UTILISING EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE AND A TRAUMA-INFORMED APPROACH AT ALL TIMES
The reality is, anyone who has a diagnosed mental illness has suffered some trauma during their lives. Many of us do not think of ourselves as falling into such a category, comparing our own life experiences with those whom we feel "had it tougher". In actual fact, any significantly distressing experience we have suffered represents trauma for us as individuals. Not everybody suffers the same level of distress from the same experience. This is no way suggests a weakness, but is to demonstrate the complexity of the human condition, and the differing levels of sensitivity we have as individuals to varying situations.
I utilise a trauma-informed approach to all of my clients, and have also recently been upping my skills by learning and developing my practice by using Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I intend to attain my accreditation with the EMDRAA by 2020. Contact me to find out more how I can help you, and if this approach would assist in your recovery and symptom management.
