The Trauma Practice Building


I offer therapy at the CCPE building in Little Venice, Paddington, London. This is the building you see in the photo above. I also work at my home based practice in Cuffley, Hertfordshire. I also offer on line therapy for clients who are unable to get to me due to a mental health difficulty or mobility issues.

I set up The Trauma Practice in 2018 with a vision and commitment to help people with trauma and trauma associated difficulties. Finding the right help from a trauma informed therapist can be difficult I aim to help everyone I see in therapy and if I cant help you I hope strive to point you in the right direction to someone who can.

I work in a holitic way, taking into account the ecology of a person's life as well as their mind, body and soul. I work in an integrative way maintaining flexibility and taking the best from a broad range of approaches. I am personable, friendly and down to earth. I provide a safe, confidential, collaborative environment for you to work through your difficulty. I look forward to hearing from you.
