About me and my therapy practice

Are you ready to 'Feel' for a 'Change'? Ready to face and overcome 'that thing' that has been hindering the quality of your life and relationships with other and indeed yourelf? Maybe I can hel you. I am a fully qualified and experienced EMDR therapist (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) accelerating the brain's ability to process traumatic events and their subsequent triggers (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 understanding and reducing anxiety by minimising maladaptive defenses in order to access and experience full array of appropriate adaptive feelings. Five years experience as an NHS specialist counsellor.
