Recover From Trauma With EMDR
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based, eight-stage psychotherapy method using bilateral stimulation to help people recover from trauma as well as other distressing life events. EMDR was developed to help clients with PTSD but extensive studies have shown it extremely effective in also treating anxiety, depression, phobias, eating disorders, substance abuse, schizophrenia, sexual dysfunction, chronic illness-related stress, disturbing experience, and traumatic events.
Real change can happen in 8 steps.
Provided by a fully trained expert who is passionate about helping you overcome the issues holding you back in life.
EMDR can be performed in one of my therapy rooms in Cheltenham, Oxford, Swindon and Fairford, or over a Zoom call, so you can feel at ease, relaxed, and receive treatment within an environment you're comfortable in.

I've had my mental illness for a very long time. Does that matter?
It doesn’t. If you’ve had a mental or physical illness for most of your life, Hypnotherapy can help in making progressive steps towards changing your perception of it. For example, turning pain into the feeling of pressure.
Do you offer video calls for Hypnotherapy?
Yes, Hypnotherapy can be performed in person and through a camera or webcam, through Zoom. The only requirement is a willingness to help yourself.
I'm interested but can It truly help me?
Anybody can be hypnotised. It has the benefit of rewriting your brains behaviours, which speeds up the goals you have for managing your mental or physical illness. It essentially makes your brain work for you, instead of against you,
Can I have a chat with you first, free of charge?
Of course you can. Any questions that you have, I’ll be happy to answer. I also offer a free 20 minute Zoom introduction if you would like to talk about your issues, privately and personally.
I'm anxious but I need your help. Can you make it easier for me to establish contact?
I understand that anxiety can prevent people from taking a leap of faith in regards to getting help. All I can say is that I will 100% cooperate with your needs so I can help you further. Please take that leap of faith if you can, I can help you.

A recent ‘Clinical Review’ of hypnosis and relaxation therapies published in the BMJ looked at the existing research on hypnosis and concluded that hypnosis was proven to be effective for treating insomnia. (Vickers & Zollman, ‘Hypnosis and relaxation therapies,’ BMJ 1999;319: 1346-1349)
“The hypnotic state makes the person better able to respond to suggestions. Therefore, hypnotherapy can help some people change certain behaviors, such as stopping smoking or nail biting. It can also help people change perceptions and sensations, and is particularly useful in treating pain“. – WebMD
Following an extensive review of the existing literature on hypnotherapy, the British Medical Association concluded that hypnotherapy was not only effective but may be ‘the treatment of choice’ in dealing with anxiety (‘psychoneurosis’) and stress-related (‘psycho-somatic’) disorders:
‘When you believe yourself to be master of your thoughts, you become so’.
