Therese TaylorIntegrative psychotherapist
Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, struggling to cope?
Do you find yourself avoiding people, places or activities you used to do or enjoy? Perhaps you are having difficulty functioning at work or home?
You may not even remember or know what caused this change in your life however you know you want things to change for the better. You are not alone, I’m here to support and help you.
If you want to speak to a non-judgemental empathetic therapeutic counsellor then give me a call?
I’m Therese, an integrative relational therapist. The heart of my approach is to develop a strong, non-judgemental, therapeutic relationship with you to enable your personal growth and positive change.
I use a variety of tools and evidenced based techniques that will support you to understanding yourself, the issues impacting your life today; and how you can get to living your life the way you want and deserve.
I work in collaboration with you – your goals are my goals - we will be on this journey together.
As every client is different, to ensure you receive the most appropriate, cost effective and ethical therapeutic treatment I can offer, I’ll undertake an assessment with you to get a baseline measure of where you are now, to determine and discuss the most appropriate therapy options with you.
If your assessment suggests you have PTSD or complex PTSD, I will use trauma-focused therapy that meets NICE* guidelines for working with trauma. Therapy will include psychoeducation about reactions to trauma; strategies to manage arousal and flashbacks; safety planning; help to overcome avoidance and re-establishing adaptive functioning for your work and social life. With trauma therapy the number of sessions will be determined by your personal circumstances and the severity of your symptoms.
I provide short and long-term therapy for adults and young people either online by telephone, Zoom, WhatsApp or face-to-face in Feltham, Richmond, Twickenham, Teddington, Kingston and surrounding areas.
