About

Hello there. My name is Karl and I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile. If you're struggling with unhelpful or negative thoughts and emotions then I can appreciate how distressing this may be for you. I can help you manage these through the use of CBT & EMDR based techniques and strategies. In my practice I consider my clients to be a co-therapist and we will work together. CBT works by the theory that we can manage and modulate our emotions through evaluating/changing our cognitions & behaviours accordingly. EMDR utilises bilateral stimulation (eye movements) to aid the reprocessing of symptoms of Trauma and PTSD.
Within my practice I tend to utilise and incorporate a Self-Compassion and ACT (Acceptance and commitment therapy) focused approach. I have a great deal of experience in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Low Self-Esteem and am currently utilising my CBT and EMDR (eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) skills in my NHS mental health service
I know very well how hard it can be to take the first step in reaching out for support. I offer a very warm, confidential and non judgemental space for everyone I work with. I have a keen interest and experience in working with members of the LGBTQI community and I approach this by helping individuals explore & work through any shame and trauma experienced
