Yara Steel MBACP (Accred) UKRCP EMDR /Somatic Experience Therapy, Supervisor
Kingston Upon Thames
I am a qualified BACP (Accredited) counsellor with a private practice in Kingston upon Thames offering Integrative counselling to individuals or couples.
Integrative counselling draws upon different theories such as humanistic and psychodynamic and may involve exploring links with the past and the present in order to help facilitate a more empowered choice towards the future.
EMDR was originally designed to treat traumatic or dysfunctional memories and experiences and their psychological consequences, and although the procedure has increasingly been used to treat a wide range of distress such as phobias, anxiety, panic attacks, pain, etc, it has primarily been used for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
I will offer you a warm, accepting and non-judgmental relationship, gently encouraging you to examine what has brought you to this stage of your like, whilst supporting you in ways you wish to change.
With a clearer awareness and understanding of our behaviour, we become more in control of our lives thereby more able to initiate wanted change.
I have a great belief in the human's potential and that everyone holds the key within themselves to find a way of living a life that compliments their true self.
I am by nature deeply but quietly spiritual and in awe at the magic and mystery of life. I bring to my work sensitivity, intuition and compassion.
