t understand, leaving you feeling alone and like you don’t matter. Most things in your life, your relationships, work or education might be affected and you long to break free from it all.

You may be feeling life is just too much to manage right now, perhaps you've had a bereavement or loss, or maybe something from the past is impacting on how you are feeling. Asking for professional help can feel daunting, but once you've made that decision, it can bring relief and then finding the right person, who can hear your concerns and support you, is really important. I can offer a safe, confidential space and give you the time and space to explore what is going on for you, to help you gain awareness and insight into what's troubling you and help you reach your goals.

Are you experiencing a difficult or challenging time in your life? Perhaps you are feeling stuck and unable to move forward? Whatever your reason for considering therapy and viewing my profile, it is often the case that we 'hit the wall' or 'crash' emotionally before we can identify that we may need professional support. When our usual coping mechanisms no longer work the struggle can be overwhelming. As your therapist I recognise this as your first and critical step toward positive change. You are I'm sure familiar with the phrase 'if you do what you've always done...you get what you've always got' and how true it is.....

Hello. You're probably here because you are finding life difficult in some way. Life can be really hard, and it can sometimes feel even harder looking for support. As a therapist I love helping people with that by providing a safe, non-judgemental space to explore and work through some of these difficult things together. In therapy we do this through developing a 'therapeutic relationship'. This means that we commit to working together over a sustained period of time to understand and process what is going on, so that positive to change can begin to happen. This isn't always easy, but it's absolutely worth it.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
