About me and my therapy practice
Do you find yourself:
- Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, struggling to cope?
- Do you find yourself avoiding people, places or activities you used to do or enjoy? Perhaps you are having difficulty functioning at work or home?
- You may not even remember or know what caused this change in your life however you know you want things to change for the better.
- You are not alone, I’m here to support and help you.
I’m Therese, an integrative relational 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 tools and evidenced based techniques that will support you to understanding yourself, the issues impacting your life today; and how you can get to living your life the way you want and deserve.
I work in collaboration with you – your goals are my goals - we will be on this journey together.
As every client is different, 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, to determine and discuss therapy options with you.
If your assessment suggests you have PTSD or complex PTSD, I will use trauma-focused therapy that meets NICE* guidelines for working with trauma. Therapy will include psychoeducation about reactions to trauma; strategies to manage arousal and flashbacks; safety planning; emotion regulation; help to overcome avoidance and re-establishing adaptive functioning for your work and social life. With trauma therapy the number of sessions will be determined by your personal circumstances and the severity of your symptoms.
I offer short and long-term therapy for adults and young people either online by telephone, Zoom, WhatsApp or face-to-face in Richmond, Twickenham, Kew, Kingston and surrounding areas.
I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation if you wish to take this up.
The first session will be 1.5 hours for assessment purposes
Following sessions will be 1 hour (£60)
