I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, with twenty five years experience working with survivors of trauma and all forms of adverse childhood experiences. I work in private practice with clients presenting with complex, attachment-based trauma and dissociating parts. Since 2007, I have also been the Therapeutic Director of Hurting to Healing (formerly Dorset Action on Abuse), where I also train and supervise a team of counsellors and supervisors who work with adult survivors.
In my practice I integrate complementary therapeutic approaches that prioritise harnessing clients’ resources as essential to overcoming the consequences of time-frozen trauma.
