- Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
I am an Integrative Therapist and Trauma Specialist with 10 years of experience working in private and public sectors. I am an accredited Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing psychotherapist which is approved by the World Health Organisation and recommended by the National Institute for Health Care Excellence. It promotes significant progress and faster recovery with most common mental health problems such as anxiety, phobia, anger, eating disorder, depression etc. It is quickly effective for processing simple traumas, e.g. car accidents, witnessing something very upsetting, bullying on social media, etc, but it also helps get to the root of the problem of more stubborn behaviours such as anger, addictions or lack of motivation. I work with common issues such as anxiety, phobia, depression, work related stress, grief, divorce etc.
My background is in education and I am a part-time school counsellor. Previously I have been a teacher in comprehensive schools, private schools, schools for children with learning disabilities, and pupil referral units. I have expert knowledge of the problems facing children in schools. In my private practice I offer counselling to children and young people as well as parenting advice.
I am BACP Accredited and Registered. My work is confidential and non judgmental. My practice is open to people from all sociocultural background regardless of nationality, religion and sexuality.
