About me and my Practice
Following spinal injury and subsequent surgery, I left the field of nursing. During the course of recovery, I benefited immensely from therapy. The benefits received, encouraged me to retrain to help others in a similar way. My experience has been formed spanning 40 years in the caring sector with nurse medical background, rigorous training, much ongoing professional development, my own batch of life experiences and listening to the numerous accounts of others.
I work in an integrative, non-judgemental way, confidentially assisting you to overcome issues preventing you from leading a fulfilling happy life. It can be good to talk to someone not directly involved in your life, helping you see things more clearly, make sense of them and often form different perspectives. This can be most self-empowering for you.
I also have advanced training in trauma therapy as in EMDR. EMDR helps dissipate painful memories or emotions from the past which continue to trigger you in present day, and when used in the hands of an experienced practitioner, can have profoundly favourable affects utilising only, your own minds natural healing processes.
“Maybe you are struggling to make sense of things…. I feel sure I can help you to break through and reach understanding…. Don’t worry if you are uncertain which therapy can help you as we can work that out together. I can advise and help to plan your way forward. Everyone is unique and individual, with a different set of needs or requirements. Often following sessions, people feel a sense of relief, as it might of been the first time they have been able to voice or express their difficult feelings”…
