Serious abuse, whether an individual event or long term emotional, physical or sexual abuse, can cause Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, (PTSD).

We regularly work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, offering psychotherapy for long term abuse, or EMDR or Lifespan Integration for shorter term, one off episodes. When safe, and with the agreement of the client, we cancombine these approaches.

We work gently, at the client's pace. While we are happy to be contacted by insurance companies, don't bother to contact us if you want abuse work done in a hurry. Abused clients have serious difficulties with trust, (of course - think about it), and this work takes time.

We can offer trauma and abuse therapy with a male or female therapist.
