About Me

I am an Irish woman based in London, England working in private practice. I am a qualified Family Therapist, International & Europe Accredited EMDR Consultant (Adult, Child and Adolescent) and Integrative psychotherapist, Supervisor and EMDR Training Facilitator. I work with people of all ages, including families and couples. I specialise in attachment informed trauma work and welcome folk from all cultures, identities and backgrounds. I offer a thoughtful, playful, non-judgemental, culturally sensitive and neurodivergent affirmative practice to allow for a reflective and healing space for individuals, couples, children and families. My collaborative, all inclusive stance is also reflected in my supervision practice. I have been practising as a psychotherapist for over 20 years. I spent 10 years within the NHS and Social care as a therapist supporting families, Looked After Children, Care leavers and providing training and support to Foster parents, new parents and Adoption Support. For the past ten years I have been in private practice offering specialist trauma informed therapy and supervision. I provide group supervision to the NHS, CAMHS, School Trusts, Social Care and therapists in private practice online and in-person. I offer online therapy and in- person Intensive EMDR and Intensive trauma informed Couple and family therapy in my central London based practice.
