Psychological Therapies

Starting therapy is a brave step and it can be difficult to know just what kind of therapy will help. As part of the initial consultation, I take a detailed history, understand your worldview and collaboratively develop a treatment plan to suit your individual difficulties. I offer a range of evidenced based psychological therapies to treat a wide variety of mental health difficulties. I specialise in the treatment of trauma and anxiety difficulties, particularly using EMDR therapy.

Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) 

EMDR is a powerful therapy to help you process and recover from problems triggered by past traumatic events. The focus centres on helping the brain to reprocess difficult memories in order to heal. 

EMDR is best known for treating PTSD, however, it has been shown to help with a range of mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, OCD and phobias.

See for more information on EMDR.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a structured talking therapy focused on helping you manage current problems by changing your thinking and behaviour. This is based on the concept that our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical sensations are interconnected, with negative thoughts and emotions leading us to engage in unhelpful cycles.

CBT therapy is focused on identifying and changing negative patterns to improve the way you feel. It is a practical therapy to help self-manage how you feel on a daily basis. 

CBT is effective for a wide variety of difficulties including: depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, panic disorder, PTSD, sleep and addictions.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is a structure talking therapy centred on the use of mindfulness and connection with values. As human beings, we can struggle to cope with our internal experiences and engage in struggle, avoidance and denial. 

As the name suggest, ACT helps you to develop acceptance of your thoughts, internal experiences and emotions. Through understanding our values and being able to accept our experiences, we can focus on making positive steps towards change.
