Hello and welcome. My name is Dr Lara Akers-Douglas, a Clinical Psychologist who works between the Isle of Wight and Southampton, as well as virtually online. Have you experienced events that continue to have unwanted repercussions throughout your life? My passion lies in helping people who have experienced trauma on their journey towards recovery. With a deep understanding of the profound impact trauma can have on mental and emotional well-being, I can provide expert guidance and support to older teenagers and adults, and help you on your path to recovery.
I've received extensive training in trauma-focused therapies (EMDR, CBT, ACT) and had the privilege of working with a diverse range of people, including those who've experienced trauma from childhood abuse, combat, domestic violence, front-line roles, and pre/postnatal events. I've worked in various settings, privately and publicly, in the UK and abroad.
Healing from trauma is a highly individualized process, so I tailor therapy to meet each client's unique needs. Clients can explore their experiences, build resilience, and develop coping strategies that empower them to move forward with strength and confidence.

EMDR therapy is a powerful tool for trauma recovery. It helps by reprocessing distressing memories, making them less emotionally overwhelming. This fosters healthier emotional responses, leading to improved well-being and emotional resilience.
