Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a leading treatment for most trauma, and post-traumatic stress (PTSD). It uses a technique to enable the brain to activate a past memory and re-process it in a healthier way. It focuses on the images, self-beliefs, emotions and physical sensations that you hold when you have not processed a trauma in a healthy way originally.

Examples of issues where EMDR can be helpful:


Examples include:


  • Emetophobia

  • Arachnophobia

  • Fear of flying

Or any other fear that impacts your daily life.

Complex Grief

There is a natural process of grieving. EMDR helps with traumatic memories associated with loss.


EMDR can help to manage:

  • Generalised anxiety disorder

  • Health anxiety

  • Panic attacks

Birth Trauma

Any traumatic experience associated with birth, pregnancy or miscarriage. EMDR can be used with medical approval.


Abuse can take many forms. For example, physical abuse, gas-lighting, sexual abuse. EMDR can help overcome the trauma of these experiences.

When we sleep deeply and process information from the day, our eyes move from side-to-side during our sleep cycle. This is called REM sleep. EMDR recreates this left to right eye movement when awake. This allows thoughts, feeling and memories to be re-processed as they should have done when the trauma happened. This can be used for past memories, current triggers and/or future fears.

I am European Accredited EMDR Practitioner, using EMDR within my psychotherapy practice.
