Psychologist specialising in therapy for Children and Adolescents in Surrey and providing EMDR for Adults and Adolescents
Welcome and thank you for choosing to visit our website.
NuStart Therapeutic Services is a provider of psychological and therapeutic services within Woking, Guildford and the surrounding areas of Surrey.
We understand that thinking about accessing therapy for yourself, your child or your adolescent can be a challenging and stressful process. We are passionate about offering a safe and non-judgemental space in which difficulties and experiences can be explored sensitively with an experienced and trained therapist/psychologist. We are flexible in our approach and we work holistically and creatively. At our initial meeting, we will discuss the difficulties that you are seeking help with for yourself, your child or adolescent and you will discuss what your goals are with respect to therapy. In collaboration with your therapist we will then decide upon the approach that will be most suitable to adopt. Our ultimate aim is to improve your mental health and sense of wellbeing.
In therapy the difficulties that we currently work with include:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Mood difficulties (e.g. depression)
Anxiety disorders (e.g. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD); social anxiety)
Emotional and behavioural self-regulation difficulties (e.g. aggression; conduct problems; anxiety; social withdrawal)
Harmful sexual behaviour
Working with children and adolescents who are considered ‘at risk of’ or who are involved in the criminal justice system
The main models that we use in therapy are Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR); Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) and interventions based on Theraplay® principles.
We specialise in providing psychological services and therapy to children, adolescents and their families. In particular for those who are experiencing the effects of early trauma and attachment difficulties and are displaying associated behavioural difficulties.
