Bernadette Musker Msc, UKCP, MBACP, COSRT
I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and a registered member of the BACP. I am also a Clinical Supervisor, Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist, EMDR Practitioner and a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I work at my private practice in Esher, specialising in Relationship & Psychosexual Therapy and Trauma. I am an Integrative Practitioner and work in a very relational way and I will use whatever style of therapy I feel is best suited to my client and their particular needs. This means I aim to offer the best therapy for the individual rather than a particular style of therapy which is not always suitable for each individual client and their unique personal circumstances. I specialise in helping people to reach their true potential and achieve their goals. I am especially interested in working with people who experience work related stress and anxiety, bereavement issues, depression, relationship and family problems, anxiety attacks, phobias and many other issues. I help my clients overcome their issues and will endeavour to do all I can to help them to reach their goals.
As well as being a UKCP Registered Therapist, I am also a member of the BACP and a member of the College of Relationship & Psychosexual Therapy (COSRT) and have completed a PostGrad Diploma in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy. I specialise in Trauma Therapy and offer clients Trauma Focussed CBT and am an EMDR Practitioner. I am also a Mindfulness Teacher.
