Welcome to my website. I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and EMDR Consultant with over 30 years clinical experience in private practice working with a broad range of emotional difficulties. I also supervise other therapists both in private practice and in the NHS. I specialize in working with trauma, whether sustained in a single incident like a traffic accident ,prolonged danger as in combat, repeated shocking experiences in first line services or the result of neglect rejection or abuse in childhood. Adverse childhood experiences (ACE’s) have a long-lasting effect and damage physical and psychological health in many ways that may not be obvious but underly many later life difficulties, especially repeating problems with relationships.Psychological therapy has developed enormously over the last 30 years and has become much clearer about the nature and origins of human emotional difficulties and therefore how to work with them. I therefore think and feel that no part of us can be neglected in therapy so I take all aspects of your life into account in order to get as complete a picture of you in your world as possible. This includes your history, physical ,psychological and spiritual life and health. I then work using a blend of listening,reflecting and developing rapport to establish an emotionally safe space to begin to explore more deeply.
