Ivan is fully qualified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), which is a technique that works with the brains natural ability to process everyday experiences. Trauma disrupts the brains usual processing, but EMDR can get your brain and nervous system functioning again using bilateral stimulation of the eyes or other areas of your body.


Ivan can work with clients using EMDR to target and re-process a specific traumatic event such as a car accident or assault. Phobias, anxiety, fear and unwanted patterns of behaviour can be worked through in a similar focused and structured block over several sessions (short term work). Please contact Ivan for more information in how EMDR can help in targeting specific issues you may be struggling with.
