One to One Counselling and Psychotherapy For Adults
Clients come to the practice for many reasons and with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships under strain or breaking down, bereavement, bullying, work related stress, trauma and abuse. We support the client in resolving the difficulties which are holding them back from living a positive, fulfilling life.
Couples can experience a range of relationship difficulties, including communication issues, loss of intimacy, the impact of infidelity, becoming parents, sexual dysfunction and bereavement. Working with couples is a specialist skill, requiring therapists to undertake in depth additional training. The West Street Counselling Centre has a large team of experienced couple therapists.
EMDR ( Eye Movement Desenstitation Reprocessing)
Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing is a powerful psychological treatment method, developed by an American Clinical Psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro, in the 1980s. Traumatic memory can remain unprocessed in the brain, causing the person to re-experience distressing events, as if they were occurring in the here and now. EMDR can facilitate the processing of this trauma memory, by using bi-lateral stimulation, similar to that experienced naturally during the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of the sleep cycle. EMDR is a very well researched therapy and can be used successfully to treat many presenting issues, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex PTSD (C-PTSD), Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Addiction and Low Self Esteem. There are currently seven EMDR trained therapists at the practice and more information about EMDR can be found at EMDR Association UK

Clinical Supervision is an ethical requirement for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, to ensure ethical standards of practice are maintained and for professional development. Several members of the team are trained to offer this service.
