A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I am an accredited Core Process Psychotherapist, my main areas of expertise are trauma, addiction, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, inner-child and early birth work.

I am EMDR trained, helping people work through past or present trauma.

My professional experience includes outpatient and inpatient addiction treatment, crime reduction and complex needs. As well as my private practice for psychotherapy and EMDR, I am a senior therapist at Charter Harley Street.

I am an accredited member of UKCP and EMDR UK.

I was born and raised in Swindon in Wiltshire by Irish parents who both had significant trauma in their lives, my father although undiagnosed, had PTSD and my mother suffered as a consequence of tuberculosis.

I developed a passion for horses and at 16 went to the Talland School of Equitation where I stayed for three years. I learned a lot about how to communicate with horses and I attribute the start of my own healing to my experience with them. I went on to help various people achieve their goals in the equestrian world as a trainer and a rider.

To this day, horses are a hugely important part of my life.

Several years later, I began working with people with learning disabilities. I soon learnt that I not only had an ability to relate to horses, but I also could understand with great empathy the causes of human suffering.

I went on to work in a residential unit for adolescents and became the Deputy Manager. This was fundamental and a pivotal point in my learning about how we suffer as a consequence of our experience and how we heal.
