About

My aim is to help you achieve a better outcome for you regardless of the problem you have. I am a member of the BACP and The EMDR Association. EMDR is an evidenced based therapy that can treat many things such as PTSD,Historic Abuse and trauma from medical procedures, EMDR is recognised by NICE and The World Health Organisation. I have considerable experience of one to one working for complex bereavement and loss. Issues I can help with include depression, anxiety and Trauma (such as events experienced that are still affecting you). I have supported veterans and emergency service staff, sufferings from a variety of issues.
I work face to face as well as remotely I believe it's important that a client trusts his therapist so he/she are comfortable to share anything that they want to work on. I worked for a number of years supporting bereaved clients. I have been a member of an emergency service and since 2010 I was employed by a large Police Force as a Force Welfare Officer.
EMDR is an effective therapy even if you don’t want to share details of difficult issues you want to address. I am happy to talk through my experience in a free telephone conversation. I often successfully treat clients who could not get good outcomes from the NHS.I am happy to work with you in a cost effective way by making best use of agreed sessions.
