A brief word about the practitioners who started the Centre

The Sheffield Trauma Centre was started in 2007 by Rashida Harries and Steve Williams, two experienced psychotherapists who originally trained at the Chiron Centre in Ealing, London.

We are both experienced in working in child and adult mental health, and have extensive experience working with both trauma related therapies EMDR, 3 phase trauma protocol, Lifespan Integration and attachment oriented therapies.

We remain the core of the Centre, but also have a range of associated therapists to whom we are able to refer clients if another therapy is more suitable.

Rashida Harries has been practicing for twenty five years, and her specialisation has always been trauma since initially training with Babette Rothschild in 1997/8. She is trained in EMDR and Lifespan Integration and currently works extensively with adults and children..
After many years working for a childrens' charity, Rashida has retained a special interest in Trauma and Attachment work with children, and has had extensive direct experience of working with abuse in families. She is also trained in, and able to offer:-
art therapy with children
play therapy
child psychotherapy
Video Interactive Guidance for parents and children
clinical supervision
administering and analysing Adult Attachment Interviews, trained by Pat Crittenden.

Steve Williams has a long standing interest in EMDR, Lifespan Integration and associated Trauma therapies, together with experience and specific interest in working with attachment disorders often diagnosed as 'personality disorders', and in working with dissociation.
He is a member of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation, and has completed the ISSTD Psychotherapy Training for the Dissociative Disorders, Standard and Advanced Courses.
