Hello, I am a Psychotherapist, EMDR practitioner and Dramatherapist. In therapy, participants are supported to use creative expression to set goals, solve problems, express feelings and achieve improved mental health. Together in therapy there will be opportunities to consider how your personal life informs the way you experience the world. My work is influenced by trauma-informed approaches, which allow us to look at ourselves and understand why we may suffer. I am also a qualified secondary school teacher with extensive experience of working with people with trauma, autism, ADHD, anxiety, bereavement and loss.
I have worked with children, adolescents and their families for over 25 years, supporting their mental health and wellbeing, in education and other charitable organisations. My training in both the creative arts and in therapy has enabled me to provide a bespoke therapeutic service that is confidential, respectful, collaborative and non-judgemental.
I will offer you a safe space for you to be yourself. I provide both online and face-to-face sessions for individuals and groups. I work with people of all ages. If you are struggling, get in touch, and I will be there to support and nurture your personal growth. I provide an initial free telephone consultation.
