Although I work with a variety of issues, my passion is to support those who have suffered from a traumatic experience(s) that influences their quality of life. This might include adverse childhood experiences, attachment disruption, sexual or emotional abuse/ neglect or loss. I am here to support if you are suffering from low self-esteem, low confidence, anger, anxiety, dissociation, and want to feel differently about yourself and life.

As a relational humanistic psychotherapist, I specialise in creating a warm and safe, non-judgmental and empathic space where clients are able to explore any difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are getting in the way of healthy living, gaining insight into how to go forward. Oftentimes having suffered a significant life event such as a loss or bereavement, perhaps a divorce or other confusing relationship issues in the distant past, we become blocked, needing effective strategies and techniques to continue. I work online (during Covid lockdowns) by telephone or face to face, in both short and long term settings.

Life can be very challenging & overwhelming and we may need extra support. It takes enormous courage to reach out & ask for help. Asking for help is a daunting experience in itself. You've taken the first step to seek guidance and support. Are you struggling with some of life's difficulties, and/or been diagnosed with health problems. I have vast experience with the military. If your feeling overwhelmed and would like to be heard, and to explore your thoughts and feelings and don't want to be judged, then you have come to the right place. I offer what I hope is affordable counselling.

Starting personal therapy is a big decision and it makes sense to wonder where to start and which psychotherapist to choose. How would you know what’s right for you? Making the decision to tell someone about the things that bother you most is not an easy one. However, if you are here, I would guess there’s a need to talk. Whatever it is - whether it is problems in the present, memories of the past or worries about the future - I can promise you a safe and confidential space to talk about it. A journey to find out what can make things better for you is a lot easier if you’re not alone in it.

This acts as a “roadmap” for our therapeutic understanding and intervention and will be covered in the initial assessment session(s). We will agree on how many sessions to meet for (usually six to 24, depending on the duration and complexity/severity) and help you work towards your set goals and values.

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Counsellors

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like Cognitive behavioural therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behaviour therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioural, dialectical behaviour, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioural and dialectical behaviour therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom which may include antipsychotics, antidepressants, or anti-anxiety drugs.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
