I have practised in many settings and have many years of experience working with survivors of sexual, emotional and physical abuse. I have worked with people in both short and long term contracts within the NHS IAPT Service, HMS Prison Service and as a Counsellor and Service Coordinator with Kinergy, a Bristol/South Gloucestershire based Counselling Service.
My experience of counselling Trauma, Dissociation and Post traumatic Stress have given me a deep understanding of the far reaching impacts and affects people experience, across and throughout their lives, in normal response and survival of traumatic events. I have learned much through my clients and CPD training and am skilled in supporting, understanding and holding clients. Working safely when we become overwhelmed or triggered and finding meaningful ways to understand, make sense and to move forwards.
Within this I am always interested to explore how we resource and support ourselves, the simple things that ground us and the anchoring things that bring us worth, fulfillment, rest and even joy.
