For each client, I take a holistic approach and will offer you a safe, non-judgmental space in which you can explore the causes of your issues, becoming more mindful about your learned behaviours and developing different emotional tools to adjust to life’s difficult challenges.
EMDR treatment for trauma
EMDR is a complex and powerful therapy, which has been shown to have huge benefits in treating psychological trauma caused by a wide range of experiences, including war, childhood trauma, assault, surgical trauma, workplace or road accidents, and abuse or neglect.
EMDR should only ever be carried out by clinicians who have undergone thorough training. As a member of the EMDR Association UK you can verify my accreditation by going to www.emdrassociation.org.uk and can view more information about the process of EMDR theory.
Trauma from childhood experiences
Many people find that having space and time to talk to a counsellor can help them understand the root cause of their problems and give them the tools to get more out of relationships and improve communication difficulties.
Loss & Bereavement
I see clients who are struggling to deal with bereavement, and have found that counselling can help you work through these difficulties in order to move on from your loss.
I see clients struggling with stress caused for a variety of reasons, including stress at work or significant life events, and work with them to develop strategies for managing their stress.
I see clients dealing with all levels of depression, including those who feel their life has become meaningless and lacking in purpose, as well as clients who are suicidal.
Counselling can help you resolve the root cause of your anxiety, helping to restore your natural levels of anxiety and contributing to physical and mental wellbeing.
Counselling can help you deal with low self-esteem by helping you explore and then resolve the origins of your dysfunctional beliefs about yourself. Over time, this can deepen a new sense of self and a new way of being.
Pain & Medically unexplained symptoms
I will work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour around your symptoms, and the impact it has on your life. Through this, you can identify areas of change and strategies to help you manage. I use EMDR to process issues, which has been proven to be very useful in lessening the person’s perception of pain and its associated meanings.
