Psychological therapy (main models EMDR and IFS)

Sometimes you just need somewhere to talk and work out what is going wrong, or perhaps, just how to grow towards being your best you. I can provide a safe, non-judgemental space to help you do this. Together we can come to an understanding of what might be contributing to your difficulties, the strengths and resources you already have, and how to move towards your goals.

I am increasingly specialising in the use of transformative approaches such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems) due to their inherently compassionate and non-shaming stance, and having experienced their powerful healing effects for a wide range of people and circumstances. However, I do also draw upon and integrate a wide range of psychological theories and therapies (including attachment theory, systems theory, and ACT) in order to personalise my approach to your particular needs. I particularly enjoy working therapeutically with neurodivergent people (e.g. autistic, ADHD), who have often experienced more than their fair share of traumas.

I am also a qualified and well-experienced ADHD and autism diagnostician.  Although I no longer accept referrals for "standalone" assessments, I can still provide this service if you are an existing therapy client, wondering whether you might be neurodivergent, and think that a formal diagnosis might be of benefit to you.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, on 1 December 2020, we made the same decision as many other services to give up our physical offices and move all our services completely online.  Although this was a huge shift for many therapists and clients worldwide, studies have suggested that online psychological therapy can be just as effective as face to face sessions (if not more so, in some cases).  It also provides clients with a much wider choice of therapists, as it eliminates travel time and location is no longer an obstacle. 

If you would like to experience these benefits from any location throughout the UK, all that is required is a device with a webcam, microphone and speakers, a private space, and a reasonably reliable broadband connection.  A laptop is best, but phone or tablet may be sufficient, depending on the work to be undertaken.  Please do get in touch and we can discuss it further.  I look forward to working with you!
