Trauma Specialist

We usually associate trauma with war, natural disasters or major accidents. However, adverse life circumstances, traumatic stress and mental health problems are recurrent obstacles to adults as these traumatic factors have a direct impact on the well-being of a person and distract one's perceptions and functioning. In practice this means that the past is constantly affecting the present.

When these overwhelming events are discussed in the presence of a skilled and empathic therapist, we can get to the root of the traumatic experiences. Over the past 20 years I have worked with  survivors of sexual abuse, ritual abuse and mind control. I have successfully worked with some people who were deemed unsuitable for therapy. I specialise in PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder), DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), as well as other trauma related difficulties.

I have written articles, book chapters and spoken at international trauma conferences. I am a member of ISSTD (International Society for Trauma & Dissociation) and ESTD (European Society for Trauma & Dissociation).

Trauma therapy

If I give you my story

how would I know

that you won’t turn it

into rock and stones

rigid like my battered bones?

That your ears are not so broken

and your heart is not so shaken

like mine

that your imperfect mind

will not use some cheap metaphors

that our projections (you call countertransference)

become your shrine

and that your patient smile

is not for me to abhor

Instead, little by little

you can tell

that the need for my hell

is to become a feather

then sail

floating on a broken wave

away from the daily rave

to unknown land

still close to our hearts

yet slightly further from the past

repeating old mistakes

(Admit) your truth is not universal

but for me to choose and take in,

I think that’s what you mean

when you talk about trust.
