These are just some of the areas I have worked in, however, we can work in whatever area you wish to talk through.
What often happens is that the ‘reason’ we thought we were coming to talk about in counselling, often turns out not to be the reason at all – sometimes it’s a symptom but not the cause.
Sometimes we just don’t know what it is that’s ‘wrong’, that’s ok too!
Together we can work it out and I will support you to work through it.
Many times I explain to people that if you had a broken toe you would happily pick up the phone and make an appointment with a doctor, it’s really no different having broken hearts or feelings and emotions – we just can’t see it, but it is there.
Please do contact me – you owe it to yourself to find your peace.
It helps so much to talk, and I’m here, ready to hear you.
These are just some of the areas I cover
Childhood Issues (emerging in adulthood)
Clarity of thought (Big decisions looming)
Divorce / Separation
General help (talking through your thoughts)
Intimate relationship problems
Lack of confidence
Low self esteem
Repeating behavior patterns (going round in circles)
Married, co-habiting, separating? Do you feel stuck? Do you feel unloved? Or is love absent altogether?
Perhaps you feel there is something else missing?
Wherever you are in your relationship and whatever you are feeling – there is a way forward.
Working together on your feelings we can work these problems out and find a solution that works for you.
No topic is too trivial, too personal, too embarrassing.
If its painful it’s important, let’s work through it.
The ‘Rewind Therapy’ (RT) or ‘Rewind Technique’, was founded and developed by Dr David Muss in the early 90’s. Since this time it has become internationally recognised as indispensable in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The Rewind Technique is different from other current trauma approach therapies because no details are disclosed to the therapist hence the treatment is known as "closure without disclosure".
BENEFITS OF REWIND THERAPY
The main benefit of Rewind Therapy is that it is a non-disclosure therapy. As a therapist I do not need to hear the details of the traumatic event, unless you particularly want to speak about it. Only the most minimal information is spoken about in session, with the overall biggest benefit being a minimal risk to the client of being re-traumatised!
It works to permanently stop ‘involuntary recall’ (including nightmares, anxiety, flashbacks, avoidance, irritability, concentration challenges, pre-occupation, intrusive thoughts and much more!)
WHAT TRAUMA CAN REWIND BE USED FOR?
This approach can be used for any trauma, however there are two different categories which may slightly change the number of sessions and overall format of the work. These are:
Single Event Traumas - This is where there is one main one off event, i.e. Road Traffic Accidents, Attacks & Assaults, Fire or Loss. Treatment using RT in these instances is often implemented using two to three sessions followed by a follow up three months after the final treatment session
Multiple Event / Complex Traumas – Including but not limited to; combat/combat stress, sexual abuse and domestic violence, any trauma where there is more than one kind of event. When applying RT in such sessions each traumatic event can be dealt with separately, over separate sessions but, depending on the way the involuntary recall (symptoms) are represented, one session may be possible.
WHO COULD REWIND THERAPY BE HELPFUL FOR?
Direct victims of a trauma - where the trauma has happened to you as the first person
Witness of another person's trauma - where you have seen a traumatic event happen to another person
Emergency responders - Police, Ambulance, Fire - anyone who has attended a scene of a traumatic incident
Perpetrators / Instigators - where a person is responsible for (by accident or design) and involved in a traumatic event
