Allene Hatherell is a highly experienced Accred. CBT, ADHD & EMDR Psychotherapist. 

With over 25 years working as a therapist in both in the UK and internationally, and my knowledge as a general nurse and midwife (retired) I bring a wealth of experience, flexibility and knowledge to work with my clients. I trained as an Integrative Counsellor and then qualified as a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT). Currently I am completing my work in Psychoanalytical Jungian Sandplay. (which takes about 8 years!) I am also an EMDR practitioner and work integrativly with my clients, using the therapeutic tools and strategies that work best for their needs.

I work with a wide range of mental health disorders but have a particular interest, expertise and knowledge in those who experience difficulties due to their neuro-divergency.  I believe my experience as a retired  general nurse and midwife gives depth to my practice. I have  worked extensively in areas of trauma and in addressing extremely sensitive issues such as addictions, depression, anxiety, PTSD, rape and sexual abuse, and in living with personality disorders. I am a friendly and appropriately humorous therapist, which leads to strong productive therapeutic bonds with my clients. This also contributes in creating a safe, trusting and often fun and encouraging environment for change and optimism.  I recognise  that 'one size' does not necessarily 'fit all'. All clients are unique individuals and the therapy applied in my sessions is tailor- made to suit what brings clients to these sessions in the first place, and the aim is we work collaboratively and safely together.
