Recover from sexual assault

Generally memories from a long time ago are pretty vague but if you’ve been sexually assaulted you can be haunted by vivid flashes of memory and strong physical responses which are triggered by seemingly random things. You may not even be aware of this happening but just know that you feel unbearably panicky and frightened and that it's getting in the way of you living your life the way you'd like to.

I know it can feel overwhelming to even think about what's happened to you, but if you're ready to, you really can find some peace and stop having to use all that mental and emotional energy to manage your distress. I use a highly effective, neuroscience based process called AMDR ( Applied Memory Desensitisation and Reintegration) combined with Cognitive Hypnotherapy to resolve trauma. It works in such a way that you don't need to relive the whole experience, or talk about it endlessly, and it helps the brain reprocess what happened and store it in a way that no longer troubles you. 

 

How many sessions will I need?

The exact number differs for each person depending on what you'd like to achieve and how ready you are to change. I work with people for a minimum of three sessions. Many people achieve the positive change they're looking for quite quickly and some  prefer to continue working over a longer period of time. We can discuss what works for you. Sessions take place either at my Brighton office or by Zoom.

 

How much will it cost?

Three initial sessions cost £250. This includes a first appointment of up to one and a half hours, two subsequent sessions of up to an hour and a bespoke MP3 hypnotic recording to embed the change. You can pay in installments if you would like. Follow on appointments are £75.
