About Me

Shirley Johnson

M.A. M.Sc. (Int Psych), Dip Int Psych.
UKCP Registered psychotherapist.
EMDR Therapist

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with many years experience of working with individuals and couples. My Private Practice is based at Room 33, Pure Offices, Brooks Drive, Cheadle Royal Business Park, SK8 3TD.

I work with a wide range of personal distress including relationship difficulties, depression, childhood trauma, work stress, low self esteem, eating disorders, anger management and difficulties following upsetting life events or accidents.

I also have special expertise in treating anxiety, whether this be in the form of specific fears and phobias, or more generalised worry about managing your life at home or at work.

My training is Integrative and I draw on many theoretical frameworks and methods in my work, chosen to suit both the person and the problems they want to work on.

I am also fully trained and experienced as an EMDR therapist (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), and am accredited as an EMDR Europe Approved Practitioner. EMDR is a fast and effective treatment recommended by NICE ( National Institute for Clinical Excellence) to enable your brain to process distressing emotion so that you can think more calmly and clearly. It was originally developed to treat Post Traumatic Stress and is now successfully used for anxiety, panic, exam or performance nerves, social anxiety and chronic pain.

You are welcome to call 07813 077915 or email me to find out more about psychotherapy or EMDR and discuss how I may be able to help.
