About Charlie

"I have a passion for integrating mind, body and spirit into the work we do and applying current, up-to-date advances in the treatment of trauma in a creative and formulation-based way. I have a broad and varied experience having worked in different settings in both private organisations - I was clinical director of a residential trauma unit and ran an out-patient clinic in Harley Street - and as clinical psychologist and lecturer in the National Health Service. I have specialised primarily in trauma, abuse and their many manifestations. My main aim is to help clients to observe, understand and change patterns laid down in childhood and through acute stress. Attunement is key and accompanying clients on such a journey and seeing them transform and accept is a huge privilege." Learn more about Charlie here.
