Christine Habermehl EMDR psychotherapist , WC1X
I am a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, a Europe accredited EMDR Practitioner and a Supervisor (individuals and groups) with wide ranging knowledge and over twenty years experience in all aspects of psychotherapeutic work.
I offer a warm, professional and ethical approach working both short and long term in private practice and for the NHS; providing counselling / psychotherapy, EMDR treatment and supervision. I have trained in many different approaches and in consultation with my clients I tailor the way that I work to best suit the individual and their unique circumstances.
The types of issues I regularly work with include anxiety, depression, bereavement and grief and all types of trauma ranging from road traffic collisions, physical and sexual assaults / abuse, through to war related events, witnesses of crime, fears and phobias.
My work is informed by current research that indicates the most effective approaches for specific problems (e.g. EMDR for trauma, CfD for depression and a specific programme for IBS).
As an experienced and accredited EMDR Practitioner I am passionate about this way of working. I actively encourage and support EMDR therapists and enjoy supervising the work of other practitioners. This includes voluntary work for Trauma Aid UK, supervising EMDR therapists working in the Middle East. Closer to home, myself and a colleague set up and co-ordinate the EMDR Bedfordshire group (as a sub group of the EMDR Association East Anglia region) and I've been a member of the EMDR Association East Anglia Regional Steering Group.
My contact number is (01234) 83 10 83. Due to the nature of my work I can't always pick up my calls. There is a secure voice mail, so please leave me a message and I will be pleased to call you back as soon as I can.
