I am a registered counsellor and holistic therapist, with a specialism in Adult ADHD, I work with depression and anxiety, loss, trauma, self-id discovery, addiction, etc.
I have a personal experience and further training with working with ADHD, helping clients to understand who they are within the context of neurodiversity, working with their own presenting traits rather than against them, working to identify maladapted behaviours and beliefs that are unhelpful and/or untrue.
I also have further training in using ‘Inner-Child’ therapy to meet the needs that were not met as a child, allowing exploration of beliefs and coping strategies which maybe holding back growth and recognition of unprocessed emotions causing inner turmoil. We often look back from an adult perspective, with a fully grown rational brain and developed emotional intelligence, which can diminish the actual emotional experience of our child selves. Inner child work helps to validate that child experience at the time and give them a voice and opportunity to give that part of us compassion and understanding. We can gain a lot of insight into what may still be influencing us in adult hood.
Experienced with childhood abuse, domestic abuse, addiction, complex bereavement and loss, self-harm and coping with loved ones who are suffering with mental health issues.
