The Trauma Practice
A private counselling and psychotherapy practice providing therapy for mental health difficulties.
We have two physical locations. One in Paddington London and the other in Cuffley Hertfordshire. We also offer online therapy.
MA, BSc, Dip, Dip Psych - Counsellor, Psychotherapist & EMDR Practitioner.
Welcome to The Trauma Practice. We provide psychological help for mental health difficulties. The therapy I offer includes: counselling, psychotherapy, eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) and body psychotherapy. Within these therapies I might utilise a number of different modalities to support you with your difficulty.
I appreciate that having a mental health problem can be a difficult time. We aim to support you and help you restore homeostasis and balance back into your life. I look forward to hearing from you.
We use person centred counselling and psychotherapy to help clients achieve their goals. Talking therapies can help with self empowerment and achieving long lasting goals. All of the therapy we offer is underpinned by a holistic integrative approach.
EMDR is an acronym which stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing Therapy. It is the leading evidence based treatment for trauma and PTSD. It is a type of psychotherapy which helps with the mind and the body.
Body psychotherapy is a way of working with the body in relation to psychological difficulties. The mind and body are connected so it makes sense to work on both in relation to psychological difficulties especially when working with trauma.
'Experiencing a mental health difficulty is not a choice but making a decision to get help for your recovery is.'
