EMDR: Scientifically proven

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

(I’m in the process of conducting a risk assessment of my working premises. I will create a procedure checklist to mitigate contamination risk. I will then consider resuming in person work at my discretion on an individual case by case basis.)

I have used Zoom and Skype successfully for several years, offering EMDR therapy sessions to clients presenting a broad range of issues. So I am fully experienced in this method of online therapy. 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. And for Australian EMDRers EMDR Focus is offering Unleash Your EMDR now as an online training beginning Friday July 31st through to Sunday August 2nd from 2.30pm – 7pm daily. We were due to run in-person training courses in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth but these had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. We’re currently running at least one Unleash Your EMDR in-vivo training in Sydney starting Friday July 30th to Saturday 31st, 2021 at the Harbour View Hotel where I will be the main presenter.

I now contribute on a voluntary basis to the global EMDR community as a Director of the EMDR Association Australia. I attend regular board meetings to decide the future policy and direction of EMDR training and standards plus I’m editor of the EMDRAA Newsletter. My services are listed by BUPA in the UK. Read how others have experienced this therapy with me at EMDR testimonials.

Now in private practice after spending several years working as a family therapist in the top treatment centre in Australia, I see clients in Oxford (UK) as well as on annual trips to Sydney (next in July-August 2021). I also work at Charter Harley Street, a leading addiction recovery centre. I have built up a long and substantial track record of administering EMDR and psychotherapy online via Zoom and Skype, for clients who would rather take part from the comfort of home.
