ASSIST trained: 2017, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is an intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize and review risk, and intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. It is by far the most widely used, acclaimed and researched suicide intervention training workshop in the world.
EMDR is an acronym for ‘Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing’. EMDR is a powerful psychological treatment method that was developed by an American clinical psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro, in the 1980s.
When disturbing experiences happen, they are stored in the brain with all the sights, sounds, thoughts and feelings that accompany it. When a person is very upset, the brain seems to be unable to process the experience as it would normally. EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following successful EMDR sessions, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings in the same way when the event is brought to mind. You still remember what happened, but it is less upsetting. Many types of therapy have similar goals. However, EMDR appears to be similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Therefore, EMDR can be thought of as a physiologically based therapy that helps a person see disturbing material in a new and less distressing way.

Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy deals with all issues regarding sex, sexuality and human relationships. It is talk therapy. PSRT treatment by a qualified practitioner addresses a sexual dysfunction or emotional block within a relationship or with an individual. Psychosexual Therapy has a proven success rate and takes referrals from Urologists, Gynecologists, GPs, Counsellors, Psychotherapists or similar professionals to look at physiological and psychological problems which are causing distress. However, you do not need to be referred by another health professional, you can contact me directly during office hours.
