About me

I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner and a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, offering counselling and also EMDR  to adults, children and young people. I work in private practice and also in agency, company and school settings. I use an integrative approach and enable clients to determine the focus, pace and depth of their therapy.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is a relatively new trauma therapy. It is an extremely effective treatment for people - children as well as adults who have had traumatic experiences. It is also helpful for a variety of emotional and behavioural problems in adults and children including phobias, panic attacks and addictions.

Traumatic memories seem to become locked into the brain in their raw form. When these memories are recalled they can be very upsetting. Sometimes they can be recalled out of the blue causing flashbacks, nightmares and outbursts. EMDR is an approach which seems to help unblock the brains processing so that traumatic memories can become ordinary memories.
