EMDR therapy

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing

EMDR is a powerful psychological treatment method that was developed by a clinical psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro. It is a psychotherapy that helps you to process and recover from past experiences that may be affecting your mental health and well-being long after the events themselves.

It involves using bilateral stimulation, usually side to side eye movements, combined with talk therapy in a specific and structured format.

EMDR helps process negative images, emotions, beliefs and body sensations which are linked to traumatic memories that seem to be stuck. It helps you see things from a different perspective and kick-starts your natural healing processes again.

It was developed to help those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and research has since shown that the application for this therapy is far wider than just trauma work. It can help with all mental health issues including psychosis and personality disorders as many of these issues are rooted in some kind of trauma.

On-line or in-person sessions available.

Caspian Horse Assisted Psychotherapy - Lasham

Eagala model - Eagala is a revolutionary mental health treatment model incorporating horses who are highly attuned and offer a safe space for clients to discover their answers within themselves.

Caspian Horse Assisted Therapy offers a treatment modality called Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) which is an experiential form of psychotherapy where horses are involved in the sessions. "Experiential" means that you will be involved in hands-on experiences with the horses designed to reflect things going on in your life. The process is not always about interacting with the treatment team, although that will happen at times. It is about giving you the opportunity to experience, explore, problem-solve, discover, be creative, gain insight and experience practical applications of what you are learning in the moment. The process is about "doing" along with the "talking." Widely used in America this therapy is a collaboration between the client, therapist, an equine specialist and, most importantly, the horse or horses.

One-to-one and group sessions available.

'It's not overstating to say that Sandy has absolutely changed my life for the better! I was suffering with a number of issues that I recognise as trauma from the past that I had swept under the carpet for decades. Sandy helped me through a journey to where I am; felling very comfortable in my own skin and excited about the adventure of life in a new way. I can't thank her enough for working with me,'
