Online EMDR Psychotherapy Specialist SW15 cPTSD/PTSD

About me

A very warm welcome to my page. I've been working in a variety of therapy settings now for ten years, including hospital and GPs. I offer specialist EMDR psychotherapy, counselling, relational psychotherapy and CBT for Anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and many other problems that arise from cPTSD (complex PTSD) and PTSD. I provide a friendly environment underpinned by the latest approaches in individual counselling and psychotherapy.

I am an Online EMDR Psychotherapy Specialist using the professional EMDR online platform called Bilateral Base https://www.bilateralbase.com/ alongside traditional relational and CBT therapy.

EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) allows access to old memories that unconsciously drive thoughts and feeling in the present. EMDR has become more and more recognised as a highly effective treatment for anxiety, phobias, depression and relational difficulties that arise from traumatic circumstances in a persons history. I have trained in specialist attachment (Ai-EMDR) EMDR for resolution of adult problems (PTSD) with childhood/family trauma - eg: difficult, neglectful, perfectionist or absent parenting. Here's a great video on how attachment EMDR helps

I also specialise in working with adult survivors of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. I am an integrative psychotherapist (MA). I am a visiting lecturer on the counselling psychology programme at Roehampton University.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
