I have been trained to an Advanced Certificate Level in Non Violent Resistance, which is a specific family therapy approach
I am an accredited practioner of Reattach model...a multi sensory model that involves "finger tapping" to enable the treatment of a variety of issues such ad addiction, depression, anxiety and i have found particularly helpful around feelings of shame and guilt
It is a gentle non intrusive method and can be used in conjunction with more traditional talking therapy.
I have a 12-year background in adolescent care and childhood trauma, as well as addiction and substance misuse; I have a knowledge of the 12-step programme within addiction and co-dependency.
I am a psychotherapist in advanced training in Transactional Analysis (TA) and competent to offer counselling. The heart of TA is relationship - both internally, with oneself - and externally, relating healthily with others.
TA is particularly rich in tools and models that support a client to own and develop their own knowledge and understanding of themselves, so they may thrive autonomously.
One of the fundamental philosophies of TA is: everyone has the capacity to think for themselves and influence their life by the decisions they make. Any decision can be changed.
