My Story

I qualified as a PTSD Management Practitioner in 2011 having formerly been a Royal Military Police Officer in the British Army, a West Midlands Police Officer and an instructor within the Private Security Industry. 

During the course of my service I responded to traumatic incidents myself and encountered many victims, I found I was able to help them on their journey from the traumatic incident, often through a court process and then, with coming to terms with what had happened and gaining closure. After retiring from the services I engaged in a course of training to become a specialist trauma therapist and now write and present keynote speeches and CPD awareness courses in PTSD and Suicide. I recently spoke at The Suicide Conference in South Yorkshire with South Yorkshire Police and presented a PTSD Awareness Keynote speech for The Metropolitan Police.

My clients include those with trauma from terrorist attacks, theatres of war, rape, sexual assault, child abuse, violent assaults and road traffic collisions. I also have experience with clients who have issues with coercive control, stalking, homicide and suicide.

Working closely with Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders & Veterans from the UK, US & Canada I have established an excellent reputation for making my clients feel at ease which encourages them to talk about their traumatic experience and the changes they wish to make in their lives.

I have created 5 CPD training courses in "PTSD Awareness" and 'Suicide Awareness" for Law Enforcement, Veterans and The Care Sector.

 

In 2014 I undertook a further Diploma in Transactional Analysis in Relationships and gained a Distinction. I recognise that relationships can culminate in stress, it is difficult to please everyone in your life let alone yourself, Transactional Analysis can help you to become the person you want to be while keeping those you love and care for happy.

I was also formerly a Director of a large UK company and during that period of my life I studied business. Due to my input the company gained a Price Waterhouse Award, I recognise how hard it can be to strike a work/life balance in today's busy world, more so now that everything is online. To that end I undertook an Advanced Corporate Stress Diploma in 2019 where I gained a Distinction. It can be difficult to discuss work problems with a busy supervisor and a lot of people don't want to take their work problems home, that's where Corporate Stress Management Therapy can help.



As you can see, I have a wide variety of skills and experience and I am using all of that to help my clients live their lives to their best potential.
