1. Trauma Discharge Massage
If you feel that you are carrying significant amounts of ambient trauma in your nervous system, then having a concentrated forty to fifty minutes of specific trauma discharge massage can make a real difference.
It is easy to end up blaming yourself for struggling with daily life when the simple truth is your nervous system is suffering from ambient trauma overload.
This psychological approach to touch silently and effortlessly removes the "invisible" ambient trauma that we are all carrying. Such silent trauma discharge may be all that we need in order to "get on" with life and sort out our own problems. It often produces feelings of wellbeing, greater resilience and increased mental positivity, amongst many other beneficial outcomes.

2. PsychoTactile Therapy
If you are experiencing repeated bouts of active trauma, then seeing a therapist who can work safely and gently with both words and touch is the most effective strategy.
My integration of touch and words is unique and may save you months and even years of “talking” therapy.
We target the specific part of your nervous system where the trauma has accumulated and facilitate its safe discharge.

3. Group Therapy
In my experience, group therapy has been one of the most effective ways to help people deal with their problems. For the human nervous system, being in a group is intrinsically healing. All of the techniques of my psycho-tactile approach (words and touch) can be utilised in the group setting.
By being in a group, we can realise that the things that worry us the most, also concern others. We discover that we are not alone in our concerns. Witnessing other people work through their personal issues in a safe and supportive environment is profoundly therapeutic for everyone in the group.
I offer groups that meet either monthly or weekly to fit in with your work and life schedule. Such groups are a way to make personal therapy affordable for many people.
Places and locations vary according to demand.
Unsure about what treatment is best for you?
Working with trauma means you need to feel safe.
Therefore, I offer a free 25 minute zoom session to discuss your options.
This initial consultation gives you a chance to decide whether or not you feel comfortable working with me and gives me a chance to assess which treatment pathway is best for you.
