As human beings we are intrinsically connected.

Sadly, trauma comes into our lives in one way or another which can shift or even cut our connections. This may leave us feeling lost, confused and dysregulated. My aim is to walk people home to a healthier and more stable sense of connection with the self and others. To me, this is where ultimate wellbeing lives and can begin to flourish.


I  work with people by helping them navigate their experience of trauma. With the use of Somatic-based and creative clinical tools such as EMDR, BrainSpotting, TRE, Art Therapy and neurofeedback (NeuroOptimal) I believe trauma can not only be successfully processed but also support you towards holistic healing.

My priority as a trained psychotherapist is to provide a safe place where processing and healing can occur.


I have experience working with a range of diverse clients and backgrounds. I work with adolescents, adults and couples. I provide face to face sessions in addition to Skype sessions when needed.


I have highly developed ‘core counsellor’ skills including advanced listening, reflection and empathic responding. My therapeutic approach is strengths-based, which has worked effectively with people from all ages and situations.
