How I Work
This first session aims to identify factors contributing towards current difficulties. In consultation with you, a plan is devised for an individually tailored therapeutic intervention.
I work in a non-directive manner, providing a supportive, empathic, respectful, challenging and non-judgemental place. Sessions can be limited in number or take place over a longer term according to your goals. Most clients see me every week.
I am dedicated to incorporating anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory principles into my practice, aligning with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. In my work, I infuse enthusiasm, commitment, and a sense of humour, acknowledging that therapy is not only challenging but also has the potential to be invigorating.
Traumatic events can result in us feeling shocked, confused, and distressed. Common responses may involve feelings of overwhelm, guilt, shame, anxiety, sadness, anger, emotional detachment, as well as experiencing physical reactions such as tiredness, problems concentrating, shallow breathing, and nausea. Helping clients heal from trauma is challenging when they are missing one key experience – a stable, secure relationship. This lack of a steady, caring attachment relationship can make it more difficult to regulate emotions or build a trusting bond. As a trauma informed therapist Dr Liddy Carver is interested in the neuroscience behind trauma and attachment relationships, and how trauma can make clients more vulnerable to stress responses. Building a secure attunement helps clients co-regulate and feel safe with another person, draw out their strengths and coping skills, mindfully help them manage physical and emotional pain and reignite their hope for the future.
I am happy to discuss your training needs. I charge £400 for a day of training and £200 for half a day.
