Move from chaos and confusion to a place of clarity and confidence.

Are you exhausted battling with symptoms of poor mental health, whilst trying to function in business, relationships and life?

 

I will give you a clear line of sight to enable you to actively engage in values that are important to you. Reflecting on life events of the past, the impact on the present and helping you shape the future.  

 

Change is possible, you just need to feel ready, show up and be willing to face those difficult thoughts and feelings.

 

Whether you are new to the idea of therapy or have found it hard to engage in the past but recognise you need support. Rest assured you are in the right place.

 

Here are the options to work with me. We can chat about which of the options will best suit your needs.

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Who is it for?

EMDR can help you rebuild your life after trauma.

 

EMDR is for you if you want a safe space to enable you to focus and identify difficult memories that are the basis of a current problem and presenting issues.

What is EMDR?

EMDR is an integrative therapy that is primarily effective in treating trauma. Eye movement is simply one component of EMDR treatment.

 

Together we will work through eight phases incorporating the past, present and future. The phases help promote different components of memory:

 

  1. Sensory input (images, sounds, smells, taste)

  2. Thoughts

  3. Emotions

  4. Body Sensations

  5. Beliefs

 

Accessing the different components of memory create an opportunity to reprocess dysfunctional thoughts and beliefs.

What's included?

EMDR is embedded within the Signature Therapy Programme once we've had the opportunity to work together and believe that EMDR will be a good fit for you.

If you are not sure which type of therapy is for you then don't worry this is something we can discuss during our discovery call. 

Simply book using the tab above and I can help you in making an informed decision.

About me

EMDR Practitioner 

My journey through the darkness

As a psychotherapist I very rarely talk about myself, I'm very much focussed on my clients needs and their story. However, if we're going to work together, it's important that we get to know each other. 

 

Here goes.......

I'm a qualified psychotherapist specialising in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).

I've been a psychotherapist for over 5 years working in private practice, NHS and IESO Digital Health. As a clinical psychotherapist with IESO I've been engaged in projects to improve mental health. The most recent was relating to mental health and diabetes. 

I'm a volunteer on the Board of Trustees for a Domestic Violence Charity in Cumbria advising on therapeutic interventions for victims and perpetrators who have experienced the impact of domestic abuse and the impact this can have in relation to trauma. I'm also a member of a Steering Group in Cumbria that supports organisational health.


But what led me to become a psychotherapist?

I'm a Yorkshire lass, and grew up in Leeds. My first job after leaving my studies was in a private health club as a personal trainer. 

After failing my hearing test for the armed forces I jumped at the role as a Prison Officer at HMP Leeds. Within 12 months I became a qualified Physical Training Instructor, spending an intense six months at Loughborough Athlete Centre gaining insight, knowledge and practical experience in all things pertaining to physical and mental fitness. 

 

Over the next ten years I worked across the UK in too many prisons to mention (with lots of interesting stories along the way!). The last prison I worked at was in Norfolk - a beautiful part of the country. I decided to transition into the education sector as I had started to fear that spending any more time 'behind bars', seeing what I saw, would not be optimal for a positive mindset.

It was too late - my own mental health had suffered.


I hope this reassures you that no one is immune to mental health issues. Between the transition of working in the prison service to the education sector, I was treated for symptoms of severe depression. I worked hard to overcome what felt impossible and didn’t receive the best support. Perhaps that’s why I am so invested in making sure the clients I treat get nothing but the best from me as their trusted therapist of choice? I left that dark place and I’m now a wife, mum and self employed therapist getting a lot out of giving back.  

I dug deep and got my life back on track.....


Little did I know that this career would lead me to become a member of the Executive Team with responsibility of teaching, learning and support services within Further Education. 

I developed skills and insight into strategic leadership, project management and executive coaching and whilst it was all very exciting I lost sight of what I loved. 

I had drifted to a more executive function and became far removed from what I had set out to achieve which was to make a positive difference to people's health and wellbeing.

Instead, I found myself entrenched in Ofsted processes and relentless board meetings, papers and scrutiny. In 2015 I was made redundant as the financial struggle took a toll on the resources within the sector. Whilst it didn't feel like it at the time (every cloud has a silver lining!), this was the best thing that happened to me. 

It was an opportunity to step off the hamster wheel and really question my 'why'.....I certainly have clarity on that now.    
           
Offering 'Empowering and Transformative Therapy' aligns to my values of empowerment, integrity, freedom, and success (with some excitement along the way!)

So why am I telling you all of this? 

My career may have been diverse but it has always connected me to the overarching value and importance of mental health. Helping to support individuals to live positively both physically and mentally.  

I am now living in the beautiful Lake District, married to my wife, Rebecca with our gorgeous 6 year old son, our IVF success. 

I love to keep fit and healthy and my main love is for long distance triathlons. I am spoiled for training choices in the Lake District. I am proud to say I have completed Ironman in Sweden and it took all my mental and physical resolve to finish in a time of 11 hours 56 minutes. 

In the words of my heroine Chrissie Wellington, ‘Anything is Possible’. 

I've created a free guide to help you to transform your mental health in 5 steps.
