- Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor offering counselling to individuals, couples, children and young people and practice from consulting rooms at the Beacon Centre in Chafford Hundred.
I've been a therapist for 13 years and have worked in a variety of settings and services for adults, children and young people. I've worked with adults for a mental health charity, Employee Assistance Programmes, Private Health Insurance Providers and schools.
I am trained in EMDR with adults, young people and children. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing EMDR is a powerful therapy designed to help people recover from traumatic events in their lives. EMDR is recognised by the World Health Organisation WHO and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence NICE. I am working towards EMDR Accreditation.
I have extensive experience of working with children and young people in consultation with their parents or carers. I've worked with children and young people in Primary and Secondary schools and 6th Form Colleges. I am a registered provider for the local authority to work with children and young people who have been adopted or are in foster care.
I hold BACP Accreditation which recognises the achievement of high standards of knowledge, experience and development in counselling and helps clients to make an informed decision when choosing a therapist.
