MSc. BA (Hons) Counsellor & EMDR Therapist

I am a qualified counsellor, therapist, EMDR therapist and registered mental health nurse with over 30 years’ experience of working in mental health with a wide range of issues. Since 2015 I have been working in the prison system and it is here that I began to work therapeutically with people who had experienced trauma many of whom have been told they have a personality disorder.

I developed a keen interest in trauma and traumatology and went on to undertake specialist training in this field. I work in both the criminal justice system and private practice as a trauma and EMDR therapist.

I have a specific interest in working with:
