Candice Joyce BSc (Hons) Psych. ADHP UKCP MNRHP EMDR Trauma Therapist
0121 308 1450 / 07837 720 549
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and adhere to its ethical framework. I have been practicing since 2007 and use an integrative approach to therapy, combining hypnosis with cognitive behaviour techniques (CBT) to help clients identify the underlying cause of presenting symptoms and change unwanted patterns of behaviour. I provide an empathic and non-judgemental environment for a client to be able to explore difficulties in their life.
Having worked for an NHS drug and alcohol service for seven years, I have also received extensive training in drugs awareness and harm reduction, helping those suffering from the effects of drug addiction. I also have a reliable method for smoking cessation, combining hypnosis with NLP, and provide the client with a new strategy that helps them to stop smoking for good.
I am also trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an effective and efficient treatment for trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD and phobias.
I have experience of working with a range of stress related problems including depression, anger management, anxiety/general anxiety disorder, trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, bereavement, eating disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, pain relief, abuse, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I have also completed research projects on both performance anxiety and OCD.
I also provide support for couples preparing for fertility treatment, pregnancy, birth and parenthood through the use of hypnosis by helping to restore the natural balance in the body.
I practice out of a very comfortable private office in Sutton Coldfield and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have with regard to starting therapy.
