Hello, my name is Dennise Rathbone and I’m an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, which basically means that I weave different approaches into my practice, such as working with creative materials, dreams or the sand tray. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and that at their core my clients’ inner-wisdom knows what is best for them. This has simply been obscured or constrained by their experiences, or burdens accrued during the course of their lives. Together we can explore, with a non-judgemental open curiosity, what these restrictions or self-limiting beliefs may be and how they operate, enabling more freedom of choice, allowing you to live life more fully.
In addition, I am a Certified Brainspotting practitioner. Discovered by David Grand and approved by the British Psychological Society. Brainspotting harnesses the body’s natural ability to scan itself and accurately pinpoint where our traumas are held in order to release them - both physical and emotional. It does this by bridging the connection between mind and body and accessing our emotional brain. This cutting-edge therapy truly is very powerful and seems to help those who are unable to move beyond their trauma or pain.
