Short term Counselling
Shorter term counselling can help to process challenging situations, thoughts and feelings. Work collaboratively with me to decide what you most need right now to heal. I am trained to take an integrative approach, being able to apply the theories of person centered, psychodynamic, cognitive and other approaches such as mindfulness/creative work to help you
Long Term Therapy
Longer term therapy, through a strong therapeutic relationship, helps to explore how past relationships and patterns of relating impose upon the present. This includes defence mechanisms, transference and trauma responses
Somatic Trauma Therapy &
Somatic Trauma Therapy is a safe and effective approach to healing trauma involving management of the nervous system responses, practical techniques to manage symptoms and gentle, timely processing of events. I can also offer therapeutic support for people who are interested and involved in the 'path' of Nonduality
Hi there, thanks for visiting my site. I am an experienced NHS trained therapist, devoted partner and mother to my young child. I have a background in Human Biology and I hold an MSc in Psychology. I live and work at home, at the foot of the South Downs in West Sussex. I originally trained as an integrative therapist, in Person Centered, Pyschodynamic and Cognitive modalities but I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience over the last 5 years in the areas of trauma/somatic trauma therapy, mindfulness, bilateral stimulation and much more.
I have had the honour of working for different charities and services: Rape and Sexual Assault Charity (RASAC, Guildford), Catalyst Drug and Alcohol Service (Surrey), Youth Counselling Service (on behalf of Virgin Care/NHS), Phoenix Project Homelessness project (Worthing) and The Eaves Psychological Therapies Clinic in Guildford.
You'll experience a warm, non-judgemental, steady presence when working with me. I work in a collaborative way with my clients and always strive to establish an authentic, nurturing relationship with my clients in which they feel held, understood and valued.
