About me and my therapy practice
I offer an on-line treatment approach that can enable individuals to process unresolved trauma and involves an integration of EMDR therapy and psychosynthesis psychotherapy.
My therapeutic approach is collaborative, client centred and relational. The outcome of my work with individuals is that they increase their sense of wellbeing, gain insight into difficulties, change ways of behaving and improve their ways of coping. My approach helps people balance their mind, body, feelings and spirit, which can help them to find more purpose & meaning in life and to realise their full potential.
I am an EMDR therapist, chartered psychologist and psychotherapist, with experience of helping adults who are feeling lost and anxious due to major transitions and crisis in their life.
I specialise in supporting adults who have experienced trauma, either as a series of events throughout their childhood/adulthood (complex PTSD) or as a single event (PTSD).
I have published a book that provides an outline of how individuals can recover from trauma with psychosynthesis psychotherapy (see website for more details http://www.lindahoyle.co.uk).
My first session
The initial EMDR therapy session is an opportunity for you to share with me what symptoms you are experiencing, what events trigger those experiences and a brief headline of any memories from your personal history that you know might be the root cause. I will not ask you to tell me the details of these memories at this stage.
I will help you understand what is happening to you and reassure you that this is a normal coping mechanism for anyone who has experienced trauma.
I will then outline how EMDR therapy works in practice and what the process will look and feel like for you.
The following sessions will involve teaching you grounding strategies and positive resources. This is to ensure that you feel safe and secure. Only when you feel ready, will we move forward to processing trauma memories and recent event triggers.
