CPTSD, PTSD or anxiety often shows up in the form of unhealthy relational patterns with yourself and others. Self loathing, withdrawing, numbing your feelings with emotional eating or behavioural addictions like codependency may impact how you show up in all areas of your life

Working with me using nervous system regulation and somatic techniques like EMDR will help you to regain a sense of safety and connection in your nervous system , regulate overwhelming emotions, rewire dysfunctional behavioural patterns and reclaim your authentic self

Heres how I help you


There is a much evidence to suggest that trauma gets stored in the body . Any issue involving emotional pain needs to be dealt with at the level of the emotional ( mammalian ) brain, which is where all of our memories are stored and our emotions are processed . Working with methodologies like EMDR , polyvagal techniques to regulate the nervous system , inner child healing , trauma informed coaching and somatic work is my  preferred approach.

In the words of ex soldier and PTSD expert, Martin Webster “Trying to fix an emotional issue at the level of the rational mind  is like opening the boot of your car when the engine breaks down. You are looking in the wrong place. It simply doesn’t work “.

I am equipped to guide you through the process of validating, processing and integrating your traumatic events and guiding you towards building greater emotional resilience

Life doesn’t always gift people with the best start. A traumatic childhood may result in people developing unhealthy coping mechanisms and destructive patterns of behaviour which, if left unresolved, may impact their lives for years to come.
