IN DUNDEE, ST ANDREWS
Relational, emotional and health-related difficulties can arise from adverse life experiences or trauma.
With the support of a psychotherapist you can work towards identifying the source of:
issues related to eating
relational difficulties and many others
It is by working at depth and carefully tracking what is happening in the body - along with the emerging emotions and thoughts - that we can address the 'stuckness' of their presence.

Following her studies in Psychology, Hannah held a number of research positions, working with charitable organisations and academic institutions on issues of mental health. This led to an interest in working therapeutically with trauma. She now works in private practice as a Psychotherapist.
Research suggests that the quality of the client-therapist relationship is key to client outcome.
Central to the Person-centred approach is an emphasis on 'being' versus 'doing'; offering acceptance, empathy and genuineness.
In addition, an invitation from the therapist to focus and stay with body sensations can help to deepen this therapeutic work. Studies have demonstrated the benefit of such body-based approaches.
Deep Brain Reorienting
Turning towards distressing thoughts, images and memories can lead to a range of body-based responses.
Tension may be one of these responses that can go unnoticed.
Deep Brain Reorienting invites clients to closely track the activation of movement impulses and emotions from this tension spot in order to avoid overwhelm and to facilitate processing.
Steeped in a neuroscientific perspective, DBR neatly matches the theoretical contributions to how trauma impacts on the brain at the deepest levels.
Comprehensive Resource Model
Additional resourcing may support trauma work.
The Comprehensive Resource Model establishes layers of internal resourcing through eye positioning, breath work, somatic awareness, connection with nature, bilateral music and more.
With these resources in place, clients may be increasingly able to access and process emotional material.
