Reflecting EMDR Focus’ integrative and client-centred approach to psychotherapy, I bring to my work a thorough and comprehensive training in several mainstream therapy approaches, including trauma therapy, allowing me to offer psychotherapy closely tailored to your needs and wishes as client.
My core training, at the CCPE in London from 1998 to the mid-noughties, is in person-centred and transpersonal psychotherapy, and besides my Masters degree (De Montfort University, 2007) I also hold post-graduate certificates from the CCPE in Advanced Psychotherapy and Dreamwork.
Registered as psychotherapist with the UKCP, I am an EMDR Europe accredited Practitioner, working towards Consultant status, and dealing especially with trauma and with the attachment-focused approach of Dr Laurel Parnell, with whom I have trained both in the US and the UK.
In 2011 I qualified as High Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with Anglia Ruskin University and the Oxford Centre for Cognitive Therapy. I am also a certified couples therapist, with a diploma in Transpersonal Couples work from the CCPE in London.
Until 2015 I worked as Psychological Therapist with NHS Wellbeing in North Norfolk, where I specialised in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as well as EMDR. I am also an instructor in Heart-Rhythm Meditation.
Having grown up in Germany, I spent my earlier adult years working and travelling the world, with postings in Moscow, Warsaw, East and West Berlin, Vienna and Beijing.
With three children born during our years in Germany, Central Europe and China, my husband Mark and I now live in his childhood home of Sheringham, where I see in-person clients (far more rarely of course than before the present Covid times) in our delightfully cosy, heated, Cotswolds Shepherds Hut in the garden.
My standard Norfolk fee for the 55-minute therapeutic hour face-to-face is £70, and unless otherwise agreed £100 for therapy or supervision online.
