Person-centred therapy promotes the idea that everyone has the capacity for personal growth and change in the right conditions. The counsellor enables you to come to terms with any negative feelings and to change and develop in your own way.
For many people, the idea of 'homework' or looking at things differently can be difficult. If, for instance, you have been recently bereaved, or you are experiencing depression, or low self-esteem, and feel you struggle with motivation, you may find counselling a positive approach.
We will try to enable you to find ways of accepting those things you can't change, whilst challenging those that you can.
Sessions usually last 50 minutes.
Cost £45.00 per session
Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched psychotherapy
proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
It is approved by NICE and endorsed by the Department of Health for the treatment of PTSD and is used widely in the NHS.
Studies suggest that EMDR works by linking in a similar way to REM sleep, and using dual attention focus to help us to recover from traumatic memories.
In the early stages of EMDR, we will work together to complete a full history taking and assessment. We will then prepare to deliver EMDR. In phases three and four, we will target particular memories, desensitise and reprocess them. Finally, we will check whether there are any remaining present or future concerns related to your trauma memories.
