Coming from a clinical background as family midwife for many years, my approach to counselling and psychotherapy encompasses thought, emotion and body in equal measures.

Being trained in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy my approach to psychotherapy and counselling is pluralistic and integrative, drawing from integrative humanistic and existential foundations. I am trauma trained with a strong focus on the body, the felt sense. These foundations allow me to help you find your own solutions to work through and leave behind what hinders you at present to live a fulfilled life.

Apart from traditional talking-based approaches, which invite the exploration of our rational  and emotional side, I am focussing on the somatic experience and the wisdom of the body.  Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Deep Brain Reorienting is focused on addressing trauma, both longstanding and recent, and is used to address PTSD, ComplexPTSD, dissociative reactions and trauma-related difficulties. Both are collaborative approaches, which allow you to explore and heal at your own pace and rhythm while allowing me to tailor my approach to your needs and to consolidate traumatic memory.

Equally, through my interest in Asperger’s, ADD and my studies of the Autism Spectrum at UCC, I became more aware of how much our experience of the world and our emotional reactions are based on both our neurologic setup and the experiences that shaped us.

The strong underlying foundation of my work is Neurobiology and I have found again and again that by becoming knowledgeable and mindful of who we are, we can become masters of our own life, whatever the circumstances. Becoming friends with who we are will lead the way to heal trauma and relational imprints.
