Working with clients who have been abused, physically, emotionally and sexually. Those who have suffered childhood trauma. Those who are experiencing life crises. Those who have been bereaved or who have suffered other losses.

I have a professional interest in attachment and the reparative capacity of the therapeutic relationship with individuals who have experienced poor infant attachment. I studied this area whilst undertaking my MA in Integrative Psychotherapy in the form of a research dissertation. My Doctorate also addressed these areas. I continue to teach and study this area of interest both in the professional field and in my clinical practice.
