Trauma Therapy - EMDR - Debriefing

Trauma Therapy and Post - Incident Debriefing

I have international expertise in major disaster debriefing and trauma therapy with over twenty years experience of providing debriefing and trauma therapy to individuals, families and groups who have been affected by a single traumatic event or had cumulative experiences.

I have worked extensively in numerous major disasters, including New York immediately post 9/11, Paddington rail crash, 7/7 London bombings, Tottenham riots and many more as well as with individuals dealing with the aftermath of such experiences as sexual abuse, road accidents or other life threatening experiences.

Trauma Debriefing - A process to identify and diffuse any excessive feelings, as a result of being in attendance or affected by an incident or disaster, enabling the individual or organisation to regain normal functioning as quickly as possible.

Research shows that debriefing individuals and teams after a traumatic event can help to reduce the likelihood of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Anyone of us maybe called upon to provide assistance to people involved in traumatic incidents of varying degrees of severity, become a witness to such events or encounter similar trauma in our own personal lives.

Trauma Therapy - a safe space for one to externalise thoughts, feelings, fears and emotions about the impact of that traumatic experience; to grieve for what has been lost; to heal from the psychological impact of the event and to enhance one's own internal resilience and resources.

EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing - is a unique and effective method used for clients who have symptoms of trauma and is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) as the most effective treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
