I am a qualified EMDR therapist ( Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). I trained with the renowned EMDR Masterclass.
EMDR therapy helps clients reprocess disturbing or traumatic memories by using a process that involves bilateral stimulation of the brain using sounds, taps, or eye movements.
A wealth of research has been conducted demonstrating the benefits of EMDR in treating anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, distress, phobias, assault, chronic pain, bereavement, depression, sleep problems, self esteem and confidence issues, childhood abuse, domestic abuse, eating disorders and accidents.
EMDR has been found to be very beneficial to young people, as well as to adults. This process is approved by NICE ( National Institute of Clinical Excellence ) as an effective treatment for the management of PTSD and to re-establish a healthy core belief about the self.

I work from my own comfortable premises in Stockport.
