I require 48 hours notice to cancel appointments, and require half payment if this is not adhered to for any reason.
About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative therapist and draw upon different approaches to intervention based on my clients needs. I am an EMDR Europe accredited therapist, which means I have been validated by the EMDR Association to deliver this type of therapy, which is recommended for treatment of trauma under the NICE guidelines. It has also been shown as being successful in the treatment of many other presentations such as depression, anxiety, complex grief, eating disorders and the impact of childhood adversity on present day functioning - CPTSD. I also integrate other approaches such as somatic experiencing and IFS (Internal family systems), to help relieve psychological distress.
To greater extend my practice using EMDR, I have undergone further trainings, including:
Attachment informed EMDR
Child and Adolescent EMDR part 1 and 2 training
EMDR and eating disorders
EMDR and IFS
EMDR and dissociation
EMDR and OCD
EMDR and depression
EMDR and chronic pain
EMDR and neurodiversity
I work with the needs of the client and take some time to build trust and assess your situation before embarking on EMDR if it is appropriate. The client is always in control. I work in an integrative way, so will also bring other types of therapeutic approaches into the work.
I practice ‘in person’ or virtually, the choice is yours. I have a comfortable practice room at my home in Shenfield, it is easily accessible by car or by public transport.
I’m friendly and ensure I give a good service to all my clients. I have found EMDR/Somatic Experiencing/IFS to be the most effective for healing and am passionate about this integrative approach. Please do get in touch.
My first session
The first session is an assessment meeting to see if the type of therapy I offer can help you with the issue you are coming to therapy for and for you to ask any questions you may have.
I charge my normal fee for this session.
I also offer a short 15-30 minute consultation meeting to have an initial chat to see if you wish to progress to an assessment session, I do not charge for this.
