About

ME_edited.jpg

Hi, I'm Imogen. 

  • I have worked with children and families for many years, which has given me a thorough understanding of childhood experiences and how they carry through into adult life.

  • My knowledge and experience has helped me develop empathy and understanding of the struggles and overwhelming feelings one has when thinking about their past and present life experiences, thoughts, and feelings.

  • I have helped my clients gain greater understanding of themselves, identify the past and present links and enabled clients to make sense of them, and work with them in the present moment.
