About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative Trauma therapist specialising in complex trauma such as historical abuse , domestic violence and PTSD.
Working from an integrative perspective, means that I combine different theories and ways of working, within a warm, caring and accepting approach, very much tailored to your individual difficulties and circumstances.
I am also trained as an EMDR (trauma) therapist and may suggest using EMDR to address recent or past traumas, where these are causing or influencing difficulties in the present, including relational issues. EMDR is a strongly-evidenced and fully collaborative therapy that can work quickly to get to the root of present problems and symptoms. By linking together past memories and emotions, present events and future fears, we can bring about relief of symptoms and real and lasting change.
Please see https://www.getselfhelp.co.uk//docs/EMDR.pdf for a brief explanation of EMDR.
We may also, if needed, use cognitive behavioural (CBT) strategies and techniques to help you gain relief from troubling current symptoms such as anxiety, panic, anger and depression.
Thank you for taking time to view my profile. I appreciate that it can be difficult to choose a therapist and how important it is to take time to find the right person.
I am a counsellor and EMDR therapist, passionate and enthusiastic about helping people with emotional and mental health difficulties.
I work particularly with difficulties caused by Trauma past or recent, with bereavement and with other difficult losses and life events. I work with all types of abuse in childhood. Through the therapy we hope to understand and alleviate symptoms such as anxiety, stress, anger, guilt, shame or depression.
I aim to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space, in which we can explore your difficulties together, to try to make sense of what may have happened, to understand confusion and disconnection. Often people tell me that they want to ‘put the pieces of the puzzle together’, or even to find the pieces. A good outcome might be that you feel more ‘together’, more grounded, more confident, and a sense that we have ‘joined the dots’.
I also work well with;-

My first session
I offer an introductory session at a lower rate of £25. This session allows us to meet and decide whether you would like to continue with a course of counselling sessions.
