As well as teaching mindfulness in groups I am a certified EMDR practitioner and Integrative Therapist in training and student member of BACP, with extensive training in trauma informed approaches. The approach taken in Mindfulness-Based EMDR is to work one-to-one with clients, identifying what areas of their lives they would like to work on. Together we set goals and a clear home practice plan to enable a deeper level of well-being, self-compassion, resources and change.

Mindfulness-Based EMDR can be delivered over six sessions or longer depending on the needs of the individual. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly depending on schedules. These sessions can be delivered in person or via Skype, depending on location.
In 2018 I trained in EMDR and undertook counselling skills training which is incorporated into this work to help clients better process trauma, shame or guilt if appropriate and to remove blocks or help identify unhelpful behaviour patterns. I participate in supervision to ensure all work is client-centred and ethical.
Three Stages of Trauma Recovery
Using a variety of tools can help clients shift and change.
Stage 1: Stabilisation – Mindfulness, Movement, Building Resources, Narrative Work, Building Trust and Rapport – stage 1 can take weeks, months or even years.
Stage 2: Processing – using a relational person centred approach to deliver EMDR when client is stable and ready.
Stage 3: Integration – setting goals and future plans, narrative work to retell and integrate your story.
At any of the stages we can use mindfulness, body work and resourcing to continue to support growth and change.
