help you mastering the impact of persistent and chronic illness

Persistent Pain can destroy lives.

Can you say you tried it all?

I have worked and researched in the NHS in a busy chronic pain outpatient service.

There I gave therapy to many patients who have suffered to the extreme. Who stopped working, stopped their hobbies, and withdrew from their friends, families and their loved ones until only the pain was left in their lives.

Patients, I work with, have unexplained pain, Fibromyalgia, chronic headaches and migraines and complex chronic pain syndrome. Many survived torture, trauma and abuse. Others experience persistent pain after accidents or without any reason at all.

Together and over time, we will rebuild your life and expand it so that it once again includes the things and people you love. I can help you regain power over pain’s impact and increase your level of control and self-efficacy.

Email me to schedule a first meeting where you can get a feel for working with me. We will explore what you want from therapy and from me, and I can show you my area of expertise.

Have you lost hope that therapy can help you live better and, possibly, even live well again?

I have worked for many years in hospices, chronic pain services, on locked psychiatric wards and rehabilitation units. There, I engaged with clients who were called “highly complex and difficult” and who were deemed to be “treatment-resistant”. Clients and patients whose suffering did not seem to shift. Outside these environments, I also meet people who suffer in silence - for ages - and just want to give up.

My experience is that as long as we’re alive, we can change. You do not need hope for a better tomorrow. You only need the belief that change can exist.
