About me and my therapy practice

Are you:

• anxious, overwhelmed, struggling to cope?

• experiencing nightmares, flashbacks and intrusive thoughts and images?

• feeling low mood, helpless or hopeless?

• had a traumatic event that haunts you no matter how much you try to avoid thinking about it?

I’m Therese, a qualified trauma and PTSD therapist.  The heart of my approach is to develop a strong, non-judgemental, therapeutic relationship with you to enable your personal growth and positive change.

I use a variety of evidenced-based tools, techniques and processes that will support you and help you understand why you feel the way you do; but more importantly how to move forwards to live your life the way you want and deserve to live it.

I work in collaboration with you – your goals are my goals - we will be on this journey together.

Practice description

Every client is different, and I want to ensure you receive the most appropriate, cost effective and ethical therapeutic treatment I can offer, I’ll undertake an assessment with you to get a baseline measure of where you are now, what's happened in your life and how the symptoms you are experiencing are impacting your day-to-day life.

If your assessment suggests you have PTSD or complex PTSD, I will use trauma-focused therapy that meets NICE* guidelines for working with trauma. For all other assessment outcomes, if you are within my area of competence I will use evidence-based therapeutic processes and practical exercises that will make a positive difference.

Those outside my area of competence will be referred to a more appropriate source of support.

Therapy includes:

  • psychoeducation on what's happening to you and why
  • strategies to manage arousal and flashbacks; safety planning; emotion regulation;
  • help to overcome avoidance of people, places, activities to re-establishing adaptive functioning for your work and social life
  • Free optional follow-up sessions to support ongoing maintenance of your progress

I offer short and long-term therapy for adults online via Zoom or WhatsApp.

Would you like a no obligation free 15 minute telephone consultation? Call or email me to arrange an appointment.

My first session

At our first session together we will discuss how we will work together. I will listen to you as you explain your situation and the difficulties you are experiencing; I'll ask about your symptoms and how they are affecting your life and day-to-day living. I'll use some assessment forms that will give us both a baseline measure of where you are now so we can discuss your therapy approach together.

I will go through the working alliance/contract with you to cover confidentiality, boundaries, how your data will be stored, cancellation charges and answer any questions you may have.
