My personal journey goes hand in hand with my professional one. As I open myself fully to connection, the therapy relationship offers great potential for deep and lasting healing for those I serve.
I used to deal with the pain of my trauma through starvation, self-injury, alcohol and workaholism as well as dissociation. I now live comfortably and often joyfully in my body. I have discovered safety, nourishment and authentic expression in relationships. I have a lot of professional experience, yet it is also who I am as a whole human that I offer when I work with people.
I work as a body-oriented Trauma Therapist privately and with the Clinic for Dissociative Studies. I lead Trauma Informed Yoga for a high dependency psychiatric unit and run professional trauma trainings for yoga teachers and psychologists. I was previously a NEAD/PNES Yoga Therapist in an NHS hospital within the Neuropsychology Department.
