Bridget Rattigan BA , BSc, MSc, DTTH, UKCP, MBACP
For 20 years I have been a fully accredited counsellor and psychotherapist helping clients to work through and resolve a range of issues relating to trauma, relationships, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, self-esteem, self-assertiveness, anger and career transition. I offer a safe and welcoming setting where I can help you overcome fears, phobias and anxieties that are holding you back from fulfilling your goals and having the supportive and nurturing relationships you deserve.
I offer regression therapy and inner child work help process and overcome childhood and later traumas so that you can understand and resolve difficulties you may be having in present-day relationships at home and at work. I am a specialised EMDR practitioner with considerable experience in working with clients to process and overcome trauma.
I am an experienced supervisor and trainer, supervising counselling students and qualified counsellors for the past 10 years.
