Follow Me:

I am a UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist and EMDR therapist in private practice, and also co-founder with my brother George of Bilateral Base, EMDR’s increasingly go-to web app for delivering this amazing therapy online.

I met Mark Brayne in 2019 when I interviewed him for my doctoral research into ‘How EMDR can be integrated into a relational therapeutic approach when working with clients presenting with complex trauma’.

I subsequently completed Mark’s training and was blown away by how beautifully this approach fitted with my relational, integrative way of working, something I had found challenging with the basic EMDR training.

As well as doing research and clinical work, I am also one of the founders of ‘Bilateral Base’ which provides a video conferencing platform with integrated BLS capability for online EMDR as well as high quality wireless equipment for in-person therapy.

With my husband Andy doing the tech, we are the central back-office team keeping EMDR Focus on the road as an organisation providing both training and supervision in attachment-informed EMDR.
