USING IDENTITY-ORIENTED PSYCHOTRAUMA THERAPY
TO RECONNECT WITH YOUR TRUE

I currently offer weekly topic-based workshops online, every Wednesday. These run from 9.30am - 6.30pm
I also offer regular in person workshops in East Sussex.
What is IoPT?
Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Theory (IoPT) is a profoundly effective way of working with early trauma, developed by Professor Dr Franz Ruppert (Munich) over the last thirty years.
I was born in London in 1976, and I now live in Sussex (SE England) with my partner Simon Lys and our two children.
I first came across IoPT in 2012, and have been working with and learning about the process of healing early trauma ever since.
From 2015 to 2018, I attended Vivian Broughton's IoPT Education Course in London, on which I was an apprentice (senior student) for two years.
I offer regular workshops using the Intention Method, as well as individual sessions, both online and in person. I was a practitioner at The Centre for Healthy Autonomy in London and now offer online introductory courses in IoPT as an independent facilitator.
In October 2018 I presented a workshop: 'Eating Disorders and Trauma' at the 4th International IoPT Conference "My Body, My Trauma, My I" in Munich, Germany. I also co-presented a workshop: 'Motherhood and Identity Development' at the same conference in 2016.
I have a particular interest in working with parents and carers, and in introducing the concept of early trauma - and its consequences - into the family home, to provide a safer, more loving environment for both parents and their children.
I am part of an international peer support group of IoPT practitioners, and I remain dedicated to working on my own early trauma, so that I can be a safer, more responsible person, parent & facilitator.
