MY APPROACH

Discover the Power of EMDR at Intrepid Counselling

At Intrepid Counselling, I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), a powerful approach to psychotherapy designed to help individuals heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. I believe deeply in the capacity of the mind to recover from psychological trauma, just as the body recovers from physical trauma.

As a core component of my therapeutic approach at Intrepid Counselling, EMDR therapy has transformed many of my clients' lives. If you're ready to start your healing journey, I encourage you to reach out. Book a consultation with me today and take the first step towards a more peaceful and empowered life.

Renee absolutely changed my life

Renee absolutely changed my life. The EMDR therapy that I did with her was far beyond my expectations. I have felt like a completely new version of myself since ending therapy.

She provides a safe caring space for you

I was a highly anxious person who felt like her brain was constantly going round and round, on a merry go round and wasn't able to feel at peace within myself. I had been living in survival mode after many years of living with domestic violence.

Life counselling at Intrepid Counselling and Therapeutic Services is a form of therapeutic support I offer to help individuals navigate various life challenges, transitions, and personal growth goals. As a skilled counsellor, I assist clients in understanding their feelings, behaviours, and thoughts and in developing strategies to achieve a more satisfying life.

In a life counselling session at Intrepid Counselling, you can expect a safe, supportive, and confidential environment. During your initial sessions, I will work with you to understand your personal history, current issues, and future goals. Each session typically involves discussing your feelings, thoughts, and actions, exploring patterns, and identifying personal development and problem-solving strategies. The focus is always on empowering you to make positive changes and move forward.

My counselling approach at Intrepid is unique due to my incorporation of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). EMDR is a powerful psychotherapy technique that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. At Intrepid Counselling, I use EMDR not only for trauma resolution but also as a tool to help clients overcome anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties. This approach helps in changing the way memories are stored in the brain, reducing their lingering effects and enabling clients to develop healthier coping mechanisms.

Counselling sessions at Intrepid typically last between 50 to 60 minutes. The frequency and number of sessions depend on your unique needs and goals. Some clients find relief and achieve their counselling objectives in just a few sessions, while others may need a longer period to work through more complex issues.

No, counselling is not just for individuals with diagnosed mental health issues. At Intrepid Counselling, I believe that everyone can benefit from counselling as it promotes better self-awareness, emotional health, and personal growth. Whether you are facing a particular dilemma, need support during a challenging time, or simply want to improve your overall mental wellness, counselling can be beneficial.

If you feel overwhelmed, unhappy, unfulfilled, or struggling to cope with daily stresses or major life changes, counselling might be beneficial. Additionally, if you notice patterns in your behaviour or emotions that you would like to change but find difficult to address, seeking professional help can be a wise step forward. Remember, seeking counselling is a proactive step towards maintaining your mental health, much like visiting a doctor for physical health concerns.
