About Me

I am a trauma therapist who specializes in women's mental health at various life stages including the perinatal and peri-menopausal periods. Combining ego state (DNMS) and EMDR techniques allows me to help many women with many different issues including intrusive thoughts, phobias, depression, dissociation and all varieties of anxiety. I am currently a consultant in training working regularly with a certified consultant. I aspire to be the very best therapist that I can be.
