Based in St Albans and Hatfield, Hertfordshire. I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner and a Registered Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have been working as a therapist for many years offering confidential, professional counselling and EMDR to adults, young people and children.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing , E.M.D.R.
“an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder”
practice guidelines (CG26) of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
Research has been conducted demonstrating the benefits of EMDR in treating psychological trauma arising from experiences as diverse as:
- childhood sexual and/or physical abuse or neglect
- natural disaster
- surgical trauma
- road traffic accidents
- workplace accidents
I have extensive experience working with clients who have a variety of concerns. However, my main area of expertise is in the field of helping people who are finding it difficult to cope with the effects of traumatic incidents which may have occurred in their lives.
I work in private practice and also in agency, company and school settings. I use an integrative approach and enable clients to determine the focus, pace and depth of their therapy.
While many of my clients are referred to me by insurance companies and other agencies I welcome referrals from individuals who feel they may benefit from EMDR or counselling.
