I had the good fortune to be recommended to try Utopia Psychological Services by a family friend. I was suffering from depression and work related stress and the occupational health service stated I needed a specific form of therapy called EMDR.

Within a week of making contact I had my first appointment. I came away understanding that I had found a safe space and relationship to do the work that needed to be done. I don’t remember the particulars of those early sessions, except for lots of tears, and a steady supply of tissues.

When we got to the stage of doing EMDR therapy I felt able to fully trust the process, and give it my all. It was a revelation, and very very healing. I had deliberately not researched the process as I wanted to let the process work for me without intellectual defenses. It was brilliant, and I will be eternally grateful that I was recommended to Utopia.
