About Me

I am especially experienced in working with clients with anxiety, trauma and self esteem issues, as well as chronic pain and illness.


Anxiety, trauma and self-esteem:

Being stuck in a cycle of anxiousness and/or having low self-esteem can be overwhelming and can stop you from living life as you would like. There are often unresolved issues from our past which have been internalised and act as triggers in our day-to-day life.  They cause anxiety, low self worth, anger as well as depression. I can support you to make sense of this, recognise patterns, find new meaning and new ways of coping. You may also be having physical symptoms such as headaches or IBS. Your body may actually be carrying the weight of your anxiety and past trauma.I welcome the opportunity to work through this with you and support you to live your best life. I can support you to identify patterns, develop strategies and offer further insight and perspective to resolve personal issues and find new ways forward.


Chronic pain and chronic illness:

I also support clients with chronic pain and chronic illness, such as CFS/ME, fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions. The focus on chronic conditions is mainly concerned with managing, often debilitating, physical symptoms. However, the psychological and emotional impact of these conditions and symptoms are equally relevant and important. In my research and my work with clients I frequently encounter people who do not feel believed or heard and sometimes have been told ‘there’s nothing wrong with you’ ‘it’s all in your head’ ‘or ‘you need to try harder’. This in turn can add to your physical and psychological pain. I believe you and I will work with you with empathy and without judgment. I will support you holistically to live an enriched life within the limitations of your illness.


Sometimes there are unresolved life experiences and fears which are ‘trapped’ in your body, which activate your brain’s pain response, like when you touch a hot stove - it is your brain’s way of alerting you that something isn’t right. We can work through these unresolved issues, which when released, can lessen, and sometimes alleviate, emotional as well as physical pain - with the benefit of neuroscience and  cutting edge research, we now understand physical and emotional pain are interlinked. This means that even where there is an undeniable structural issue causing your pain, there is a possibility of turning down your pain volume. 


Whatever your reason for seeking support, I will tailor your therapy to your particular circumstances and your needs and aspirations as a unique individual.
