Experience
I have experience of successfully working with clients from a Humanistic perspective using CBT and/or EMDR (integrating other modalities as appropriate), in the following areas:-

  • addictions (drug, alcohol, gambling, sex and internet pornography)
  • anger management /stress management
  • anxiety and panic
  • assertiveness
  • bereavement / loss
  • confidence / self-esteem

  • motivation
  • PAIN
  • relationship issues
  • TRAUMA (Big T = road traffic accidents, abuse, suicide survivor, etc and   Little t = anything from the past that 'still lives within')
