11 Years Experience

Integrative Therapeutic Coaching; healing psychological trauma, inspiring personal growth and shining a light on the human need for connection, with kindness. A leading dynamic Therapeutic Coach transforming lives globally.

When Cocaine, Alcohol, Gaming, Gambling or other addictive behaviours are controlling you, talking is not enough. Let's get to the bottom of what triggers your anxiety, stress, panic, loneliness, anger or other symptoms causing you to struggle in life at the moment.

Hello, I'm Ann Marie and it will be my privilege to work with you. Whatever is holding you back from living your life on your terms with meaning, inner peace and self-compassion is worth having a conversation about. As a dynamic and leading integrative therapeutic coach and trauma therapist, I do not believe in a 'one size fits all'.

Our collaborative alliance, coupled with my innate capacity to respond intuitively and authentically is at the heart of the transformation and success you will experience in working with me. Today you can create a different tomorrow.

'I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.' Carl Jung

YOU are not Alone, I will sit with you in a safe and impartial space and together we will find a way of working with kindness, curiosity, compassion and humour. Yes, we will laugh too! My hope for you is that you speak kindly to yourself and dare to dream. I'm here for YOU.

My knowledge of integrative psychotherapy and coaching psychology allow me to draw from a range of approaches to work creatively with you and act as a catalyst for new perspectives to emerge. All too often people come when they are at a low point, even burnt out. Maybe friends and family have stopped listening; you may feel alone, without support, even without hope. Life transitions can be planned milestones and celebrations. Sometimes they are unplanned and hit us like curveballs, changing our way of being, our identity and crushing our dreams. Such traumatic events get stuck in processing and require professional help to process and heal.

I have many years of corporate experience in the City working in training and leadership roles. Together with my team of experts, I designed, developed and delivered innovative and bespoke training initiatives, often rolling out multiple projects simultaneously within global investment banking corporations and SMEs.

However, personal loss was the catalyst for my transition from being a high-flyer in the City to a place of introspection and personal growth. Therapeutic Coaching is paramount to wellbeing and personal growth; sharing your story, your experiences, your thoughts and feelings with a professional in a confidential and non-judgemental environment enables change, facilitates healing and enriches life with greater meaning and awareness. It is my privilege to both facilitate and bear witness to the process; the sense of hope and possibility in the midst of struggle and vulnerability.

'To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.' Oscar Wilde

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is one of the most significant, exciting and innovative developments for decades in the treatment of psychological developmental and emotional trauma related conditions. The impact of psychological trauma is traditionally known as 'soul loss'.

When a person’s psychological homeostatic mechanisms are overwhelmed, their ability to cope with a situation may be exceeded. They are then no longer able to help themselves through the fight or flight mechanism and they go into a freeze response. Many people will recover from this naturally, without professional intervention, but some people may develop ongoing symptoms which require professional intervention. What is challenging but manageable for one person may prove traumatic for another. Trauma may go unrecognised for years, sometimes only being picked up when the sufferer seeks help for something else, such as anger management, addictions, suicidal ideation, or relationship issues.

As a leading Trauma Therapist in Harley Street, I regularly treat single event trauma. This transformative work enables the overwhelming responses to the experienced trauma to be processed and become a 'normal' memory. Examples of single event trauma experiences: motor accident, mugging, rape, spiked drink, difficult childbirth, IVF, medical experiences, hearing shocking news like medical diagnosis, loss: bereavement, stillbirth, miscarriage, abortion, separation, divorce.

Clients often present because of triggers affecting their everyday life; they are often unaware of the root cause of their sabotaging behaviours, emotional numbness, relationship issues. When a person has been subjected to ongoing trauma, as in child abuse/neglect or domestic intimidation or violence, that could give rise to complex trauma. Abuse or neglect in childhood that has significantly affected normal psychological, emotional and social development may be referred to as developmental trauma. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be diagnosed after certain kinds of traumatic events when symptoms have been ongoing for longer than one month. Delayed onset PTSD is also possible.

Not all wounds are visible; symptoms may include:
• Nightmares
• Guilt
• Poor judgment
• Intrusive memories
• Poor memory
• Survivor guilt
• Flashbacks
• Startle reflex
• Hyper-vigilance
• Irritability
• Anger and rage
• Self-destructive behaviours
• Lack of feelings
• Insomnia
• Poor concentration
• Hopelessness
• Poor self-esteem
• Negative self-image
• Apathy
• Mistrust
• Isolation
• Avoidance
• Excessive blame
• Dissociation
