Hannah Raine-Smith- Psychotherapist + EMDR Practitioner - MBACP accredited
***I OFFER ONLINE SESSIONS via fully encrypted platform Zoom (free to download) and I have a lot of experience doing this, I am also still offering face-2-face sessions.- see my website for more details***
I am an integrative therapist specialising in using eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to treat a range of psychological issues. Compared to standard talking therapy EMDR generally takes a shorter amount of time to get to the root cause of the issue. Rather than just dealing with symptom management (like CBT), EMDR works directly with the cause of your distress.
I have a practice in central Cardiff (Mon + Tues) and in Southville, Bristol (Wed, Thurs + Fri) as well as working at The Priory Hospital where I am an integrative therapist and EMDR practitioner. I am interested developmental neurobiology and the potential impact of early relationships and experiences on mental and physical health (See ACE study). I use EMDR therapy to help re-process the different layers of trauma that build up over time and ease mental distress.
I am passionate about making counselling and psychotherapy more accessible and one way I can do this is by offering reduced rates for low income clients. I have a limited number of these appointments and they are negotiated on a case by case basis - give me a call on 07454533341 and we can discuss this. I also offer online therapy sessions which means that you can see me from your own house at your convenience. See my bookings information below for pricing.
I also offer online therapy for which I use Zoom a confidential, GDPR compliant video app similar to Skype. You do not need to download any software, I will just send you a link for you to attend the appointment.
I also offer an intensive EMDR therapy treatment (see fee schedule for more details).
I work with a variety of issues including:
- Traumatic stress
- Depression & anxiety
- Anger management
- Feelings of isolation/loneliness
- Relationship issues
- Exam stress
- CLINICAL SUPERVISION
****PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR AVAILABILITY AND WHETHER YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND MY BRISTOL OR CARDIFF PRACTICE ON YOUR ENQUIRY FORM (THIS WILL SPEED THINGS UP!)****
If you have any questions about the way that I work or the therapy process in general give me a call on 07454 533 341 and we can have a confidential chat.

Integrative Psychotherapy (Including EMDR therapy) £80 per hour
Intensive EMDR therapy £100 per hour- This format of EMDR is quick and efficient and can get to the root of the matter in only a few longer sessions. This is more suitable for less complex presentations but can be adapted for a wide range of issues. It is particularly good for people who are too busy to commit to regular weekly appointments.
