I am a Counselling Psychologist, EMDR Consultant and Supervisor and part of the lovely EMDR Focus Facilitator Team.

I am passionate about attachment-informed EMDR and use it in conjunction with Lifespan Integration, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and working with parts(Internal Family System-IFS) to inform my practice.

Over the last 16 years within the field of trauma, I have worked with several specialised trauma clinics, addiction services in both the public and private sector, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and with the Yezidi population in an IDP camp in Kurdistan, Iraq.

Lorraine Bygrave

I am currently available for referrals:yes

I am an Accredited Integrative psychotherapist and EMDR Practitioner and director of Benfleet Counselling and Psychotherapy Ltd.

Working as a therapist is not only a profession for me, it is also a passion, which the spark I found in helping people is continually fuelled by the belief that everyone deserves to live their best life.

Connecting with people and assisting on the journey which helps to uncover their real self is a process which I look forward to with all of my clients.

Negative behaviour is one of the foremost indications that people are suffering inside, and without judgement I collaborate with my clients to piece together the puzzles, so we can change this.

I completed Laurel Parnell’s Attachment Focussed Therapy workshop in 2017. I have also attended Mark Brayne’s Unleash the Magic’s Attachment Informed workshops which have helped to completely transform my practice.

I have also received training in pain control with Mark Grant and I am trained in R-TEP and G-TEP by Elan Shapiro.

In addition to this I have received training in The Feeling-State Addiction protocol with Robert Miller PhD and have learnt how to use the Flash Technique with Philip Manfield.

I remain committed to developing and expanding my knowledge through continually training. This ensures that I remain up to date with innovative therapy techniques, so that I can offer a service which tailors around ongoing developments in psychotherapy. As such, this enables me to deliver ground-breaking therapy which will have long lasting results on the lives of my clients.

Living with good mental health is fundamental to our wellbeing and can have an unprecedented impact on physical health, family life, work life, and relationships. Learning how to manage stress and anxiety, as well as processing trauma are crucial steps in moving towards the life that we want to live.

Drawing on various personal experiences enables me to offer a comforting level of empathy and understanding, which helps develop a trusting and safe environment for my clients. I believe that helping people to become more self-aware, nurtures life skills which they can carry through future difficult situations that they may find themselves in.

Life is a journey, it may take many attempts to get it right, but you can never stop learning and growing as a person. Helping clients process negative beliefs about themselves by turning them into positive ones is very rewarding.

Seeing progress from being depressed, anxious and fearful to being reinvigorated with a new zest for life is a reward greater than words can describe. I have learnt a great deal from the clients I have helped, whether they have been children, young people or adults.

During the lockdown I switched my therapy services to online. Online therapy has proven highly effective, and it gives clients the emotional support and help in a manner which was safe in this pandemic. Working online enables me to connect with people from all over the UK and, even throughout the world. I have found EMDR therapy to be very effective and powerful online.

I feel very privileged to have found a career as fulfilling and rewarding as this one, and that so many people let me help them with their journeys.

Lucinda Gordon Lennox

I am currently available for referrals:Yes

I have been working with AI-EMDR for four years.

Clients arrive with a range of presenting issues, from traumas that have left classic PTSD, through to anxiety, addiction recovery, low self esteem, feeling stuck, tired of talk therapy and wanting to see emotional shifts, smoking cessation, triggering in relationships, divorce, parenting, and more.

AI-EMDR works to shift our maladaptive behaviours, moods and beliefs into positive outlooks on self and life, often creating great shifts and doorways into awakenings and profound Internal transformations as our organic mind/body healing mechanism is activated from the inside.

Please see my website and Instagram @lucindagordonlennox for more information and writing on the subject of trauma, transformation and personal growth.

Mary Clare de Echevarria

I am currently available for referrals:Yes

EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner
Founder and trainer, Healing Complex Trauma Ltd
UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist, Recognised Supervisor and Recognised Training Supervisor

My approach to therapy is very practical: I think that it should free you from ‘symptoms’ and distress, and also enable you to do things that you couldn’t do before, to feel real happiness, to have warm, supportive relationships (if you don’t already) and a fulfilling life.

My work is based on Attachment-Focused EMDR and also draws on the progressive approach to EMDR, relational psychotherapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, ego state therapy, work with parts, the Structural Dissociation Model, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, yoga therapy and transpersonal psychotherapy (and I also teach courses on how to recognise and work with complex trauma and dissociation, integrating all these modalities).

You are welcome to visit my website and contact me for more information.
