- 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 am also a Certified Cyber Therapist and provide counselling online through Zoom, FaceTime and Whattsapp.
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’ve worked with children and young people in Primary and Secondary schools and 6th Form Colleges. I’m a preferred provider with the Local Authority providing counselling to Looked After Children in foster care and semi-independent living. I also deliver training to school staff on mental health issues affecting children and young people.
I have a particular interest in trauma and am trained in EMDR with adults, young people and children. I am also trained in the Flash Technique. 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 a member of the EMDR Association UK and am working towards EMDR Accreditation. I am also a member of the British Psychological Society.
