Eclectic Counselling

As an eclectic counselling psychologist and therapist, trained in a range of therapy styles, I work with clients to build an understanding of the issues or challenges they face and the way in which their unique needs, personality, values and ideas about the world affect their ability to address them.

Each client's therapy is different, with the form it takes being agreed through a process of gentle exploration and confirmation of what works best for you. This flexible approach means that we are not restricted to a one-size-fits-all perspective, recognizing that your preferences and the effectiveness of the therapy is more important than theory, and taking into account the fact that research demonstrates that it is the relationship between client and therapist that produces healing.

Existential Counselling

At the core of my practice are existential ideas e.g. the fact that as human beings we all face many of the same challenges including anxiety and sadness, getting on with other people, death and loss, loneliness and isolation, freedom, choice and responsibility, trauma and limitations and how to live in a meaningful way.

The existential approach is based on the principle that you are the expert as far as your life is concerned and that it is possible for you, with support, to make sense of the problems and difficulties you face and to experience your life to the full to live in a way that feels real.

I will work with you to explore your situation and to:

  • examine the things that are really important to you, the things that really make your life meaningful;
  • identify behaviours, and attitudes, and ways of looking at the world that help you achieve the things that are really important in your life, and those that get in the way of you achieving these things;
  • Enable you to make your own choices about the way you live, based on what you discover.

Existential therapy is increasingly popular with individuals and couples who want to address fundamental issues such as how to make the most of life, how to live harmoniously with other people and how to address life's challenges and traumas.

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy approach designed for working with distressing or traumatic memories.

The theory behind EMDR is that many psychological difficulties are the result of distressing life experiences which have not been stored in memory properly and are said to be unprocessed or blocked.

These traumatic memories may need some help to become processed, and EMDR is one way to do this.

EMDR can be helpful on its own when you are facing a single trauma or phobia, for example - or it may be one of a number of ways we work together to address more complex or multiple issues.
