I work in an integrative way to meet client needs. I offer long and short term therapy. I am person centred but the therapeutic approach will depend on the problem and I may use a combination of psychodynamic work and cognitive behavioural techniques or other skills which are pertinent to the issues we are dealing with. I adhere to the ethics of the organisations I belong to and am accredited by.
EMDR is a specific therapy used to deal with post traumatic stress of any kind eg a car accident or assault or just a really unpleasant memory you are struggling with. It is used widely within the Armed Forces and the NHS.
Both CBT and EMDR are NICE approved within the NHS and have been shown to be very effective.
When we first meet we assess the best way to work together.
