EMDR: Scientifically proven

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

(Once the current lockdown lifts I will then consider resuming in-person work, following safety procedures, at my discretion on an individual case by case basis.)

Having used Zoom successfully throughout 2020 I am fully 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).

Having been a clinician for almost 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’m part of the Integrative Attachment-Informed EMDR training team EMDR Focus led by Mark Brayne. I’ll soon be teaching Unleash Part 3: EMDR for Treating Addictions, following Mark & Jutta Brayne’s day on EMDR with Couples. Both course run consecutively from Fri-Sun April 30th-May 2nd, 4-9pm AEST for Australians and 7am-12noon for those in the UK.

Also for Australian EMDRers EMDR Focus is running Unleash Your EMDR: Part 1 online again this year, Fri-Sun July 30th-Aug 1st,  4-9pm AEST for Australians and 7am-12noon for those in the UK. Unleash Part 2 will be Fri-Sun Sept 3rd-5th, 2021, at the same times, 4-9pm AEST for Australians and 7am-12noon for those in the UK. Do visit EMDR Focus website for booking and more details.

I now contribute on a voluntary basis to the global EMDR community as 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 July-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.
