About me and my therapy practice

I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practioner, qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT)

I am also trained in the use of the FLASH technique, the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), and Schema Therapy.

I work from a strong Humanistic bias.

I have experience of successfully working with a wide range of issues that includes :-

  • addictions (drug, alcohol, gambling, sex and internet pornography)
  • anger management /stress management
  • anxiety and panic
  • assertiveness
  • bereavement / loss
  • confidence / self-esteem

  • PAIN
  • relationship issues

TRAUMA (Big T = road traffic accidents, abuse, suicide survivor, etc and Little t = anything from the past that 'still lives within')

NO judgement here, just understanding and empathic support.
