About Me:
Recently awarded Trauma Therapy Service of the Year 2022 - Hampshire, by Global Health & Pharma. I am a UKATA registered Contractual Trainee Psychotherapist and BACP registered Counsellor/Therapist and Supervisor working in Winchester, and online.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues with clients, although I am particularly passionate about working with clients who:
- have experienced early attachment disruption
- experienced, or are experiencing, trauma or abuse, including
transgenerational / childhood / adulthood abuse

- experience dissociation / have a dissociative disorder
- experience self harm or suicidal feeling, thoughts, or impulses

I am a member of the following professional/membership bodies:
- British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
- UK Association for Transactional Analysis
- European Association for Transactional Analysis
- International Transactional Analysis Association
- European Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation
- International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation

My initial training (BA degree) was in Integrative Counselling, offering a variety of ways of working with clients. I have subsequently trained in Internal Family Systems Therapy and ongoing Psychotherapy training in Transactional Analysis. Alongside training in therapeutic approaches, I have extensive training specialising in working with trauma.

In addition to working as a counsellor/therapist, I also work as a clinical supervisor, both in my private practice, and for a local counselling organisation. I previously have had experience conducting annual reviews of the efficacy of Therapeutic Communities around the UK, and conducting a Serious Incident Investigation for a counselling organisation, making recommendations for reducing risk and improving safeguarding policies and procedures.
