Therapy

​The therapy used draws from various conceptual models and therapeutic approaches to explore both present and past difficulties – giving people tools to improve their lives in the ‘here and now’, whilst understanding the connections to their early experiences.

CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people change the thoughts and behaviours that keep them stuck in emotional distress, negative patterns of behaviour and unable to get back on track.

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.

Do you suffer from...

Social anxiety


Do you feel really uncomfortable talking to people on the phone or face to face? Do you think you are boring and people think you are stupid? Does it feel like you are in the spotlight when in social situations and just wish you could leave?




Health anxiety


Do you tend to think that a cough is a sign of throat cancer? Do you think that pains are signs of something terminal? Do you visit your GP excessively or regularly search your symptoms online to seek reassurance? Are you afraid of dying and constantly preoccupied with death?




Excessive worrying


Do you always seek reassurance from friends and family before making a decision? Do you worry about lots of different things and find it hard to control/stop worrying? Do you worry that you are not worrying?




Panic


Do you have moments when unexpectedly your body experiences intense changes such as rapid heart beats, sweating, feeling dizzy, feel out of your body, or hot and cold? When it happens, are you afraid and think that you will have a heart attack, faint, lose control or go mad?




Phobia


Do you have a fear of any animals, places or things? Do you become extremely anxious with needles and faint when you see blood?




OCD


Do you have strange thoughts that pop into your mind that make you feel so anxious or ashamed of yourself and you try your hardest to stop them? Do you check doors and windows multiple times or wash your hands several times a day? Are you uncomfortable leaving the house without carrying out lots of mental or physical rituals? Do you doubt when you have done something and find it hard to resist the urge to check?




Physical health conditions


Are you struggling with a chronic medical condition that is really getting you down or scared? Do you have an illness that has changed your life and left you struggling to live a quality life?




Low mood


Have you noticed that you have no motivation to do even the simplest of tasks and have lost interests in what you usually enjoy? Are you unusually low in energy, struggle with sleep, change in appetite and constantly feeling low in mood?




Trauma


Do you have recurring memories of past traumatic events replaying in your mind with little or no control, that make you feel like the traumatic event is happening now? Do you try block out the memory of past painful or traumatic events by drinking alcohol or taking drugs? Do you have moments where you can vividly see a past traumatic event and sometimes feel as though you have been transported back to the event?




Habits


Do you habitually pick your skin or pull your hair to the point where you have bald patches or scabs?




Other difficulties


Are you very sensitive to sounds and become extremely angry at sounds such as people sniffing and coughing? Do you struggle to sleep? Are you overwhelmed with life stresses that are becoming increasingly hard to manage?





If you answered yes to any of these and would like some support, then CBT or EMDR would be a great form of therapy for you and I would be able to help.
