Rosalind Townsend is an experienced therapist who works with all forms of emotional distress including stress, anxiety, depression and addiction. She has a special interest in working with trauma (PTSD) and a large part of her practice involves work with military veterans and those employed by the emergency services. Her practice, The Beacon Clinic, is based in Helston in Cornwall, within easy reach of Truro and Falmouth and she also runs a twice-monthly clinic in Plymouth.
She is involved in training on mental health issues for both the private and public sector, working extensively with schools, military charities, the police force and ambulance service and has published articles and guides covering emotional good health, PTSD and moving on from abusive relationships.
When working with clients, she always seeks to look at the ‘whole picture’ of the physical and emotional symptoms and practical difficulties that mental distress can cause, and to work with these by combining up-to-date scientific knowledge with common sense and real understanding, helping individuals to use this knowledge to make the changes necessary to improve their quality of life as swiftly as possible.
