  • Coming to see me
    may not have experienced satisfactory therapy in the past I believe that for a successful outcome you must be comfortable with me and my approach to therapy During the first session we will Discuss the difficulties you are experiencing and the reasons for seeking therapy Briefly explore any relevant background such as childhood experiences previous traumas and losses and any physical or psychological illnesses Then decide whether therapy is likely to help and if so agree some goals Therapy outdoors I believe that the natural world is very important for our sense of well being I therefore also offer therapy and supervision outdoors in natural settings such as woodland and parkland This can be discussed during our first meeting to establish your needs and what would be most appropriate and helpful What happens next We will aim to meet weekly for 50 minute sessions However if this is not possible we can discuss alternative arrangements I will also review progress with you on a regular basis How much therapy will I need This depends on what the issues are For some clients a short and focussed approach of 8 10 weeks is enough to help them deal with a specific problem For others a longer period of time is necessary to help them fully explore their history and their current life difficulties Many clients feel satisfied and able to move on after 10 18 months A few clients find it helpful to stay in therapy for longer especially if they are dealing with a particularly traumatic event How much does it cost My fees are as follows Individuals 45 per session Couples 60 per session Supervision for trainees and qualified therapists 45 per session I have some concessionary places available for those on low incomes Payment is due at the

  • About Trudi
    Ecopsychology Training I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and have worked with clients suffering from depression anxiety panic disorder relationship difficulties bereavement stress I also work with clients wishing to undertake personal growth and development My approach My approach is Humanistic and Integrative What does this mean I believe that as human beings we are all capable of making choices creating meaning in our lives and embracing our full potential Rather than seeing you as ill or flawed I will see you as a human being who has become stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking feeling or behaving Your choices may no longer be clear to you your life may have lost meaning and you may not feel that you are achieving your potential in life This can lead to symptoms of depression anxiety stress and frustration I offer a non judgmental and honest therapeutic relationship providing a careful balance of support and challenge to enable you to explore your difficulties My aim is not just symptom relief but a deeper personal transformation Areas of interest Ecopsychology A new field within psychotherapy ecopsychology recognises the alienation that many of us feel as a result of being disconnected from the natural world It is this disconnection which allows us to continue to destroy our planet whilst at the same time engaging in ultimately dissatisfying behaviours This dissatisfaction and alienation can then lead to depression emptiness and other psychological symptoms Working in an ecopsychology mindful way I am open to listening for signs that such a process may be at work within my clients Creative writing I am also interested in creative writing and poetry in particular as a means of expressing feelings and processing our experiences Career background Before training as a psychotherapist I worked for many years in a

    situations are potentially dangerous or risky When we anticipate such situations arising in the future we experience anxiety For example if we were once involved in a car accident on an icy road we may experience anxiety whenever we have to drive on icy roads in the future We learn that this is a potentially dangerous situation and so our bodies are programmed to be hypervigilant Like fear anxiety is a healthy reaction Problematic anxiety If you are suffering from problematic anxiety you are experiencing the same fight or flight response as described above but for you these thoughts feelings and physical symptoms are triggered even when there is no obvious sign of danger or they are far in excess of what others experience in the same situation The anxiety can be a general feeling that is with you often or it can be triggered by specific situations such as driving or being in public spaces In this case your body is experiencing a false alarm You are likely to be over estimating the risks and so your body is unnecessarily on standby for possible danger The feelings may come out of the blue they may even wake you up at night You may spend hours thinking about and fearing the feelings and this may prevent you from doing important activities in your life Useful Links BACP The British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy Professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK includes a directory of therapists Dartmoor Centre for Counselling Psychotherapy Also location of where Trudi is currently based for private clients and supervision For more details about the Centre s counselling training and personal development click here Ecopsychology UK If you are looking for any sort of Ecopsychology input a therapist a workshop a speaker someone to interview
