EMDR for Trauma
Offering a powerful and rapid therapy technique in Berkhamsted, Watford and London, NHS approved, to relieve distress from trauma, phobias and PTSD.
I offer an approachable professional psychotherapy and coaching service, integrating my clinical training and practice, with my leadership experience developing teams and overseeing operations. I have held roles as CEO of a therapy training organisation, The Counselling Foundation, and most recently leading the development of Therapy services at The School of Life in London. My aim is to help clients through therapy to achieve clarity and insight so that they can make better sense of their lives, feeling more empowered and with improved emotional resilience. I also practice EMDR, a treatment for trauma and PTSD informed by neuroscience, which is endorsed by NICE and used in the NHS.

The therapy I provide is relationship focussed, in terms of what I draw attention to in the client’s world with others, as well as resolving conflicts and tensions within themselves. My work appeals to a range of professionals and couples looking to address blocks to achieving personal goals, improve their relationship and enhance mental health.

Personal inspiration in my work
In my couples work I draw from the work of Harville Hendricks and their IMAGO model, as well as the work from the Gottman Institute which has a research base to the work. Clients often ask themselves ‘why’ they have arrived at this place in their lives. Feedback from psychotherapy clients demonstrates that during and after our work together, they have approached the choices they face in their life with a sense of courage and greater personal freedom, whether in their roles as a parent, a partner or a leader.
I offer services that can empower you with the necessary insight and courage in order to take the next steps on your journey. You can call me on 07888 754819 or email email@example.com to discuss how we might work together to help you positively move forward in your life.
Thank you for all your guidance and support and giving me the space to think, it helped me get through what was and is still sometimes a difficult time. Best wishes and thank you once again

I’ve been working with Robert for over a year and can honestly say he has significantly improved my mental health and quality of life. A former sceptic of therapy, I’ve come to realise that it’s one of the best investments I have ever made in my own personal development, relationships and well-being. Robert is incredibly effective at identifying and resolving the issues which underlie my personal challenges and counter productive behaviour. I have every reason to give Robert my highest recommendation.

It took me years to finally make the decision to meet a therapist. I had always associated therapy and counselling with illness, depression or abnormality. It turned out this could not be less true. Therapy with Robert enabled me to make sense of myself. I slowly began to take control of my own life and feel like a normal person; I wasn’t alone anymore.

I just wanted to share with you how much I appreciate the hard work you did with me to build resilience and get me more connected to my emotions and passions. Despite all the troubles of 2020 I had a very successful year, and a lot of that is down to the work you and I did together. I have finally found something I want to pursue for myself and it is now live!
