Counselling/Psychotherapy

My core training was Person Centred and I studied at Surrey University.

 

I am an  Advanced Certified Practitioner  in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma, attachment and developmental wounds.

I have specialist training for the treatment of complex trauma, Dissociative Identity Disorder and Ritual Abuse.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy helps to heal the disconnection between how we think, feel and sense things in our bodies using a blend of cognitive, emotional and body-focused interventions that address implicit memories and the neurobiological effects of trauma.

Attachment theory and the role of the body and brain in trauma and a “Three phase approach” to working with dissociation and Dissociative Identity Disorder have been significant further training.

Comprehensive Resource Model (Lisa Schwarz) promotes healing from traumatic experience within a context of resources to maintain adequate emotional regulation.

 

I incorporate creativity in my work:- Pastels, sand tray, clay, dolls, stones, shells,

writing and I offer inner-child work.

 

I offer counselling/psychotherapy for a range of issues including:

Emotional, physical, sexual abuse.

Depression, Anxiety, Stress

Gender identity

Relational difficulties

PTSD, Developmental Trauma, Attachment wounds, Dissociative Identity Disorder

I have regular professional supervision for my work as required by BACP. I am committed to my own professional and personal development.
