My Specialisms

Trauma

The results of having experienced either a one off traumatic event, an accumulation of smaller traumatic events, or vicarious trauma (witnessing the trauma of others) can leave us with multiple, short term debilitating effects. These effects are useful and protective brain and body functions, however sometimes these protective mechanisms can become ‘stuck’ causing us longer term difficulties. Sometimes this results in troubling post trauma symptoms and other times PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

I offer Trauma Focussed Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF CBT), as recommended by Nice (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) to process trauma, bringing clients back to a place of calm.
