Having worked in the charity, private and public sector I am now building my own private practise in an area very close to my heart : relational and attachment trauma. I help young people, adults, families and couples towards secure attachment, to heal and to learn to live more comfortably, to more fully connect to themselves and with others. Through my work in trauma recovery I have became neuro informed and better able to understand the profiles and difficulties of those with ASD, ADHD, giftedness, twice / multiple exceptionality & sensory integration issues and how neuro diversity and trauma can be so often co-occurring.

It is possible to explore in-depth what stops us from being who we really want to be, to rediscover and reconnect with what’s alive in us, and to allow us the possibility of changing unhelpful patterns. I believe that every individual is unique and I will tailor the therapeutic process to what suits you, working collaboratively, with a naturally developing process according to what is important and of value to you.

Making sense of life can be challenging at times. We might find ourselves contemplating if we are causing ourselves unnecessary unhappiness, or if this is just the way things are? Or, wondering if I should just keep sticking at 'it', or is it time for things to change? We might question if our feelings are important? (They might overwhelm us!) Or should I just listen to my thoughts instead? Should we try to forget about the past, or is it helpful to understand it? Might we be living our lives in 'survival mode' when we could be 'thriving' instead?

I believe that my specialism in working with trauma, using a variety of specialist trauma approaches which include, Therapeutic Reparenting, EMDR and Somatic Psychotherapy models, can benefit your healing journey.
For some time now you might have been struggling to make sense of how you are feeling and wish to talk things through with a professional. This could relate to difficulties with your mood and some behaviours you are not happy with and want to explore and work on these. Perhaps this was because of a recent event, or something that is related to your early childhood experiences, or even a combination of different life circumstances. You may be thinking that despite already seeking help for some of the issues that you have been facing, you feel unfulfilled and think that something is missing in terms of healing.

Do you feel detached from who you really are and want to connect with others as your best self? Do you want to find peace, contentment, joy and start living your life to the full?

Sometimes I may invite somatic exercises and creative interventions into the relationship as an alternative to conversation, which can be very powerful.
I have always championed a person's ability to empower themselves and develop a stronger self connection and connection to others. It is a privilege to share in the personal challenges and ventures of each unique individual I work with in therapy. If you need to find a space to really be listened to, make sense of past, present or future events, discuss personal issues and learn how to move into a deeper understanding of yourself, I would be honoured to be there alongside you.

Somatic Counsellors

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
