A calm, experienced psychotherapist, ready to listen to your troubles and help you find a way through them. A Personal Trainer, using the power of exercise to reduce depression, anxiety, stress and trauma.
I believe there is always hope and that people can recover from the most appalling experiences. It is my passion to work with people affected by trauma, abuse, depression and anxiety to recover and rebuild their lives.
Free yourself from the grip of trauma
I have been a therapist for over twenty years and have learnt from sixteen years of working with survivors of political violence and torture that people have an incredible capacity to recover from appalling experiences,that fundamentally, therapy can play a powerful role in aiding that recovery.
I am also a Level 3 Personal Trainer and I use the power of outdoor exercise to engage the body's natural healing mechanisms to aid recovery from trauma, depression and anxiety. I lead fitness sessions outdoors to reengage with the healing power of nature.
It is my passion to help people who have survived a wide range of traumas, who wish to escape from its grip and rebuild their lives. I have a special interest in people who have survived childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault and rape, birth-related trauma, assaults, terrorism, bullying and work-related stress.
I now work privately in East London and Chancery Lane and by Skype and Telephone. I have held director-level posts in two charities and use my understanding of the pressures of such roles to help executives work through work-related stress. I am a qualified and accredited Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, with an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies. I am also a qualified EMDR Therapist and trained in in Narrative Exposure Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I hold a Level Three Personal Trainer qualification (Please go to my Blog Page for articles about the mind and body and the therapeutic power of exercise.)
I would like to help you free yourself from the grip of these feelings: For twenty years, I have been helping people work through difficult traumatic experiences, depression, stress and anxiety. Below you can find information about the services I offer:
EMDR : EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITISATION & REPROCESSING
EMDR is an evidence-based therapy developed to help people process troubling traumatic memories. It uses eye movements and other forms of bilateral stimulation to reconnect areas of the brain which hold the trauma with parts which hold the capacity to heal. The brain is stimulated to begin healing itself, the start of recovery. EMDR can also help with depression, future anxieties, pain and phobias.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (PDP) is about working together to build trust and safety so that we can explore the origins of difficulties you may be having in your life. We will look at how memories, feelings, relationships and patterns from your early life and childhood are impacting on the way you feel now and how you on with the people in your life. PDP helps bring into awareness, unconscious memories, patterns, relationships and feelings we may not be aware of but which affect us every day as we interact with those around us and influence how we feel and behave. PDP helps repair the damage of the past to help you live freely in the present.
SOLUTION FOCUSED BRIEF THERAPY
Solution Focused Brief Therapy is designed to help you find solutions to the problems and dilemmas in your life. SFBT spends less time on the origins of a problem and more time on finding out what works to solve the problem. We will imagine what your life would be like if the problem did not exist and find a path to get there.
SKYPE OR TELEPHONE THERAPY
if its easier for you, or if you are in another country, we can arrange to have therapy by Skype or Telephone. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss further.
