We assist our clients to improve their quality of life, overcoming such difficulties as stress, anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress (PTSD) plus dealing with chronic pain, We can also help clients move towards peak performance in an important area of their lives (e.g. sport or business).  We do this by assisting them to overcome the blocks in their thinking and shifting to more positive emotions. 

Many people have now heard of Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing EMDR the ‘breakthrough therapy’ that allows people suffering a range of distressing symptoms to overcome their difficulties, often after many years of torment.  Together we have thousands of hours experience with EMDR therapy and our principal, Dr Paterson, is an EMDR Europe Approved Trainer and Consultant.  He was also honoured by Dr Francine Shapiro, the founder of EMDR therapy, by being specially selected and trained by her as a Trainer to deliver her EMDR Institute course.

If you require support at a corporate level we can provide this with our specialist team of mental health professionals (LINK). Please browse our website and make contact if you feel you would like us to help you or someone else you care about.
