I am an Integrative Trauma Therapist. My approach to treatment involves selecting the most appropriate therapeutic techniques or modalities, which are best suited to the client’s particular issues. As each therapy has a boundary of effectiveness. By tailoring the therapy to the individual it is in my opinion more effective and often produces a deeper change than just a single traditional therapy.  

If you’re struggling with a problem, you’ve probably spent literally years living with it and to fix it can seem like mission impossible. Don’t worry as its never too late, so many problems can be resolved once you are committed to change.  

I offer a professional, confidential, caring and supportive private mental health service for Adults and young people over 16 years old.  My private clinic is based near Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire provides a large comfortable, safe and non-judgemental environment. I aim to empower my clients by building on their own strengths and internal resources to grow more resilience for life’s challenges. Additionally, I also provide self help sheets with useful tips, tools and techniques, creating a virtual toolbox that can improve emotional wellbeing for everyday life.

In 2014, I became fascinated by the neuroscience and neurobiology of trauma, how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) like abuse or neglect changes the landscape of the brain.  Which increases the risks for mental and or physical illness, disease later in life.  It can also be through what you didn’t receive, an absence of a parent during your childhood at key moments or prolonged exposure which can create attachment disorders. Relational trauma creates emotional wounds that still cause challenges in our day-to-day interactions and intimate relationships.  Some common examples are: a lack of validation, not being seen or heard, our needs not being met, not being helped to feel safe and secure, our boundaries not being respected, overly critical parenting, not being allowed a voice, not being given a choice and parents/caregivers not showing up to activities or events.

The identity becomes structured in complex layers of self reinforcing thought patterns, based on the deep underlying emotional pain and torment. These structures give us our sense of self and become the inner critic, that voice that constantly tells us we are unworthy, unloveable and there is something wrong with us is a common experience.   Then develops over time into adulthood, which create issues with low self esteem, self worth and confidence issues.

Contrary to popular belief, trauma is much more common and comes in many shapes, forms and sizes. Dr Ronald Ruden’s ground breaking work (author of ‘When the Past is Always Present’ 2010) provides a scientific understanding of trauma which is a different memory process and the memory is stuck in place with a sticky substance and cannot be updated unlike our normal memory function. So we cannot ‘just get a grip and get over it’ but with new healing modalities, we can delink to remove the distress using Havening Techniques, or create a preferred response using BWRT

There are different types of trauma acute, chronic and complex. Trauma isn’t what happens to you, but how you respond to the situation, which can be both experienced or witnessed or even from a story told by a caregiver or from films, books etc. Acute trauma stems from a single dangerous or stressful experience. Chronic trauma develops through exposure to multiple stressful events or situations. Complex trauma describes both children’s or adult’s exposure to multiple traumatic events as well as any long-term effects of this exposure.

Long after the distressing event has passed, the nervous system can still remember a traumatic memory, which is like an open wound that hasn’t been allowed to heal. That can leave people in a more vulnerable state for years, feeling hypervigilant, anxious, stressed, depressed, dissociative or numb.  With increased emotional distress for example acute feeling of shame, guilt, angry, rage, regret, overwhelmed, panic, fearful etc.

With new advances in neuroscience and psychosensory treatments, we now have the ability to release the distress of traumatic memories. Unlike older traditional techniques like counselling, CBT and Mindfulness which often struggles to release the roots of the deep-seated emotional distress and the somatic body’s responses including the autonomic nervous system.  

Being trauma informed I believe is essential to effectively work with the mind and the body’s connection. The Polyvagal theory which defines the way that the Vagal Nerve reacts to the experiences and its role in safety as the Autonomic Nervous System regulates the responses.

“Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and under treated cause of human suffering.”  Peter Levine

What Is a Trauma-Informed Therapist?

A trauma-informed therapist’s approach understands the adverse impacts of trauma, life experiences and distressing memories. I have a number of effective trauma treatments for recovery. We can more easily recognise the signs and symptoms and use a compassionate approach, which minimises re-traumatisation. It also helps prioritise treatment, as trauma can keep you stuck or trapped in the past no matter how old it is.

The priority for trauma recovery is to re-establish feelings of safety first and to grow more stability throughout the following sessions. If you have found traditional mental health services have not helped you, it may indicate that your issues have a basis in trauma or Adverse Childhood Experiences.

“Trauma is a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and now you’re acting out of pain. It induces fear and now you’re acting out of fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you.”  Dr Gabor Maté 

Introducing two modern neuroscience based therapies, they both work with how the brain actually functions working on the psychological processes.

Havening Techniques® and BWRT® have both revolutionised my practice. As we all have Neuroplasticity which is the brain’s own ability to learn, change and adapt. Through Neuroplasticity, the brain is consistently rewiring itself and modifying its connections. It can reorganize itself both in structure and how it functions. Without neuroplasticity, we wouldn’t be able to do many of the things that make us human. This includes learning, developing, and forming memories.

Trauma Informed Integrative Therapist and Clinical Supervisor with Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Havening Techniques, BrainWorking Recursive Therapy, Trauma Specialist in Princes Risborough area, South Buckinghamshire and South Oxfordshire.

In my experience these newer therapies achieves a rapid and more permanent result for the client and sometimes even within one session, helping the client to achieve a better and happier life.  Being relatively new therapies, means we do not have lots of the clinical evidence yet, however from the data we have already collected, both of these wonderful techniques will be here for a very long time to come.

Over the last decade or so, there has been an amazing growth of clinical research studies and the results have increased and underpinned our understanding of Neuroscience and neurobiology, particularly of trauma and the mind-body connection (Flight, Fight, Freeze survival mechanisms). These newer therapies do not rely on growing just your cognitive understanding to change emotional responses or behaviours, or even in some cases changes your belief.

I work flexibly, so it is entirely up to you how long we work together and the frequency between sessions, as there are no fixed number its based on when you feel better. Usually you can expect a minimum of three, however it can longer if it is more complex.

“Our brains continually form maps of the world, maps of what is safe and what is dangerous.” Dr. Bessel van der Kolk
