What I help people with
My professional experience brings with it the skills to work with a broad range of concerns, difficulties, and most importantly, you.
Many problems encountered require more than talking about the problem, especially physical ones stemming from mood or trauma.
For example if you have a sex problem then simply talking about it or changing your thinking would help, but this is often not the case.
I use methods such as Brainspotting, EMDR, and IFS to help, as these work deeper and also work with your nervous system which is where the root of problem is - not in the thinking part of the brain.
It is difficult to list everything that I work with as there are many problems in life, and everyone's situation is unique.
I work with you on the things that you want help with. Ultimately I work with people when life is difficult.
I also like to work with people who want to increase self-awareness, and develop.
If you are unsure just contact me.
I regularly work with people who bring the following to therapy:
Abuse in any form
Bereavement & Loss
Trauma & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder/PTSD inc. Traumatic birth
Obsessive 'Pure O'
Thoughts of wanting to hurt people or self
“Psychotherapy works for the treatment of depression, and the benefits are substantial. In head-to-head comparisons, in which the short-term effects of psychotherapy and antidepressants are pitted against each other, psychotherapy works as well as medication. This is true regardless of how depressed the person is to begin with.
Psychotherapy looks even better when its long-term effectiveness is assessed. Formerly depressed patients are far more likely to relapse and become depressed again after treatment with antidepressants than they are after psychotherapy. As a result, psychotherapy is significantly more effective than medication when measured some time after treatment has ended, and the more time that has passed since the end of treatment, the larger the difference between drugs and psychotherapy.”
