do you have any specialist areas

of work?

I work generally with adults facing common human difficulties. We all go through rocky periods in our lives and therapy can help you smooth a way forward. Some examples of how therapy can help you move through difficulties include:

  • Understanding what might be causing problems and repetitive patterns.

  • Clarifying what direction you want to take in your life.

  • Exploring problems with intimate relationships or family members.

  • Exploring difficulties in relating to and accempting yourself

  • Managing emotions and thoughts more effectively


In particular, I have worked extensively with bereavement, domestic violence, trauma and adult survivors of childhood adversity. My doctoral thesis was on emotions in adult survivors of childhood abuse and I have worked in a hospice service for bereaved families and an agency for women in violent relationships. I am trained in EMDR (eye-movement desensitisation and reprocessing) a government-recommended treatment for trauma. I have also had specific training in working with couples.


In addition, over the duration of my career I have helped clients work through issues including (although not exhaustive):

  • Abortion

  • Abuse

  • Anger management

  • Anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic, Phobias)

  • Bereavement (including complex, traumatic and delayed grief)

  • Bullying

  • Cancer

  • Carer support

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME

  • Chronic pain

  • Couples issues

  • Depression (including postnatal depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and suicidal thoughts)

  • Disabilities

  • Domestic violence

  • Eating disorders (including binge eating and bulimia)

  • Infertility

  • Low self-confidence and esteem

  • Miscarriage

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Parenting

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Pregnancy and birth

  • Relationship issues (including couples in cross cultural relationships, family issues including in-laws, domestic violence, pre-nuptial counselling, separation and divorce, affairs and betrayals)

  • Self-harm
