Our Therapists are trained in a number of techniques including EMDR, CBT, person-centred therapy, hypnotherapy and couples counselling. Most work with an integrative approach meaning they can adapt their way of working to suit your needs.

When you choose to work with one of our therapists, they will send you a contract which outlines their terms including payment and cancellation fees. Each therapist who works with The Therapy Quarters has their own contract with differing terms specific to them. Once you have decided to work with one of the therapists they will make a copy of their contract available to you. If you would like to see this before deciding who to work with, please make contact with the therapist(s) you are interested in working with and they will provide this to you.

Please be aware, your contract is with the therapist you are working with, not with The Therapy Quarters.

Typically our therapists provide 50 minute sessions, usually once per week to allow you to build a working alliance with them. They are flexible on the number of sessions and how regularly you come along so just let them know what you need and they’ll go from there.

The Therapy Quarters also offers supervision to therapists both in training and in practice in line with the BACP requirements.

EMDR/Trauma Therapy

The mind and body can often heal itself naturally. Much of this natural process occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. In 1987 Francine Shapiro developed Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) utilising this natural process to successfully treat Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Now EMDR is being used to effectively treat a wide range of mental health problems including and not limited to anxiety and panic attacks, depression, stress. Phobia’s, sleep problems and complicated grief.

When something out of the ordinary happens in your life you can become traumatized by that event, your body and mind can feel and become overloaded. That overload can result in the disturbing experiences remaining frozen in the brain which means they are stored in an emotional state.

“When my eldest child was born I was so affected by the trauma around his birth that I was unable to leave the house and the world felt far too big and unsafe for me. I tried counselling but talking wasn’t enough and I was left with flashbacks and fear. I heard about EMDR and hoped that it would help me. I had a course of treatment and by the end I felt like me again. I went back to work and felt safe. It was life changing and I’ll be forever grateful” – Anon .

This part of the brain called the limbic system maintains the traumatic memory in an isolated memory network that is connected to emotions and physical sensations. These memories can be continually triggered when you experience events like them. Sometimes the memory itself can be forgotten but the feelings associated can still be triggered. EMDR helps to reconnect the brains memory enabling your brain to process the traumatic experience in a more natural way.

Eye movement or bilateral stimulation ( left and right movements) similar to REM sleep are used to desensitise the painful feelings and then become a neutral memory of an experience in the past.

We offer Hypnotherapy for weight management and phobias, please read on for more information…

Weight Loss with Hypnotherapy

Are you looking to lose weight without the need for surgery or extreme dieting? A hypno-gastric band may be for you.

A hypno-gastric band is a non-surgical technique used in hypnosis. It convinces your brain that you are full after you have eaten. It comprises of 4 sessions: the first 3 session are booked a week apart and a month later the fourth session makes the procedure complete.

The first session you will choose 3 alternative choices, for example, berries instead of chocolate. The first session also identifies any need to attend counselling prior to a hypno-gastric band being fitted to ensure a successful experience for the client and with the aim of addressing any un-resolved issues that may have caused your issue with food. If this is the case you are offered support in the form of alternative therapy such as counselling and then you can return when the issues have been dealt with.

The second session you will have your pre-op appointment, this is where you will see yourself arriving at the clinic, meet your surgeon and anaesthetist, and the procedure is explained.

The third session you will have your hypno-gastric band fitted.

The fourth session is a month later when you will have your band adjusted either tightened or loosened.


The Therapy Quarters also offers hypnosis sessions to help with sleep issues, relaxation and phobias. An example may be a phobia of needles preventing you from having certain vaccines…

A flying phobia limiting your choice of holiday, driving test phobia fearful of doing your driving test or a phobia of spiders affecting your life incredibly. Contact us to chat about how your phobia affects you.
