Services I Provide

Counselling & Psychotherapy For Trauma & PTSD

Psychotherapy and counselling help individuals with trauma and PTSD by providing a structured and supportive environment for healing. Here are some ways in which my therapeutic approaches can help.

Establishing Safety and Trust

Has trauma shattered your sense of safety? I provide a safe and confidential space where individuals can express their thoughts and emotions without fear of judgment. Building trust is a key aspect of the therapeutic relationship.

Understanding and Processing Traumatic Experiences

Together we can explore and make sense of your traumatic experiences. Understanding the impact of the trauma is a crucial step toward healing. We will audit your thoughts, emotions and the behaviours associated with the trauma with the goal of increasing your sense of agency and your ability to process them and get on with living your best life.

Coping Skills and Emotional Regulation

I can teach you practical coping skills to help you to manage overwhelming emotions associated with trauma. This may include relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and strategies to regulate emotions in the face of triggers.

Building Resilience and Self-Empowerment

We may focus on enhancing your resilience and promoting your sense of empowerment. By helping you to recognise your strengths, we will develop coping strategies so you can regain a sense of control over your life.

I am a qualified and experienced therapist specialising in trauma and PTSD. The therapeutic process will be collaborative, and the pace of treatment based on your individual readiness and comfort level.

I use a combination of approaches tailored to the specific needs of each individual the choices vary depending on your preferences and the nature of the trauma.
