Dr Monika Friedrich
EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner
m. 07890 556339
I trained as a counsellor in 1995 and gained a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2002. Whilst working in the NHS, I have undertaken additional training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and in supervision. I've had a private practice for over 14 years and have been working from my consulting room in Seaton, East Devon, but currently, due to corona virus, I'm only working by Skype, Zoom and FaceTime. I also work in the NHS as a Psychotherapist and Principal Clinical Psychologist. I'm a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society, a member of the Health & Care Professions Council and I'm an accredited member of the EMDR UK Association.
My fee for supervision and individual psychotherapy is £65 for a 50 minutes session, £70 for a 60 minute session and £100 for a 90 minute session.
I sometimes have spaces at a reduced fee for people on a low income.
Fees are paid per session or at the end of the month by bank transfer, cheque, PayPal or cash. The first assessment session is paid at the session.
If you cannot make your session time, we can normally offer an alternative time. If you don't attend or cancel with less than 48 hours notice, we will charge the full fee.
I provide the following services by Skype, Zoom or FaceTime worldwide.
This includes providing psychological therapies and also teaching relaxation techniques, stress management, mindfulness and visualisation. My long experience as an NHS Chartered Psychologist helps me work with a wide range of severity and type of difficulties.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
This is a comprehensive therapy which can help in the treatment of past or recent trauma and it can also help with a range of mental health difficulties.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy & Counselling
This is a method of therapy which leads to greater self understanding and emotional literacy. It involves talking about the person's life both past and present and about dreams and other aspects of the person's unconscious.
I provide clinical supervision for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists - both trainees and fully qualified therapists.
