About this IFS professional: 

My main expertise is in trauma-focused psychotherapy. When I was a Consultant Obstetrician, I saw that adverse events in pregnancy and childbirth could have serious psychological consequences. Following accreditation as a Psychotherapist, I learned from experience that EMDR is a very effective treatment for PTSD following childbirth. Over the past 14 years, I have extended my practice to include a wide variety of male and female clients who have PTSD or Complex PTSD. For those clients who have had the childhood traumas of neglect and abuse, therapy needs to take account of how their personality adapted in order to enable them to survive. IFS meets this need, and integrates well with EMDR.
