About Me

LORETTA WATT MSc

GESTALT AND EMDR PSYCHOTHERAPIST

(UKCP & BACP REG)

 

 

There are times in most peoples lives when we need or could benefit from talking to someone. I offer you an opportunity to explore your concerns in an atmosphere of trust. This will enable you to find your own answers and way forward, at your own pace. All dialogue is treated in the strictest of confidence, working in accordance with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute (GPTI).

 

I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist / counsellor and counselling supervisor. I have worked in Private Practice for 18 years and within the NHS for 14 years. I work individually and in groups with various people from all walks of life, with different emotional needs and issues.

NOBODY, AS LONG AS HE MOVES ABOUT AMONG THE CHAOTIC CURRENTS OF LIFE, IS WITHOUT TROUBLE - Carl Jung

I work with a wide range of problems and concerns including, depression, anxiety, stress, drug and alcohol problems, bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties and childhood issues. In addition, I have specialist training and expertise in the areas of trauma and post traumatic stress disorder. I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) accredited therapist and a member of the EMDR Association of UK and Ireland.

 

I offer Supervision to trainees and qualified therapists and in turn meet monthly with a supervisor to discuss aspects of my work. My passion and commitment to my professional development is an ongoing journey. I continue to attend various training events throughout the year to keep up to date with current practice.

 

I have indemnity insurance cover and as a professional I am DBS checked.
