About me and my therapy practice

I am a Consultant EMDR Trauma Therapist and experienced NHS therapist and work with Government organisations including NHS, Police, Fire Service and Emergency Service Personnel.

I use the latest psychological therapies for working with clients who have experienced stressful events, for example PTSD, trauma, panic attacks, anxiety, low mood, etc   

Practice description

I work online (Zoom) due to Covid and have found that therapy online is as effective as face to face therapy and  through positive feed back from clients. 

I am a Consultant EMDR Trauma Practitioner and use CBT and other practical therapeutic  interventions  to engage the sensory flight, fight and freeze responses of the the brain and body. Therapy enables the person  identify the triggers to this defence system ie the fear that triggers the response of fight, fight and freeze that are activated when there is no immediate threat, panic, anxiety, anger etc   This can often result in ongoing low mood and anxious thoughts if not addressed by a psychological mind body intervention. 

My first session

  • My initial session involves take a life history of events and assessment of symptoms of distress.

  • Introducing psychological education about how the brain and body interact when distressed by events and introducing practical techniques to lower distress using self administered sensory motor techniques.

  • Education about Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) recommended by NHS Nice Guidelines and the World Health Authority as an effective treatment for trauma and PTSD. 

  • Sessions can take up to 90 minutes to give you a sense of the time it takes to reprocess information and enable transformational change in which problem emotional learnings are dissolved and symptoms do not reoccur. 

Please call me for any additional information and or to book an appointment  call 0777558719.  Regards Iris
