About me

If you are seeking a different and personal approach, chat to me today. I am not your typical stereotype counsellor/psychotherapist or life coach. I DO NOT use a purist approach of any one therapy but a fusion of adapted approaches to meet your needs and those that are important to you.

"It’s my belief that one size doesn’t fit all."

Why I love what I do:

I create and inspire positive change not only in my own lives but in the lives of others. This in itself is extremely rewarding to us. I seek meaningful work; as I want to make a genuine difference.

Everyone has problems that they need to learn to overcome in their everyday lives, and therapy provides a valuable assistance to those in emotional need. When stress occurs in life, people often elect to speak to a counsellor / therapist to give them direction, support and guidance. In doing what we do best we offer hope in times of adversity, meaning and give real tools, to help real people in a real world.

What inspired me:

My formal business background was in recruitment and strategic human resource management. Previously I worked commercially with start-up companies, non-profit, as well as global brands’ supporting organisations and their employees undergoing transitional change. This exposure provide my first insight where I gained a strong awareness of human psychological capability in demanding circumstances. My natural disposition to share my passion for developing and fostering relationships with people of all ages, lead me to change career and retrain with my husband, David in the talking therapy profession.

What we do at D R DOWNES & ASSOCIATES

Both myself and my husband perform our clinical counselling psychological practice using a blended structure of Integrative, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR). Both are highly regarded and empirically proven psychological treatments, recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). They are especially relevant for the treatment of mental health conditions such as: anxiety, depression, phobias, OCD, ADHD, ASD and trauma.

It’s fair to write we probably all become mentally ‘stuck’ at some stage of our lives, with just under a third of the population, at least once in their lives, being regarded as fulfilling a criteria necessary for a diagnosable mental health condition. Relationships come to an end, howsoever. Work and our home life can get the better of us, with the opportunity for stress in abundance. Then there’s how we’re all uniquely wired, a legacy of genetics and beliefs from our forefathers.

We will help you to become ‘unstuck’. It makes good sense to work with my clients on a 360 degree basis of what’s going on for them on the biopsychosocial model. My clients wellness, alround, matters most. We use a blend of psychological therapies, coaching, mediation and training skills, in assisting individuals and businesses.

Standards:

Our passion and determination ensures that we remain at the leading edge of our profession whilst supporting adults, couples, children and adolescents. As an experienced accredited psychotherapists, we have been professionally trained, and today actively work in line with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), British Association of Behavioural Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP), EMDR Association UK and Ireland and the Association for Family Therapy.
