I am a psychotherapist registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), a member of British Psychodrama Association (BPA) and I trained in Psychodrama Psychotherapy at the London Centre for Psychodrama.
I offer long and short-term psychotherapy to individuals and groups. I also facilitate experiential psychodrama psychotherapy workshops.
I have experience in a range of areas, including complex trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, feeling stuck and directionless, and working with young people.
I value creativity and authenticity as the nourishment that enriches people's experience of life. My aim as a psychotherapist is to be alongside my clients as they explore themselves and how they relate to the world and others, with the intention of finding new, freeing ways to be in those relationships.
I support my clients in their journey, in an empathetic and non-judgemental way, helping them to realise their full potential. I aim to provide a holding and containing environment where a profound exploration can take place.
Clients are welcome to come for a first assessment to discuss what concerns bring them to therapy and how we might work together, at no obligation to continue the work together.
I originally trained in Psychodrama, and now I support my creative way of working with principles from different approaches, including:
- Psychodynamic theory,
- Neurobiology and Trauma,
- IFS (Internal Family System)
- Polyvagal theory
I have a Level 1 and 2 Certificate in Complex Trauma. I am an EMDR therapist (in training).
I always negotiate with my clients whether they wish to work creatively, as it is not for all people. And there is always the option not to work in this way.
In the last year, I have worked as a Women Specialist Worker for BHT (Brighton Housing Trust), where I set up a service offering trauma stabilisation interventions for women in Brighton who are vulnerable, at risk of homelessness and have mental health and addiction difficulties. To support my work, I have focussed all my additional learning on trauma and how people and communities are affected by it.
