About this IFS professional: 

I support people in healing from interpersonal trauma. We are remarkable in our ability to cope with adversity. We often compartmentalise or dissociate what happens to us so we can carry on living. We turn to all manner of behaviours which may seem disordered and destructive yet make perfect sense; they protect us, help us stay in control, help numb the pain, help us survive, and help communicate our stories.

We are courageous and creative, and yet we can struggle to see these qualities in ourselves and our behaviours. I can help you to find greater freedom to be you. I will respect your protective behaviours and help you to recover—to heal and to grow—to not just survive, but to thrive.
