Training, qualifications & experience
Sue and Audrey have over 20 years experience of practice in mental health and well-being in the National Health Service delivering NICE guideline approved and recommended therapies including Integrative, Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic and Person Centred models. This enables work with a shorter term solution focus or in a longer term in depth way, reflecting our Clients' needs and presentations.
Our qualifications and experience enable us to work with our Clients on a broad range of specific emotional problems and common mental health difficulties. These include, but are not limited to, General and Specific Anxieties, Depression, Relationship Difficulties, Bereavement, Trauma, Loss and Abuse.
Both Sue and Audrey are trained in and practice EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), a further NICE approved therapy, endorsed by the World Health Organisation as an effective treatment of Trauma. Now increasingly sought after, it addresses PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and other forms of trauma such as birth trauma, those who have been victims of crime and survivors of near death experiences. EMDR is also used effectively in Pain Management and the treatment of Phobia. Audrey is an accredited EMDR Europe and Ireland Practitioner and also holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Supervision. Sue completed additional specialist training at the Institute of Psychiatry in London "Achieving Excellence in CBT".
