Yvonne Bullen Psychotherapist /EMDR/ Counsellor (UKCP, FPC, BPC)
As an experienced Psychotherapist & Counsellor working in the City (EC4, EC2), Kings Langley (WD4) and Chesham (HP5) I work with warmth and compassion, fully accepting and being present to your unique situation, reflecting the sensitive nature of our work together.
I realise beginning therapy can feel like a daunting experience, but when the days feel a struggle to get through, you may wish you could talk to someone who has empathy and compassion, whilst being able to offer you a source of ongoing support which enables you to gain the strength and resources required to cope with life.
Maybe you're going through a personal, professional or relational crisis? Struggling with what feels like stress, depression or anxiety related disorders, have erratic low mood swings and panic attacks.
Perhaps you're experiencing difficulty with relationships and intimacy, worried about a dependency on unhelpful coping mechanisms to get through the day?
Finding someone you feel able to talk to and are able to share your thoughts and feelings with, can bring immense relief; offering you a pathway towards being able to lead a more contented life.
With this in mind, I offer a confidential, safe and professional space where you can take the time you need to share, explore and reflect on the emotional, mental and behavioural problems which you may be finding troubling or difficult to work through.
My work is primarily relational and psychodynamic and is based on an understanding that our past experiences and unconscious thought processes impact on our present day thoughts, feelings and ways of relating to others in everyday life.
I also work using EMDR (eye movement de-sensitisation and reprocessing) if appropriate to your symptoms. EMDR works on a multiple levels and is highly effective in treating a number of troubling issues ranging from traumatic events and memories to anxiety, depression and other mental health related issues.
Whatever your fears and difficulties may be , I work on the understanding that living a more contented life begins when you allow yourself the space and time to reveal inner processes which are out of your current awareness and yet seem to exert tremendous control over your life.
With this in mind, I draw on my therapeutic creativity and other modality influences to inform our work together, enabling a collaborative experience to evolve which is both creative and relational.
I am able to offer you the benefit of my extensive experience in providing open-ended and time limited short-term psychotherapy and counselling to a diverse client base presenting with a wide range of troubling issues.

I work with clients for open-ended, time limited and pre-scheduled ad-hoc sessions depending on the orientation of the work from psychotherapy, EMDR, coaching to therapeutic coaching or in house corporate sessions.
How long we will work together will depend on what you are looking to gain from our sessions and what feels right for both of us
Following a short telephone consultation, I offer an initial intake session which begins the process of exploring your present situation and discussing your needs in a relaxed environment.
During this time we can take a closer look in more detail at what you are looking for form our time together. It will give you an opportunity to meet me in person, ask questions and see if working with me feels right for you at this time.
