What Is Emotional Abuse?
Who is Recovery For?
For many, the first, and most challenging step, is to acknowledge that something is wrong.
Often the word ‘abuse’ is too shameful to admit, or is something that only happens to ‘other people’.
Some signs of emotional abuse are name calling, insulting, highly critical behaviour along with manipulation of your emotions, alienation from friends and family and distorting reality (gaslighting). For more information see my free download below.
As much emotional abuse is hidden, confusing or never reported it is difficult to guage exact figures. However, each year, nearly 2 million people in the UK suffer some form of domestic abuse. That is 1.3 million female victims (8.2% of the population) and 600,000 male victims.
It is a common misconception that ‘weak’ people are targeted for abuse. It is often the reverse. It has nothing to do with the weakness of character, lack of intelligence or spirit. However, the effects of this abuse can be devastating. For more information about recovery click HERE
In the UK, on average victims experience 50 incidents of abuse before getting effective help.
I came across Kate through a friend’s recommendation. I was looking for someone who could help me with my Ptsd. I had heard about TRE in a book I was reading and how it worked by releasing trauma through the body by shaking. I found Kate to be very friendly and felt very at ease with her. She totally understood my PTSD symptoms and worked with me through Trauma releasing exercises which were very simple to follow. At the end of my first appointment with Kate, my body released quite a build-up of trauma and the most noticeable part for me was that I felt I could breathe normally again, and still can a few months later.
I visited Kate a few more times, not just for TRE work but also for EFT. Kate has a very gentle approach and I didn’t feel pressured at any time for having to say anything I didn’t want to. She worked with me at my pace and we stopped if I needed to. Everything was about ‘me’ and not what suited her.
Kate has helped me feel a lot better about myself both physically and mentally. I would definitely encourage someone, who, like myself, has been through a lot of trauma in their life to make an appointment for either Tre work or EFT or both! Kate listens really well to what ‘you’ want to improve on and works with you to overcome the obstacles that you are facing.
My way of working is psychodynamic in nature and I work with emotions, thoughts and neurophysical body responses. This helps us find a deeper understanding of ourselves, including the aspects or hidden parts that we are not always conscious of.
From safety, we can move on to find peace. I hope to guide all my clients to find new ways to move on with the physical and emotional release.
I am available for consultations at London, Harley Street and my home clinic in Kent. I also offer sessions online.
“At the end of my first appointment with Kate, my body released quite a build-up of trauma and the most noticeable part for me was that I felt I could breathe normally again, and still can a few months later. My body felt very rested afterwards and this enabled me to have a good night’s sleep, my body felt as if something huge had been lifted away from me.”
“To be honest, when Kate asked me what I hoped to get out of our sessions together, I felt sceptical that I would achieve my aim of feeling more positive about the difficulties I had encountered. However after just one session I started to feel better, and by the penultimate session I felt like I had completely resolved my issue..”
“Absolutely fantastic session with Kate this evening! It was my first TRE session and I really didn’t know what to expect. I actually had a really strong response and was initially quite startled at the way my body was reacting when I first started shaking but Kate was extremely reassuring and calm and made me feel really safe! I am now bouncing off the walls with energy and my body feels amazing!“
