About me

Are you feeling stuck? Like you are just going through the motions, living in autopilot? Maybe you feel on edge, overwhelmed, and like your emotions are going to spill over at any time. Maybe you swing from feeling really anxious and stressed, to feeling numb, shutdown and spaced out. Feeling sad, lonely and hopeless. Or a mix of all of these. You might understand what the issue is, and why it’s there - and yet you still feel the same. You don't understand why you haven’t just been able to move on. You might feel deeply ashamed about how you feel, hiding this or withdrawing from others. You are not alone. I can help.

I am Dr Charis, a Clinical Psychologist specialising in using EMDR to understand how the past shows up in the present, and finding ways to move forward. If you need a straight talking, kind, (and human!) therapist to help you work out where you want to be - you are in the right place. 

Starting therapy is a big step, and finding a therapist can be hard. Therapy needs to feel right for you. Go to my website or drop me an email to learn more about me and my work, and schedule in a free 15 minute initial call to see if we feel a good fit. I look forward to meeting you or someone you care about. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I specialise in working with people who have been through trauma and difficult experiences. Often people assume that trauma means only single frightening events, like a car accident. Psychologists understand that many experiences can be traumatic, including abuse and neglect, bullying, major life transitions, racism and oppression, and experiences of grief, loss and betrayal. Neurodivergent people often find masking, overwhelm and feeling 'different' in an ableist society over a long period very traumatic. Experiences of trauma can show up in the present as PTSD, depression, anxiety, panic, low confidence and self-esteem and feeling unable to trust yourself. You might feel that you have lost yourself.

One therapy I use often is Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR focuses on building on internal resources and strengths to support you in re-processing difficult past experiences, feel more present in the here and now, and more confident for the future. I am the first UK provider of the Equilateral Equine Assisted EMDR model, and also provide Canine Assisted EMDR.

I have been a qualified Clinical Psychologist for 6 years, and have worked in mental health in the NHS for 12 years. Becoming a Clinical Psychologist takes on average around 8 years and includes completing a doctorate in the NHS. Clinical Psychologist is a protected title, and can only be used by those registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

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.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
