Nathan Beehag

Senior Clinical Psychologist & Director

You will never speak to anyone more than you speak to yourself in your head, be kind to yourself.

Therapy with Nathan

I seek to help people understand and integrate their story and themselves so they have compassion for their self and others.

My approach is to help people to firstly be in the best biological shape. We will work on breathing techniques, sleep, exercise, diet and understand any medical conditions. Once you start to improve biologically, we will explore your story further. We will understand your recent stress and traumas, and any childhood trauma. Our negative life experiences often shape how we see ourselves and see the world.

My main approach is to use EMDR and Internal Family Systems (IFS) to process your negative life experiences and/or past trauma. This approach will help integrate and process old thinking patterns and any somatic/physiological sensations that prevent you from being you. I am passionate about treating people who have experienced trauma, particularly those who have experienced trauma during adulthood and childhood, including trauma that occurs within relationships.
