Sabina Rostampour, MBACP (Accred): Counsellor & EMDR Therapist in Cambridge
I offer Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy as well as EMDR.
COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
Counselling offers a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for exploring and processing emotional difficulties and life’s challenges, past or present. Through a collaborative process we will be able to identify and strengthen your coping strategies, and gain new insights. I believe most of us can benefit from feeling empowered through getting in touch with our own inner resources, with a hope to adopt a more proactive approach towards maintaining a balanced way of being and functioning in our lives. Through gaining a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours we will work on finding ways of coming to terms with what might be troubling you as well as expanding your choices in how you manage emotions, relationships and navigate your way safely through difficult or overwhelming times.
Through my experience of working as a counsellor in a GP practice, university student counselling service, a community counselling centre, and as university staff counsellor I have gained experience addressing a variety of issues including: work related stress, self-confidence issues, grief, depression, anxiety, self-harm, abuse, relationship issues, miscarriage, childhood sexual abuse, assault, emotional abuse, family issues, stress and trauma.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) is an evidence based innovative clinical therapy that is used within the NHS and worldwide for the treatment of trauma, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress) as well as anxiety-related disorders.
EMDR is a time efficient modality that significantly reduces intrusive thoughts, anxiety, flashbacks, avoidant behaviour, and disturbing memories. EMDR effectively heals aftereffects of distressing experiences such as car accidents, assault, war trauma, domestic violence, sexual abuse, childhood neglect and other traumatic experiences. It is also used to treat panic disorders, phobias and performance anxiety.
Through facilitating activation of new adaptive networks in the brain EMDR noticeably alleviates emotional and physiological distress.
Course of treatment usually requires 6 to 12 sessions depending on presenting issues.
