Areas Of Specialism

Although I am experienced in working across a wide range of issues, I have two areas of specialism:

Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity

Working with people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or in any way that expresses something about their sexuality, gender (including non-binary) and relationships. I have undertaken training with Pink Therapy www.pinktherapy.com and Gendered Intelligence www.genderedintelligence.co.uk
Sex worker friendly.

Trauma

Working with the impact of trauma using Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® which is a mindfulness-based body-focussed approach (this does not include touch). Trauma can be defined as an event, or series of events, in which we felt threatened, overwhelmed and powerless, resulting in a whole array of distressing symptoms such as flashbacks, poor sleep, anxiety or depression, chronic aches and pains, and withdrawal from friends and family. Our bodies hold both the memory of our experiences and the wisdom for healing and transformation.

“To be wise we have to know just how our psyches were formed, how they were wounded, how they were blessed. And how to heal what hampers our full being.” Gabrielle Roth 1989
