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 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 recently completed a training as transpersonal Couples Therapist at the CCPE.
I retired in 2015 from my post 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 we both separately see clients in our (delightfully cosy, heated) Cotswolds Shepherds Hut in the garden.
My standard Norfolk fee for a 55-minute hour is £60.
