Helen Peters MBACP Accred and EMDR Accredited Practitioner
I offer CBT, EMDR and Counselling in Dunfermline for individuals. I specialise in working with a range of anxiety problems (including Panic Disorder, OCD and phobias) and trauma related issues.
I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an effective and recommended treatment for trauma and anxiety issues including phobias.
EMDR is the recommended treatment for trauma in national and international guidelines including the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). EMDR usually allows change to happen much quicker than with talking therapies, therefore requiring fewer treatment sessions.
I am an accredited member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and EMDR Europe. I am also a member of BABCP (The British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies).
I work collaboratively with my clients so that together we can understand what the problem may be and what is stopping you from moving on. By looking at thoughts, beliefs and behaviours I can support you to make the changes you need to overcome current difficulties. I aim to support my clients to thrive in whatever your life circumstances may be and to feel more confident managing any future challenges that may lie ahead.
I have worked as a therapist for over 10 years in different settings. This has given me experience of working with a wide range of issues including addictions, stress, a range of anxiety issues, depression, relationship problems, abuse and trauma.
