As a trained Counsellor and EMDR Accredited Adult Therapist, I offer a choice of talking therapy or EMDR to my clients. With my experience as a Registered Nurse for thirty three years, I provide a caring and holistic relationship with my clients. I also specialise in EMDR Child & Adolescent therapy, working with ages 2 years to 16.


Therapy can be a safe and confidential space for you to process thoughts and emotions without fear of judgement. It provides an opportunity to talk through your feelings and gain a deeper understanding of yourself.

When horrible or scary things happen to a child, the brain can have a tough time understanding what to do about these scary things. Sometimes these worries build up inside us…. imagine it is much like filling up a toy box until it starts to spill over because it is too full….or blowing up a balloon until it bursts because there is too much air in it. Our brains can get too full too!! This can be a scary thing and can sometimes make us feel sad or mad and feel very frightened or alone. This does not leave much room for nicer, happier thoughts and feelings in our brains and bodies. EMDR helps us to spring clean all the nasty stuff from our brains and bodies and make them feel less ‘full’- but also less scary.

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing, is a highly effective treatment for PTSD that has been recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence). This therapy is designed to help individuals recover from traumatic events and associated issues such as flashbacks, upsetting thoughts or images, depression, and anxiety. With EMD, individuals can find and move forward towards a brighter future.
