Announcement icon I offer both online (Zoom) and face-to-face sessions, depending on client preference and pandemic circumstances.
I provide therapy for people who are facing uprooting life challenges, experience overwhelm, sadness, anxiety, or simply seek to heal from emotional wounds from the past. I started my journey as a volunteer for the Samaritans Charity and have ten years of experience as a support group facilitator. Themes processed in this group often dealt with matters such as sexual orientation, family estrangement, trauma, and shame. I have a special interest in neurobiologically-informed psychotherapy for complex trauma and adverse childhood experiences and am currently in the final stages of training at the Metanoia Institute in London.
I have a background in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Integrative Counselling and am experienced in providing therapy for the mental health impacts of abuse, trauma, as well as psychological pressures arising from chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, or conditions like endometriosis. My experience has been shaped by my ongoing work for a local Women's Centre
Going to therapy can seem daunting, so feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how the process would work or if we would be a good fit. I embrace a compassionate, open, and cooperative stance with a focus on the integration of our bodily, emotional, and thought-based processes. In many ways starting therapy can be the best form of self care.
