Ivan Broad Counselling, EMDR, Supervisor. MBACP, MNCS (Accr.)
Depression, anxiety, addictions, abuse, PTSD, bullying, self esteem, confidence issues, self harm or relationship issues. I can help and know that anyone can change their situation, gain insight into themselves and grow towards their potential. The first step is making the decision to do so and finding a therapist to work with.
I offer a safe and confidential space to begin to assess where you feel you are in your life, and how you wish to move forward.
With over 11 years experience of seeing and feeling the healing potential of a strong therapeutic relationship, I know it is possible for anyone to change. I draw on different models of therapy as an integrative counsellor, and continue to enhance my skills through reflective practice, training and attending experiential workshops.
I am fully qualified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), which is a technique that works with the brains natural ability to process everyday experiences. Trauma disrupts the brains usual processing, but EMDR can get your brain and nervous system functioning again using bilateral stimulation of the eyes or other areas of your body.
I can work with you using EMDR to target and re-process a specific traumatic event such as a car accident or assault. Phobias, Anxiety, Fear and unwanted patterns of behaviour can be worked through in a similar focused and structured block over several sessions (short term work). Please contact me for more information in how EMDR can help in targeting specific issues you may be struggling with.
I may suggest and work with stabilising elements of EMDR while working with you in long term therapy.
I am a qualified Equine Assisted Psychotherapist which is a lovely and often empowering alternative to room based therapies. Working in the fresh air, the horses offer support and can access deep emotional places in clients with their highly tuned non verbal communication. Horses can gently reflect back existing patterns in clients relationships and encourage healthier ways of being. Please watch the powerful videos at the bottom of the page. Contact me for further information.
