Natalie Smith

 

I am currently offering counselling, CBT skills, EMDR, compassion focused, solution focused and other approaches as an integrated way of working. Using an integrative approach means I am able to adapt these approaches to provide sessions unique to you in order to assist you on your journey. For a further description of the approaches I work with, please see my website or my counselling directory.

 

In the first instance, I will use a person-centred approach to help you to discuss your issues so you are able to feel comfortable during our initial sessions. Once we have established your current issues and goals, we will discuss together how we feel I am able to help you. Focusing on a balance between listening and coping mechanisms can really help you to feel more balanced.

 

Special areas I work with include: trauma, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), weight management and childhood issues. Issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship/work issues and medically unexplained symptoms (fibromyalgia, migraine and chronic fatigue syndrome) are other areas I am competent in. Please feel free to give me a call if your current problem is not addressed here as there are also other areas which I work with.

 

I work with adults and children over the age of 12. I am also able to offer group work. I am registered with the BACP and EMDR Europe and follow their code of ethics.
