Flora Saxby Psychotherapy in Hammersmith, West London

A safe place....to be accepted and accept yourself

When a client comes to see me, I seek to provide a space whereby they can express whatever they are feeling in an environment of acceptance. I believe that through the safe, trusting relationship with the counsellor, healing can come as we understand, learn and practice a different, kinder, way of connecting to ourselves and others. I think that many people struggle to freely be themselves and this journey to self-acceptance is made easier through being accepted by someone else.

I seek to provide a practice that is inclusive for anyone regardless of ethnicity, background, gender, religion or sexual orientation. I would like to understand life from your perspective as best I can, acknowledging that I bring my perspective into the relationship.


As an integrative practitioner I draw from a variety of different theories and techniques in my work and I am happy to discuss and explain these.

I mainly use a combination of Attachment informed EMDR (https://emdrfocus.com/) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) (https://ifs-institute.com/ )

I have completed training to combine these two ways of working by Dr Annabel McGoldrick (https://emdrinsight.com/)

I have an Integrative Relational Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy (MA) from Roehampton University which included training in Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I am an Accredited EMDR practitioner with EMDR Europe and I use and demonstrate other techniques which help to calm the nervous system including mindfulness and EFT tapping.

I have gained significant benefit from my own personal therapy and EMDR/IFS, and receive regular supervision, as well as continuing with regular CPD.

As an Accredited member of the BACP, I work confidentially, abiding by their code of conduct and guidelines.

I also have a Nursing degree (Bsc HONS from Kings College London) and practiced as a Nurse for over 20 years, working in busy London hospitals in surgical and gynaecology wards and an emergency gynaecology and pregnancy outpatients department. I have supported many people experiencing both a physical and emotional trauma. I draw on this experience in my counselling work.
