Trauma and EMDR

We'll help you get a handle on life

Trauma is often associated with activities of war, distressing accidents , being raped or mugged, etc. but it can also refer to difficult events in childhood. Thousands of people each year grow up and live in abusive relationships or regularly witness  distressing events- severe rows, alcoholic  or violent parents, or have to live with care-givers who were emotionally unavailable to them. This is all abuse and has a detrimental effect on the well-being of the child and their ability to grow into emotionally resilient, strong and confident adults.


Our resident trauma specialist will work with you using traditional techniques or by a technique called EMDR  (Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing). This is a highly successful technique that cognitively reprogrammes the way the brain has stored the trauma and changes the physiological  responses to current triggers.

"My relationships were always in chaos. My life was in chaos. My thoughts were in chaos. Now I have order- and I like myself. I have just got married and am so happy. Thank you so much!

‘“The EMDR sessions I had with Helen changed my life.  I was struggling every day with intrusive thoughts, flashbacks and negative beliefs about myself. the sessions really helped change all of that. I now have my life and my mind back.  I no longer think that it was somehow my fault, and I don’t feel haunted by it anymore. I seriously recombine this therapy to anyone who has suffered from trauma in their life.  Helen was kind and understanding and I can’t praise her highly enough."

A childhood trauma has affected me all my life and interferes with my relationship.  I have tried therapy before, but nothing was quite like the EMDR sessions. I still can't believe that I feel “normal’ now. It's amazing. I feel that I have my mind and body back . And my husband is also overjoyed!  I am so truly grateful to you. Thank you."
