Trauma therapy requires an integrated approach with an emphasis on stabilisation, grounding and safety. Therapy is carried out within a safe container so you feel safe to process your experience.

Trauma symptoms can turn into PTSD if they go on longer than one month. PTSD symptoms can manifest weeks or months later. PTSD is now treatable with EMDR therapy. Symptoms might include intrusive thoughts, alteration in moods and hyperarousal.

Tinnitus retraining therapy

We use a holistic approach to tinnitus which involves helping you find a place of safety and relaxation. We help you to reduce tinnitus symptoms and habituate to tinnitus.  This involves mind and body work.

Addiction counselling

Addiction counselling helps you to understand what role the addiction is playing in your life and what is underlying the addiction. Addictive behaviour can manifest from a number of difficulties including unprocessed trauma and regulation difficulties.

Body or somatic therapy is a way of working which honours the body's role in trauma work, tinnitus, anxiety and depression. The mind and the body are connected and influence each other. We therefore help with both as part of our holistic therapeutic approach. 

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

We use Cranio-Sacral Therapy to help the flow of energy, release energy held in the nervous system and help you to relax. This a great therapy for anxiety, TMJ problems, trauma and tinnitus.
