About Me

I offer 1:1 focused therapy sessions, talks and workshops. I am trained in many therapy modalities which integrate together to make sure you get the help and support you need. My training is extensive and I have trained with the world’s best. I am TRAUMA TRAINED and TRAUMA INFORMED. This is very important and it is something you should ask before working with a professional. If you are worried about being retraumatised, I fully understand. My number one rule is SAFETY and I establish this early on and I work at your pace. I support adults and children and all my therapies are solution focussed. When you work with me, we work as a team and I will teach you skills for life. I support my clients to be able to live their lives to their full potential! My therapies cover the physical, mental and emotional aspects of your life. You do not need to know what therapy you need as I will know what will work best for you.

Why Me?

I help children and adults using a number of therapies. My main expertise is supporting children and the families of children who have emotional challenges.  Many of the children I help have a diagnosis of ASD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, ADD and/or Selective Mutism.  Many of the children or young people are living their lives in a state of high Anxiety and Stress.  I integrate a number of therapies to ensure the right support for each of my clients.

I have had many challenges through my own life and found these therapies to help me and my family.  As a mother of a child with specific learning difficulties (SpLD), I started a journey many years ago to help my son learn in the classroom and to be able to cope with the anxieties that go hand in hand with a SpLD in many aspects of day to day life.  We aren’t born with all the answers and it’s difficult as a parent to see any of our children suffer. In order to help our children, we also need to ‘look at our own stuff!’ and this is where I can really support you and your children.  It is often the case that:

“We only know what our Primary Caregivers taught us.”

There is no shame in not having all the answers and asking for help!

This was one of my biggest challenges…Asking for help. So, I know how difficult it can be and also know how wonderful it is when you get the answers you have been searching for.

I am passionate to help children as young as possible, so that they have the resources to support themselves for life.  This is why I use the therapies I do.  Young children don’t always have the words to describe how they are feeling so I use EFT (Tapping) which is fun, easy to learn and helps them without having the ‘language’.

It’s very important to also know that most of

Our Beliefs were formed before age 6″.

Some of these beliefs can be so strong and they may not be serving us well and furthermore they might not even be our own beliefs!

We can all recount an adult from our childhood whether it was parent, club leader or teacher who had a significant impact on us and maybe not always in a good way. Maybe we are carrying their beliefs through our day to day lives?

“Heal your Birth, Heal your Life”

Many of us do not realise how important our birth process is to the development of our beliefs and perceptions of the world.

Using Matrix Birth Reimprinting gives me a special set of techniques to help people with their birth, the birth of their children, infertility, miscarriage and still birth etc by removing any emotions that may be connected to a trauma. I can also help Mums to be imprint a future birth.

“The Mind Body Connection”

The more I learn about how our minds and bodies work and how we are influenced by external factors the more I understand what is often keeping people in a cycle of illness and negativity.  If you are someone who is ‘Sick and Tired’ of being ‘Sick and Tired’ then these therapies are for you!

As well as working with clients on a 1:1 basis, I also work with groups.  I have developed my own set of workshops called ‘The Mental Diet’. These are largely based on the principals of Mindfulness, specifically Mindfulness based Stress reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and positive psychology. I teach people how to change their lives and be more positive and more relaxed.

I am a Master Practitioner in EFT and Practitioner in Matrix Reimprinting and Matrix Birth Reimprinting. I also use Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), techniques from Connected Kids (Calm Kids), Reiki, Creative Play Therapy, Trauma & Addiction, Weight Management and Obesity and Auricular Acupuncture, Neurosensorimotor reflex pattern integration and rhythmic movements. I am currently training as a Body worker using Biodynamic Craniosacral Treatment.

The list of the number of issues that these therapies can help is extensive.  If you would like to speak to me in the strictest confidence, then please call me on 07789767700 or email [email protected]
