Experience and Skills

I have over 20 years of experience working therapeutically with individuals, families and other professionals in times of difficulty and crisis to restore health, harmony and well-being.  My passion for this work comes as much from my own personal experiences and interest in continual learning and development as from my professional knowledge and skills and my commitment to making the most of life.  My areas of experience and skills are;

 

  • Attachment and relational difficulties – individual and families

  • Attentional and developmental difficulties – including ASD and learning disabilities

  • Behavioural difficulties - including behaviour which others may find challenging

  • Emotional difficulties - anger, anxiety, depression/low mood, frustration, regulation difficulties

  • Identity issues and difficulties with developmental transitions – individuals and families

  • Physical health issues including chronic pain, medically unexplained symptoms

  • Trauma – including childhood sexual abuse

Therapies Offered
I work in collaboration with clients to integrate and adapt approaches to each person’s unique needs. I draw on a range of different models of psychotherapy including cognitive, behavioural, psychodynamic and systemic to understand problems from multiple perspectives. In addition. I have a strong interest in the biological and neurological basis to psychological difficulties and drawing on both cutting edge research and ancient sources of wisdom to bring a holistic understanding and approach to ensure the most effective and broad reaching interventions to support your overall health and well-being. Where appropriate I can integrate body based approaches into sessions to ensure that change is embodied and not just an intellectual exercise. 

 

My approach to working with you

 

“I have genuine pleasure in supporting people to discover their potential and fully engage with life. I understand this can challenging at times and do not underestimate the courage and commitment it takes to dare for something different. I look forward to working together to help you to step out of the shadows and reconnect with yourself, others and life.”
