Wendie Ralphs

I'm Wendie, an Accredited Counsellor and EMDR Practitioner

I've been helping people for over 20 years

Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me. I look forward to getting to know you during our work together.

I love nothing more, than helping people disconnect from self-doubt and grow self-worth, and stop feeling second best, so they can shine their light.

You and Me

People turn to me for many reasons.

You feel a failure, you don’t matter, yet you try so hard to please others. You want recognition, to feel valued, appreciated.  The truth is, you can have all of this, once you’re connected to who you really are. 

You’ve experienced a situation you feel is traumatic and perhaps you feel overwhelmed and lost.  You want to get back to your old self. Which is certainly possible and more.

Perhaps you’re someone who has experienced the death of someone, a partner, a friend, a child, a parent. You worry you will never feel better again.

You’re a therapist who wants to experience EMDR and inner child work, where I combine therapy, intuition and mediumship skills.

Everyone is very welcome, regardless of who you are, what job you do, you have value.

A little about me

My early years had its challenges, I felt different, unloved, unsupported and I didn’t believe I was good enough. To feel good, I sought others approval and helped others to feel ok. I didn’t do well at school, I learnt to be invisible to avoid being found out as stupid, which is what I believed, (turns out I’m dyslexic). Having left home at an impressionable age I came close to being homeless, penniless, and got into trouble with the law! I was going totally down a very dark and lonely path of life. I also had relationships that mirrored my low self-esteem. But it has been the sheer pain and trauma of losing my daughter, Alexx when she was 24 years old.  Alexx being my only child I’ve also experienced the loss of being a mum, being a grandparent being able to enjoy all the other milestones that come with having children.

Yet through the tears, the heartache, the heartbreak, and the darkness there has also been a great deal of healing and positivity. I have also grown in many ways because of my experience. I view life completely differently and I see a richness and appreciation I didn’t see before.  I’ve found inner strength and qualities I didn’t know I had. I am more relaxed and not haunted by my past. It’s fair to say that my own traumas, with its shades of darkness and light, has been difficult and yet transformational and shown me how to create a fulfilling life. So, I know how difficult it can be. I had to work very hard to find my way to a new life. And so will you. But you’ll have me in your corner, helping you find the way. Inside all of us we carry hurts, traumas, and unhelpful patterns. We need to learn from them and heal to be the difference. Through my experiences and healing I know who I am, I feel my worth and value. And it didn’t come from hearing it from others, but from seeing and knowing it within myself.
