I am a specialist in working with people whose reality has been denied. This can be a result of:
narcissistic abuse from family, partners or colleagues
individual or organisational gaslighting
transgenerational and historical trauma
a chaotic, violent or inconsistent upbringing
I work to build up a sense-of-self for those who have never had the space to develop this, or who have had a former confidence systematically eroded.
As I have had the privilege of working with patients on this for many years now, I am lucky enough to be invited to keynote and teach on this internationally. I am a well-known champion of complex trauma - cPTSD - and trauma-informed care in the health system with a special focus on the person-in-pain's right to define their own experience.
