Simon Carpenter EMDR EUR Accrd Practitioner BA counselling /psycho (BACP Accred)
I am BACP and EMDR Europe accredited practitioner and work within the professional standards required for these professional bodies. I have 10 years experience providing therapeutic intervention for adults, children and young people . I have qualified to degree level, within a wide range of therapeutic models and practicing as an integrative therapist within a humanistic foundation. This enables me to be creative and flexible in relation to the way my clients wish to work. I feel passionately that the therapeutic relationship is the key to being able to be alongside the client, supporting them as they choose their path, and that the client needs to be in the right place at the right time with the right person.
Alongside my private practice I have worked with adults and children and young people in Schools, Colleges and Universities. I have over 13 years experience working with domestic abuse and the impact of sexual violence in adults and children and young people. My work includes: male and female rape ,sexual abuse, relationship break down, bullying, same sex relationships, self-esteem, attachment issues, adoption and identity issues. I also provide supervision for other counsellors and therapists.
During the last 8 years I have developed a local Cornish Children and Young persons Charity and where I am the CEO. We offer therapy to children and young people who have experienced physical, emotional. sexual psychological abuse. There are 25 other therapists who offer a range of therapeutic models, which include , music. art, drama, dance and movement, Theraplay ,psychotherapy, counselling.
I am a now under going EMDR practitioner accreditation status for children, young people so I can use this therapeutic approach with the a younger client group where appropriate who may have had past experiences that have resulted in a Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. I am also qualified to offer Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy(DDP) level 1 and 2 to help with attachment issues between children and their parents / carers. This resonates my personal interests in gardening, cooking and other outdoor pursuits with my family.
