I value individual differences, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationship. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that i am not a fixer and i don't have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two. I know that I am ok to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk into a dark place. My aim as a therapist is to create a space where you can explore your difficulties, develop an understanding of where and how these difficulties arise to enable you to find ways to make changes.

I believe in healing and I done it myself using the modality of IFS by Richard Schwartz and I am still healing discovering new hidden corners in my psychic. Being with childhood developmental trauma myself in a home, where my emotional needs were not taken care and I was neglected, I know very well how you might feel. I know also that it is important to put your intention in the universe or make a goal for your healing then for sure you will be able to succeed to accomplish it. It do not need to be difficult neither so time consuming. I will teach you how to use IFS and you will be able to heal in between sessions.

I work with adult men and women of all ages anywhere in the UK offering online video and telephone counselling. Quite a lot of us, at some stage in our lives, have been in a situation where we have nobody around us we can talk to. Even though you may have family and friends who care about you, you can still feel alone and isolated or feel that you do not want to ‘bother’ or ‘burden’ them with your feelings.

Overcome your Past & Fears, Find Self-Compassion & Resilance, and Flourish. The search for a contented and satisfying life is not easy. It’s even more difficult if you’re wrestling with a negative inner voice or baggage from your past. Perhaps you’ve forgotten what real joy or feeling safe is like? I understand. It’s not your fault. It’s because you have a tricky human brain with a sensitive threat system, that can tie you up in knots trying to cope.

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.
