EMDR: Scientifically proven

Due to the Covid-19 Government restrictions all of my EMDR appointments are currently online.

(Amid continuing uncertainty and changes of regulations associated with the ongoing coronavirus crisis, I am working mainly online. I will consider resuming in-person work, at my discretion on an individual case by case basis.)

Having used Zoom successfully since the start of the pandemic in March 2020 I am highly experienced in this method of online therapy providing Bilateral Base to clients as a professional tool for EMDR. For more about EMDR online visit the EMDR Associations in the UK and Australia.

With so much psychotherapy to choose from, how do you know what really works? EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) is a rapidly effective form of psychotherapy (read more about how it works) and recently used by Prince Harry.

Having been a clinician for 20 years, I’ve witnessed at first hand the transformative power of EMDR to relieve distressing symptoms including anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, addictions, obsessions, relationship problems and even physical ailments such as chronic fatigue.

Many of my clients have had lots of talking therapy that helped them understand the problem, but were unable to change their reactions to life’s challenges and so were fundamentally unable to fix the problem. EMDR is a psychological ‘power tool’ to achieve real change in a way that other therapies often don’t.

EMDR has been scientifically proven to be profoundly positive for trauma victims in more than 20 randomised trials. So I’ve also worked successfully with many people who have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following a road accident; terrorist incident; caught in a war zone or have survived a sexual assault.

I’m an EMDR Consultant, meaning I supervise other EMDR therapists as my skills have been tested and recognised as an Accredited EMDR Consultant in both the UK and Australia. I’ve just set up my own training company EMDR Insight: New horizons in EMDR therapy harnessing the insights of parts & ego states by using an IFS-inspired approach to trauma healing.

My next course will run Fri-Sat-Sun: Feb 11-14, 2022. 1830-2300 Sydney time. 0730-1200 UK time. For more visit here. You’ll learn the basic skills of blending the Attachment Informed approach with the Internal Family System model (IFS). This course is run by EMDR Focus.

I’m also part of the Integrative Attachment-Informed EMDR training team EMDR Focus led by Mark Brayne. I lead training courses in EMDR and addiction and EMDR with Parts & ego states.

Also for Australian EMDRers EMDR Focus is running Unleash your EMDR Part 1

Until recently I was editor of the EMDR Association of Australia Newsletter. My services are listed by BUPA in the UK. Read how others have experienced this therapy with me at EMDR testimonials.

Running my own private practice as a therapist and supervisor, my background is in addiction recovery after spending several years working as a family therapist in the top treatment centre in Australia, also at Charter Harley Street, a leading UK addiction recovery centre. I currently see clients from Oxford (UK) as well as on annual trips to Sydney (next in August 2021). Many of my clients are scattered around the globe, as I have built up a long and substantial track record of administering EMDR and psychotherapy online via Zoom and Bilateral Base (an online EMDR platform), for clients who would rather take part from the comfort of home.
