Sessions may take place in the adjacent private woodland, in the garden, along local lanes and bridleways (‘Walk and Talk’), or in the more conventional setting within Thinking Space itself, as well as remotely using video conferencing or an online EMDR Therapy platform.
It’s not about ‘What’s wrong with you?’ it’s about ‘WHAT’S HAPPENED TO YOU?’ (Eleanor Longden, 2013)
Thinking Space offers…
…a range of trauma-based interventions, including Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, to help people of all ages cope with and recover from the impact of traumatic, distressing, and disturbing events, however large or small, and whenever they occurred. Therapy can be specially adapted to suit the needs of those experiencing dissociation (including complex dissociation such as DID), and those with neuro-developmental differences, such as autism, ADHD, tic disorders, sensory processing or learning difficulties.
Events that may appear small to adults can have a devastating impact on children, and those who experience any difference or disability are more likely to have experienced such events, especially in childhood. Even seemingly minor events, if they occur several times or over the course of time, can have long-lasting effects on adults as well as on children.
