I offer integrative therapy to adults with the aim of ensuring that I adapt to your unique and specific needs. Common factor research suggests that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important aspects of facilitating change and this would be essential when choosing a therapist to besides you on this journey of change.
I hold a trauma specialism which includes: Acute, Chronic & Complex Trauma.
I also work with individuals who are experiencing low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, stress and loss in the meaning of life.
Additionally I also specialise with adult children who grew up with a seriously mentally/emotionally/psychologically distressed parent. Some parents may have received a diagnosis such as ‘Schizophrenia’, ‘Bi-polar’ or another type of ‘psychosis’ etc. I’m particular interested in how psychological trauma becomes transferred within generational cycles, along with the interplay of cultural and societal contents.
How I can support you:
- Overcome insecurities, fears, anxiety and stress
- Recovery from flashbacks, improve sleep disturbance and associated trauma related symptoms
- Improve your self-esteem and confidence
- Build your resilience for sustainable life changes etc.
