About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified and experienced EMDR therapist (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) accelerating the brain's ability to process triggers and subsequent traumas (eg stress, anxiety, recurring depression, road traffic accidents, traumatic birth, sexual abuse, burglary, being robbed at gun/knife point, phobias, feeling 'stuck' and unable to ' move on'). EMDR has ten inter/national guideline recommendations for the treatment of PTSD and is evidence based. I also specialise in minimising maladaptive defenses whilst regulating anxiety to access and experience full array of adaptive feelings. Five years experience as an NHS specialist counsellor. Let's see if we can dramatically change your circumstances in 6-10 weeks!
