Key Workers CounsellingMates in Mind

I am a trauma informed psychotherapist who has been in accredited practice for seven years. I am qualified in a range of modalities including person centred, ACT, transactional analysis, CBT, DBT , EMDR and psychodynamic (my special interest) and am passionate about keeping talking therapies accessible and client led; particularly for neurodivergent clients. I have an extensive background in trauma focused work and have developed specialisms in long term complex trauma, eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder (I am currently researching the pathways of body dysmorphic disorder as a trauma response). I endeavour to keep the client central to the therapeutic practice and ensure that they are always heard and validated.
