Certified Brainspotting therapist
I am an accredited psychotherapist (CBT, EMDR and Brainspotting), and I offer help either short, mid or long term. Do get in touch if you are struggling at the moment and we can discuss together what we can do to help you.
I have been a therapist for over 20 years and am very experienced with anxiety and trauma. I also integrate current findings in neuroscience into my practice (eg, polyvagal theory, interoception) and work with body-focused therapies and expressive writing as well.
I have experience/personal knowledge of High sensitivity (HSP/SPS), Dyspraxia and Selective Mutism.
