"
I often use EMDR therapy in my practice, together with CBT and Imagery Re-scripting. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With EMDR you are not required to speak in detail about your traumatic experiences, as this could only make you feel worse. Rather, I will guide you through a process to healing.
