Trauma can have a profound and overwhelming impact in all areas of life, affecting mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as relationships, family and work.​


If you're experiencing trauma/PTSD symptoms (such as nightmares and flashbacks) or finding that past exepriences are negatively impacting your current life, then therapy can help.​


Whether you've been through childhood trauma, had a serious accident, been in an abusive relationship, or experienced any other kind of trauma, I can help you overcome your difficulties. I offer a variety of therapeutic approaches, including the highly effective Rewind technique, to help you process your experiences, reduce related anxiety, and find a positive and healthy way forward.


Trauma refers any event or events that are frightening, distressing or life-threatening, and overwhelm the body and brain's ability to cope. Trauma can happen at any age, and its impact often continues for years after the triggering event(s).


​As a highly-trained trauma therapist, I will support you to feel better and rebuild your life. Therapy will always follow the pace you’re comfortable with, ensuring you feel comfortable and safe at all times.
