My main interest is in working with you to resolve trauma and abuse issues and to help you to clear unpleasant symptoms related to your difficult experiences. I don't operate a rigid definition of the word trauma - it is whatever it means to you. Trauma might be manifesting, or even hiding, in current symptoms including anxiety, depression, stress, anger issues, relationship problems, phobias or OCD for example.
Much of my work with you is to explore and locate the source of those difficulties which might well go back to childhood. I then use various methods to resolve these issues, hopefully for good.
My preferred therapy for trauma is EMDR - I am an EMDR Europe & EMDR UK & Ireland accredited practitioner.

EMDR Therapy for Trauma, Abuse & Other Issues
This distinct form of therapy utilises a targeted approach to resolve various issues where you have felt disturbing and difficult feelings. These issues, sometimes including feelings such as anxiety and depression, may have been underpinned by events which have felt traumatic to you. Please note that EMDR uses special protocols, sometimes using special equipment, to enable you to resolve these issues and to facilitate emotional change at a deep physiological and neurological level. It is unique and follows a specific procedure which is unlike other forms of talking therapy. Therefore, it is generally recommended that sessions last for 1.5 hours either weekly or fortnightly.
**For good progress to be made it's much better to come weekly but fortnightly may be considered and discussed in the assessment session.
COST : Assessment session for an individual lasts for 1.5 hours and the fee is £110.
