I am a relational psychotherapist and counsellor, working in Newcastle upon Tyne for more than twenty years. I have worked with people from all walks of life who seek help for a wide range of issues. If you have experienced trauma in your life EMDR (eye movement desensitisation reprogramming) is an effective way to relieve your symptoms and help you move on.
