Victoria is also a fully qualified clinical supervisor to other professional therapists.
Victoria works with a range of presenting issues including, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, OCD, Phobia, Relationship issues, Bereavement and Trauma.
Victoria offers a warm, empathic and non-judgemental counselling relationship and is focused on helping her clients move forward and become more resourceful.
Working collaboratively, she will help you make sense of the emotional disruptions you are experiencing and help you regulate and find perspective, whether the issues are past experiences and traumas or current life challenges.
EMDR Therapy changes how stressful experiences and traumatic memories are held within the brain. This way of working lowers levels of distress caused by memories held in the brain in a raw emotional state, which often leave us with a sense of fear and anxiety that won’t go away, even though the experience is in the past. EMDR processes these memories, helping the client to move forward without constantly re-experiencing the emotional and physical symptoms of a past experience.
The benefits clients experience are:
- A greater feeling of regulation and calmness
- Feeling more confident that you will not be triggered
- Reduced anxiety and panic
- Feeling less hyper-vigilant
- Improved sleep
- Reduced flashbacks
- Feeling you can reconnect with your life
- Improved relationships
- Reduce the need for negative coping strategies
- Returning to work after stress related absence
Victoria offers face to face, telephone and online appointments.
