PTSD Specialists & Trauma Release Therapists

Purple Octopus Management Ltd

About our practice

The team at Purple Octopus are all mental health professionals providing support and a therapeutic approach using treatment pathways which include clinical hypnosis, traditional psychotherapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, mindfulness and positive psychology.

We work with clients of all ages in our practice, <<OUR CLINIC>>, for a variety of issues, including significant trauma and stress relating to work or life experiences, a lack of confidence, phobias, mood swings, stress and anxiety.

We are experts in offering support to clients who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress and Disorder <<LINK TO PTSD PAGE>>, with a clinical diagnosis or otherwise, with particular emphasis on its impact on professionals in specific fields such as the armed forces, emergency services, blue-light responders, midwives and their families.

A lack of awareness and understanding about significant trauma, post-traumatic stress and post-traumatic stress disorder, and the best treatment options available is putting huge pressure on the National Health Service, military charities and social services.  The services we offer help clients, including those delivering front-line services, to stem overwhelm allowing them to function and continue to provide their much needed expertise.

In addition to offer a psychotherapeutic service, we hope that research <<LINK TO PTSD PAGE>> we are doing will help us influence and support Government, the NHS and Social Service providers in their decision-making process for the services they offer.

Mental well-being and providing understanding is another key driver for our business and we are continually studying the mental health of our client base people, using feedback, outcomes and evidence to inform our practice.  

We are passionate about the mental well-being of people from all walks of life, so, alongside our clinical practice and research, we run training programmes <<LINKED TO PROGRAMMES PAGE>> for businesses, schools and other organisations to promote mental health awareness and educate people in their mental well-being.

If you think you need help, but don’t know where to start, why not book a 15-minute virtual session to see if we can help you?  Get in touch when you are ready. 

We provide services through the South East, including Hampshire, Essex, Surrey, Sussex, London and Kent. . <<LINK TO CONTACT PAGE>>.
