What Is Emotional Abuse?
Who is Recovery For?
For many, the first, and 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’.
It is a common misconception that ‘weak’ people are targeted for abuse. It is often the reverse and nothing to do with the weakness of character, lack of intelligence or spirit.
My way of working is psychodynamic in nature and I work with emotions, thoughts and the body. This helps us find a deeper understanding of ourselves, including the aspects or hidden parts that we are not always conscious of.
As a survivor of CPTSD and emotional abuse, I understand how important it is to feel safe. 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.
“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!“
