Alan Tidmarsh PhD Counsellor, EMDR Therapist & Supervisor

Norwich, Norfolk, NR1 2QR
07722 610663 07722 610663 Registered / Accredited

I am a focusing-oriented supervisor working in person and online (Zoom).  I qualified in supervision with CSTD (London and Findhorn) and offer supervision to therapists and others working from a variety of orientations.

I am keen to develop and expand my practice and like to work with therapists who have an inquisitive approach to life and work.  I have researched therapy myself and several times stepped outside the confines of my original training to embrace opportunities to develop and offer clients more. 

My published work can be found at https://eastanglia.academia.edu/AlanTidmarsh and my PhD at: https://ueaeprints.uea.ac.uk/48047/1/PhD_2013_A_G_Tidmarsh.pdf  Whilst I have academic interests I do not expect supervisees to be that way inclined!  Indeed some of the best sessions happen when therapists relate only to their intuitive processes.

I have particularly enjoyed connecting with focusing-oriented therapists at international conferences and I continue with longstanding focusing partnerships.  When the opportunity arises I also enjoy teaching focusing as a life skill and therapeutic practice.  I particularly welcome supervisory relationships with focusing practitioners in the UK and elsewhere. 

My current preoccupations include:

  • Avoidance as a constant element in therapy
  • Structural approaches to complex trauma
  • The use of EMDR
  • Synergies between EMDR and focusing

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.

Wheelchair user access


Working from home I find I can be flexible to accommodate shift workers and those with domestic commitments.
