About

I am an integrative therapist specialising in using eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to treat a wide range of psychological issues. I am highly trained in psychotherapy, neuroscience and trauma and believe that our current issues can often be traced back to early adverse experiences in childhood. Compared to standard talking therapy EMDR generally takes a shorter amount of time to get to the root cause of the issue. Rather than just dealing with symptom management (like CBT), EMDR therapy works directly with the cause of your distress.
I specialise in working with the impact of traumatic stress on the mind and body. This includes post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) but I see many mental health issues as the result of this traumatic stress. For example often the roots of OCD can be traced back to earlier stressful events that need to be reprocessed using bilateral stimulation of the brain
I currently have appointments available on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please contact me for more info. : )
