I tend to use a number of models of therapy all are underpinned by an internal control psychology focusing on the current issues and conflicts effecting your life which prompt you to seek help, rather than just on the issues that you have experienced in the past, and through therapy, to change any behaviours that are preventing you from finding solutions to these issues.
Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT)
IEMT is a form of therapy that has had dramatic positive results for people with traumatic life experiences. If you have had a trauma in your past and feel you can not get over, or that it stops you from moving forward, IEMT could help.
IEMT can be used content free - so you do not have to discuss what the trauma was if you feel you cannot talk about it (as long as you are aware of what the trauma was).
Sessions can be specifically for IEMT or offered as part of standard counselling sessions.
