About Me

I provide therapies that I have personally encountered in my own healing journey. I combine this knowledge from direct lived experience with an extensive career in research and years of working in a variety of clinical settings, to provide a deep and comprehensive understanding of violence, abuse, trauma, and healing. I use a non-pathologising, anti-oppressive, and affirming approach that is trauma-centred. I analyse trauma responses as functional behaviours developed for survival, and work with clients to adapt or reduce responses that have become difficult or harmful over time.
