Derek, an accredited mental health social worker and qualified holistic counsellor and art therapist, has forged a career dedicated to a trauma-informed approach, prominently incorporating EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). His practice has evolved from a transpersonal and Jungian focus to a more nuanced understanding of trauma, reflecting a commitment to providing holistic care. Specializing in working with adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD-1), Asperger's, individuals dealing with alcohol and drug use, and members of the LGBTIQA+ and intersex community, Derek recognises the limitations of conventional talk therapy. In addition to art therapy, he has integrated EMDR (and the Flash Technique) as a crucial modality in his practice. Derek possesses the talent of guiding his clients through the challenges they face, helping them not only address current issues but also discover profound meaning in their lives. He has been told by many of his clients, that he radiates a grounding presence which allows them to feel safe, secure and seen. Just what you want in a great therapist. Derek's passion for dream work is a distinctive aspect of his therapeutic approach. He is deeply interested in exploring the unconscious through dreams and often incorporates dream analysis into his sessions. Recognising the powerful insights dreams can provide, he encourages clients to share their recent dreams as part of the therapeutic process. Beyond his professional pursuits, Derek's fascination with weather, particularly cirrus clouds, serves as a metaphor in his practice. Symbolizing impending change in weather, cirrus clouds align with Derek's signature tagline: "When cirrus clouds fill the sky, know that change is on the way." With an enduring commitment to supporting individuals on their journey towards wellness, Derek looks forward to assisting you in your path to healing. Read more
