Hi, my name’s Ed, I’m a Therapist working in Twickenham, West London, I work with people experiencing a wide range of difficulties from many different backgrounds, everyone’s story and reason for coming to therapy are different but all are equal.
I offer both long and short term individual therapy, generally the length of therapy is something that we would discuss in our first session. In the case of longer term therapy we would frequently review as the therapy progresses to consider what work remains and when might it be appropriate to conclude therapy.
The model of therapy that I offer draws primarily on psychodynamic and person-centred theory, focusing on the therapeutic relationship while we work together. I also have knowledge of CBT and Mindfulness and may draw on these should they be relevant to our work together.
Dependent on the reasons you have come to therapy I can incorporate Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) if we both feel this would be of benefit. This is particularly useful when working with someone who has experienced trauma and may have difficulty speaking about what has happened because it causes them to have flashbacks or to become overwhelmed. EMDR is a way of reducing the intensity of flashbacks and the emotions associated with traumatic memories, it works by helping someone process what has happened to them.
What to expect in the first session?
The initial session, is slightly different from subsequent sessions because it involves some degree of assessment. It is a time for us to discuss your current difficulties and try to build a picture of what has brought you to therapy, during this session I will ask a range of questions to assess if therapy is currently the best option for you and how we might proceed should you feel that we are a good fit.
I currently have very limited availability in Twickenham on a Friday Afternoon.
