About me

Hello my name is Kevin. I specialise in the treatment of trauma including accidents, medical trauma, work place and childhood bullying, domestic abuse, rape, sexual abuse and traumatic grief. I can also help you with depression, anxiety, worry,  OCD, phobias, body and self esteem issues, chronic pain, porn and Internet addiction. I am an EMDR Consultant and Accredited CBT Psychotherapist with over thirty years’ experience in working in Mental Health within the NHS. Twenty of these have been in senior positions supervising and supporting the clinical practice of a wide range of psychological therapists.

EMDR is a therapy for PTSD aimed at symptom resolution and acceptance of what has happened. CBT offers effective treatment for a wide range of emotional health challenges. Both approaches have been recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence. CBT is delivered in a one hour session, whilst EMDR is normally a longer 1 1/2 hour session.

I am always happy to chat to potential clients  over the phone, as they consider what might be the right therapy and therapist for them. I am happy to discuss supervision and how I can support accreditation with EMDR therapists. Please feel free to contact me to see if I can help.

Wheelchair user access

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I am happy to discuss any additional needs with you. I can offer home visits if needed.
