( PTSD ), Panic attacks, depression.
I am a solution focused counsellor, my training derives from the understanding that when essential emotional needs are met, a human being will be emotionally and mentally healthy.. its when our emotional needs are not being met or are unintentionally misused that undesirable mental states such as: anxiety, anger, depression, addiction and psychosis develop., for instance, misuse of the imagination - to conjure up the worst possible or threatening scenarios-is a common feature of all these states. I aim to work through how you got to this point in your life, to help support you in finding new ways to move forward and embrace life.

I found my way to being a Psychologist because I am deeply curious about people and what makes us ‘tick’ and I struggle to see suffering without doing something to help. For most of my week, I work for the NHS in the Complex Needs Service, with people who have experienced trauma and who have complex emotional needs. I am also a DBT Therapist in our NHS Trust’s small DBT Service. Whether you're looking for help with serious mental health difficulties or you're just feeling stuck and struggling with motivation, Psychological Therapy can help!

Life is challenging at times. You may feel very alone with upsetting thoughts and feelings, feel stuck, blocked or unsettled. There may be things you need to say, but you can't find the words or a trusted person to say them to, and that's painful. Taking the step to talk a counsellor is an excellent way get some relief and be really heard. It's a process, which maybe sooner, rather than late, help you feel less stuck, a bit more confident, a bit more empowered and a bit more resolved.

Life can be really complex and often overwhelming, leaving us at times feeling isolated and alone, even when we are surrounded by people. As such there might be many different reasons why people come into counselling. Sometimes the issues we experience have clear causes and explanations and at other times it might feel less obvious and harder therefore to identify. What I would hope to offer you is a place that feels safe, supportive and confidential where you are able to explore whatever it is for you personally that you want to address without fear of judgement and criticism.

The mind is a delicate and powerful part of ourselves, and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by negative thoughts and emotions. But it's important to remember that we all have the capability to harness the power of our minds to create balance and control in our lives. It can be difficult to navigate this on our own, but with the right guidance, you can transform your mind into your greatest ally. I understand that seeking help can feel daunting, but know that you are not alone. My goal is to create a warm and understanding environment where we can work together to make positive changes in all aspects of your life.

My approach in sessions is centred on you, focusing on the here and now, current situations and difficulties you are experiencing. How you are feeling and behaving at present is often linked to past experiences which remain unresolved and continue to impact on your health and well-being today. Our sessions are based on respect, compassion, empathy and honesty. I will support you in exploring your reasons for wanting therapy, within a non-judgmental environment. By creating a safe, open and genuine relationship with you, we can together find ways to deal with the difficulties you are experiencing. The age range I work with is 18+.

At times life can feel overwhelming and we can get to a point where we can feel stuck and need help to make sense of it all. This is where therapy can help you overcome issues that may have a negative impact on your life. I provide a safe confidential space for you to feel heard in a non-judgemental environment, which allows you to explore your feelings at your own pace. Together we can find ways to help deal with the difficulties you are experiencing; help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings and help you find your own way forward. I believe the most important element of therapy is to build a trusting relationship.

Changes often take time and effort. As you read this, you may be confused, feeling stuck or have difficulty finding direction to go as you are going through a major transition in your life. Being 'between' different life stages, countries and cultures, jobs and education, different family roles can be a struggle and it takes a lot of energy to carry on moving forward. You may be needing somewhere safe to stop, have your breath back and examine what is happening around and inside of you so that you can recalibrate yourself and start moving on.

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.
