Currently working online. 

 

I specialise in working with complex mental health symptoms through a three-tier treatment model, aiming to shift and relieve these symptoms on a neurobiological level. In sessions I focus on the need to establish safety and stability in a client’s nervous system supported through developing skills in psychoeducation, mindfulness and increasing your capacity to become more embodied. You will be central to forming the rhythm and pace of your recovery in collaboration with my expertise.

In my practice I work with an integrative theoretical model woven alongside the use of the expressive arts. I facilitate connection with an individual’s visual, bodily, and relational experience, leading to a bespoke understanding of their therapeutic process. This creative therapeutic alliance is achieved using Sandtray, music, movement, sculpture, painting and drawing, poetry, creative writing, drama, play, and connection with nature. Use of the arts is optional.

In the past I have worked with complex behavioural needs and disabilities within adolescents and adults. And as a group facilitator in a Therapeutic Community for EUPD, on secure wards for elderly patients, supporting them to access connection with arts and self-expression. I have worked as a Trauma Therapist at Khiron Clinics since November 2018, and currently maintain a role as Primary Trauma Therapist. With access to supervision from international leads in the trauma field, such as Deb Dana, Colleen De-Rango, Ditte Marcher and Janina Fisher.

I wish to welcome your questions and curiosity about beginning a therapeutic relationship.
