I am a BACP accredited counsellor and have been qualified for over 10 years. I have worked in various settlings including the NHS, IAPT service, charities and also private practice. My model is the person centred approach and I also trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) which is a very effective way of working with trauma. Any form of abuse can have a devasting impact on a person and being able to talk it through with a counsellor can be helpful in enabling the person to realise they are not to blame for another persons behaviour. EMDR can help to move on from painful memories and help a person gain control of their lives.
