Meet Cristalle Hayes,
Cristalle Hayes uses various techniques, including psychotherapy, EMDR, grounding and self-care practices, to help her clients heal from trauma caused by childhood abuse, domestic abuse and narcissistic abuse.
Psychotherapy and self-care practices can profoundly impact our emotional and psychological well-being, helping us feel more grounded, resilient, and confident.
Psychotherapy and EMDR can help you lead a more fulfilling life and improve your relationships with others.
Psychotherapy and EMDR can integrate trauma and release hostile and abusive messages we have absorbed that are untrue about ourselves today.
What is EMDR?
EMDR is a trauma-informed psychotherapy that helps you process and recover from past experiences affecting your mental health and well-being. EMDR draws upon the body’s natural information processing system, which can become stuck when overwhelmed during a traumatic experience. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation (butterfly taps, eye movements, and bilateral beats) to kickstart our natural processing of memories. Traumatic memories stay in the past and stop impacting the present and future.
Cristalle’s job as your therapist is to enable healing from the pain and suffering of trauma and difficult life experiences.
Healing from abuse will empower you to trust your thoughts, feelings, and perceptions again. Becoming more self-aware and emotionally intelligent will also follow. Healing from trauma makes it easier to make decisions, set boundaries, communicate, take risks and be more discerning about what you will allow in your life.
Psychotherapy is a great act of self-care—a gift to yourself.
Self-care is liberating when we put our own needs first.
Cristalle encourages self-care and grounding techniques whilst you are in therapy.
Cristalle believes in taking your perspectives and pain seriously without blame or invalidation but with a gentle challenge to consider your worldview, relationships and beliefs from a different perspective.
Cristalle hopes that together, we can seek new understandings of ourselves, our relationships and our emotions.
Cristalle doesn’t believe anyone other than yourself can be an authority on how to live your life.
But with compassionate reflection and an unbiased perspective, you can start making different choices that serve you better.
