Christine HabermehlEMDR psychotherapist
I am a Europe accredited EMDR Consultant and Practitioner, a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a Supervisor (individuals and groups, NHS and private) 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, online and for the NHS; providing counselling / psychotherapy, EMDR treatment, clinical supervision and online courses ranging from building personal resilience, preparing for EMDR therapy through to improving business mindset. 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 and witnesses of crime), fears and phobias (vaccine and needle phobia are common at the moment), working with people to help them tolerate MRI scans, 'mind medicine' supporting and targeting conventional medicine (e.g. radiotherapy), building personal resilience and improving sports performance.
My work is informed by current research that indicates the most effective approaches for specific problems (e.g. EMDR for trauma).
As an experienced and accredited EMDR Consultant and Practitioner I am passionate about this way of working. I actively encourage and support EMDR therapists and enjoy supervising the work of other practitioners and assisting them through the professional accreditation process. This has included voluntary work for Trauma Aid UK, supervising EMDR therapists working in the Middle East and supporting NHS staff during the pandemic. Closer to home myself and a colleague set up the EMDR Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire regional group that I chair and I was previously a member of the EMDR Association East Anglia Regional Steering Group.
