I am a highly experienced EMDR Consultant and Gestalt therapist, having used EMDR Therapy since 1999 and merging this approach with Gestalt Psychotherapy. I am one of only a few EMDR Consultants in the South West of England.
I have worked in a therapeutic role since 1993 in a wide range of settings in London (including NHS, BUPA, the non-statutory sector, Harley Street, London Met University) until 2010, and since then in private practice in Devon, serving the NHS, another national institution, and private individuals.
My long experience as a therapist and my keen interest in keeping up to speed with recent developments in psychology and neuroscience allows me to provide treatment that is grounded in experience and based on the best and most up to date clinical findings.
I currently offer Psychotherapy and EMDR Therapy in Plymouth, Devon and offer clinical supervision and professional training internationally. What I personally offer has evolved into a style of therapy which quickly gets to the heart of a matter; it offers a range of ways of working to try to accurately match a clients’ need and in the most effective and time efficient way.
Coupled with a friendly and warm manner, this therapy tends to be refreshingly brief and, as far as possible, an enjoyable/rewarding experience, particularly when long standing issues have been completely resolved.
