“Many years ago I knew nothing of therapy. I worked in the film and TV industry, my life was busy and I was in demand. However I fuelled my lifestyle with a lot of unhealthy behaviour. When things got to crisis point, I knew it was time to change. It took several years but I slowly became better at healing rather than hurting myself. I was so inspired by the people who partnered me in my healing process, that I retrained and took professional qualifications so I could help others.

A large part of my life is now committed to working with severe trauma, however trauma comes in many shapes and sizes often developmental trauma can be what is holding us back. All my clients are different and we will explore and collaborate on the right treatment programme for you.“

My personal experience of overcoming addiction, illness and trauma, shows me that the desire to change is vital. I work with individuals and couples who have had enough of destructive patterns and sincerely want to change their life.

I can stand alongside you while you grow, but I cannot do the healing for you. Only you can do that. When we find the key we become the experts in our own healing. My job is to support and empower you until you feel confident to step out on your own. Although I often work open ended we will have regular reviews to check out that we are moving in the right direction.

I work collaboratively and we chose an agreed treatment plan with regular reviews.
