My Approach

I use a trauma informed approach in my practice which generally involves three phases:

  • Safety and stability (this may involve techniques such as using psychoeducation, grounding, meditation, movement, visualisation and resource building)

 

  • Processing trauma (focusing on integrating the difficult thoughts, feelings, sensations and pictures associated to traumatic memories through EMDR and creative activity)

 

  • Reintegration and moving forwards (using problem solving, reflection and creative tools to work towards a healthy future with positive relationships)
