Good therapy has a focus. I offer a safe and effective and therapeutic relationship and whatever you bring to our sessions interests me and this is workable. Unwinding from trauma and anxiety will bring you freedom, self-acceptance and the deep transformation that good therapy can offer.

Early sessions focus on developing a shared understanding and goals so that we both know what we are there to do. I draw from a range of models. We'll both agree on methods and approaches (often through trial) and come to an agreement as to what progress would look and feel like for you, so we know what is working.

About Somatic Experiencing therapy: (SE) is a theory and methodology for healing both shock trauma and developmental trauma, based on the neurophysiology of the autonomic nervous system. In SE terms, trauma is characterized by the body's response to an overwhelming event (or accumulation of events). The arousal energy in the body from these original responses to threat has not been completely processed and remains lodged in the nervous system, often manifesting in a range of mental and physical health problems. In SE we help a person to consciously practice the "felt sense" of positive physical sensations and then use this as an anchor to gradually and gently facilitate lasting biological /psychological healing.
