I am a Therapist/counsellor (in training) specialising in Integrated Transactional Analysis. I work one day a week seeing clients with the charity MIND and see private clients the rest of the time. I work on a long term and short term basis with adult and adolescent individuals. I am trained to work with depression, anxiety bereavement, addictions, abuse and anything the client brings to the sessions.
There are times when everyday life feels overwhelming and it is easy to blame yourself, thinking that you 'should' be stronger or better somehow. This can make it difficult to acknowledge that you need help, and to allow yourself to reach out and accept it.
Being on this page means that you've taken some important first steps and I'd like to encourage you to keep going. You don't have to struggle alone.
I offer a package of care which includes a comprehensive mental health assessment for children adolescents and adults. Patients complete the Adverse Childhood Experiences scale and the bespoke shut-D dissociation and Impact of multiple events scales. This allows me to make a detailed chronology of stresses and trauma affecting the client in this lifetime and collating significant traumas from close relatives in previous generations.
