, EMDR Practitioner in Braintree
I am an EMDR therapist and Registered Mental Health Nurse with over 16 years' experience. Fully insured, Enhanced CRB Disclosure and member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
Background & Qualifications
I began my career in 2002 as a nurse working in a hospital unit specialising in Eating Disorders and Postnatal Depression. I also worked with patients suffering from a wide range of mood and anxiety disorders, including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and PTSD.
After this I went on to work on a child and adolescent mental health unit, working closely with the young people and their families. These young people suffered with a range of mental health difficulties, due to distressing life experiences such as relationship or family breakdowns, peer problems, abuse, bereavement and bullying. I have a passion for working with young people, as I believe that early intervention is key to enable them the opportunity to live healthier and happier lives.
For the last few years I have worked in a specialised NHS inpatient service, providing treatment to clients with severe depression and anxiety.
I made the decision to become an EMDR therapist because I had witnessed so many people suffering due to traumatic or distressing life events, and I wanted to be able to do more to help.
Since my EMDR training I worked with a charity and then in private practice, mainly with clients from the police service. I am passionate about helping people to recover, grow and overcome their difficulties.
I also have qualifications in Eating Disorders and Solution Focused Brief Therapy which I may use within or in addition to the EMDR process if applicable.
I specialise in PTSD, phobias, anxiety and depression.
Approach to Therapy & How I Work
I believe that the most important part of therapy is to build a trusting and therapeutic relationship, based on compassion and understanding. I work in a fairly structured way; after the assessment process is a period of preparation in which people learn a variety of coping strategies before working on the trauma(s) together.
