We’re Here To Help You Heal
Everyone at The Cotswold Centre For Trauma Healing cares deeply about providing a welcoming, friendly environment where clients can feel comfortable, secure and empowered to embark on positive change in their lives.
Clinical Director and founder Dr Claudia Herbert has over two decades experience of running a private psychology service and heads a highly experienced team of people who believe in treating each client as a valued individual. With a wealth of clinical experience, our consultants do not rely on standard treatment formulae. We draw on a wide range of knowledge including the latest, research-based developments in psychotherapy and body-focused therapies. This enables us to tailor an individual package of care – often combining elements of several different therapeutic approaches – to suit each of our clients’ specific needs.

“My work as a psychotherapist is very important to me and I am deeply committed and devoted to it. I believe it is an honour to connect with my clients, to be present with them, help educate, guide, process and empower them to live the healthiest lives possible.
My work as a psychotherapist is based in honouring and deeply respecting each individual and where they are in their lives.”

“I work from within a relational approach, which places a relationship of trust, presence, non-judgmental and open dialogue and confidentiality at the basis of the work between client and therapist. My work places the client and their experience at the centre of the work. I base my work on deep empathy for others and on conscious attunement with my client.
It is my experience that within a trusted and holding therapeutic relationship previous attachment-based trauma can be re-patterned, survival-based fear structures can be transformed and new healthier ways of being can be experienced and embedded in life. This leads to a reduction in distressing symptoms, an increase in self-regulation and overall improvement in health, functioning and well-being.”
