Hayley Graham BSc (Hons), MA, Adv. Dip. Reg. MBACP (Accred), EMDR Therapist
Often we find ourselves thinking things like 'Why does this keep happening to me?' or 'Here we go again.'
Sometimes we feel that no matter what we do to try and change things we end up going round and round in circles.
I can help you identify and understand the thought processes and patterns that underpin your problems. I can help you make the necessary changes to break free of these old patterns and bring about lasting change.
I offer a pro-active, focused and dynamic approach. I have three treatment goals; for you to re-discover your voice, establish your own priorities and find the courage you need to act upon them. I will help you to achieve the changes you want and help you sustain those changes. You will discover how to respond to life's inevitable ups and downs through the development of insight and be empowered to use Transactional Analysis techniques and concepts for yourself. To put it another way, my aim is to do myself out of a job.
I believe it takes great courage to seek help, particularly if you are new to therapy. I have undergone extensive personal psychotherapy as part of my training and fully understand what it is like to be a client. You can be assured of a warm welcome. In the first free session you will have plenty of time and space to tell me about your problems and ask any questions you might have. I will take some details, tell you a little more about the way I work and then, together, we can decide the best way forward.
I am now able to offer EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitisation Reprocessing) a powerful technique that specifically addresses trauma. Please contact me for details.
