What is counselling about?
Psychotherapy / EMDR is a process which can help you explore various issues. The aim is to allow you the space to share any difficulties, dissatisfaction, hopes, aspirations, fears and any confusing thoughts you may have. These issues may have troubled you for many years and keep resurfacing, or they can be issues which have just come about and you would like to explore them with someone.
The Person Centered and EMDR approach to therapy is mainly about the quality of the relationship between the client and the therapist. This means it's important to develop a mutually respectful relationship, which enables you to feel safe and accepted, so that you can explore your concerns and what you hope to achieve from entering a counselling relationship with me.
Further, as a person centered / EMDR therapist, my aims are to provide you with a genuine relationship that is empathic and non-judgmental. The way I work is to understand you and the impact of your experiences free from judgement or interpretation. This in turn can help you to reconnect with your core being in order to bring greater awareness to oneself and a freedom of spirit. My belief is that being in the presence of another, being able to share what is troubling you without feeling judged, analysed or told what to do can be healing in itself.
EMDR and attachment informed EMDR, are very powerful and can bring about rapid results to a wide range of symptomatic behaviour.
It takes many years to train as a therapist both academically and professionally. Equally, I continue to keep up to date with current research and I attend regular supervision and training so that I can offer you a bespoke service.
Currently, I am training in a year long study in Transactional analysis which I intergrate into my depth of understanding of early years attachment difficulties.
If you think I may be able to help you or somebody you care for, do give me a call on 07565215564 or contact me by email. I'm happy to discuss whether counselling is suitable, or make an appointment for a first session if you wish. There are more details on my Contact page.
