PTSD & C-PTSD – Programmes
PTSD and C-PTSD are serious and debilitating disorders that occur as a result of experiencing either one trauma or repeated traumatic suffering over a long period of time. C-PTSD can often be seen in survivors of childhood abuse, domestic violence, and combat. The effects of all unresolved trauma are far-reaching and can deeply impact an individual’s ability to function in day-to-day life. However, with the right support and treatment, individuals with PTSD at any level can achieve post-traumatic growth and personal development.
We provide two separate comprehensive recovery programmes, both are designed to help individuals’ process traumatic information, manage triggers, flashbacks, regain a sense of control, and develop essential life skills. The programmes are facilitated by experienced senior accredited trained mental health professionals, who specialise in working with individuals with trauma-related disorders and associated symptoms.
PTSD (12 Week Programme)
12 week programme, incorporates an initial assessment of 90mins and 6 x fortnightly sessions of 60mins of post trauma intervention such as EMDR (eye movement desensitising reprocessing), VKD (rewind technique work), BSP (Brainspotting) and GV (Guided Visualisation). This, together with the client completing our unique PTSD workbook alongside the therapy work, enhances and enables self-regulation, encouraging a nurtured sense of responsibility around self-recovery and post traumatic growth.
C-PTSD (20 Week Programme)
20 week programme, which incorporates an initial assessment of 90mins and 10 x fortnightly sessions of 60mins of post trauma intervention such as EMDR (eye movement desensitising reprocessing), VKD (rewind technique work), BSP (brainspotting) and GV (Guided Visualisation). This, together with the client completing our unique PTSD workbook alongside the therapy work, enhances and enables self-regulation, encouraging a nurtured sense of responsibility around self-recovery and post traumatic growth.
Fees per session:
Initial Assessment (90mins) £80.00
Post Trauma Work (60mins) £75:00
Payment can be made online via bank transfer in advance or by card payment at the time of the session.
Corporate & Legal
Case Management Companies, Personal Injury Solicitors, and Insurance Companies:
These are comprehensive PTSD recovery programmes that incorporate a uniquely developed workbook, for clients to use alongside the psychological processing of their traumatic experience.
Using EMDR, as recognised by the NICE Guidelines, the programmes are designed to support individuals struggling with PTSD, and C-PTSD and associated symptoms and are a valuable tool for helping clients to achieve post-traumatic growth.
Each programme is personalised to meet each individual’s unique needs and challenges. We offer a solution that is multi-faceted, combining evidence-based modalities.
Our PTSD recovery programmes are delivered by accredited, experienced health professionals. We understand the complexities of trauma, C-PTSD and PTSD, and we are committed to providing compassionate, evidence-based care that is customised to meet each client’s individual needs and goals.
We are currently working on offering this as an online programme as well. There are a few changes we need to make first, to ensure that clients get the very best treatment, together with positive outcomes for post-traumatic growth. We get so many enquiries from abroad and this will ensure that the programme/s can reach out to those who need them in the UK and/or Internationally.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
EMDR Association UK (EMDR UK)
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
