About this IFS professional: 

I have over 20 years’ experience as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I have worked in the NHS in secondary, primary and crisis care and I have been in private practice for the last 15 years. I have studied Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and I have my own mindfulness practice. I have also studied somatic practices.

My area of special interest is trauma and developmental trauma in particular. I find IFS to be a very effective framework to help people bring safety to their systems and to gradually move away from protective, but often limiting ways of being in the world.
