Doug Osborne EMDR Counselling SW15 SW18 Anxiety, Depression, Relationships
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 EMDR psychotherapy, counselling, relational psychotherapy and CBT for Anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and many other problems. I provide a friendly environment underpinned by the latest approaches in individual counselling and psychotherapy.
I use traditional psychotherapy and counselling alongside EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) . This method 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 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.

I have worked with a large number of clients that have symptoms related to difficult childhood circumstances, presenting as phobias, panic attacks, high anxiety, depression and addictions.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
