My name is Nicolas Spooner. I am a fully qualified therapist, registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. EMDR therapy is used within NHS trusts across the UK  to treat symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), general trauma related problems and a range of other common difficulties. ​ The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommend EMDR as a treatment for people with PTSD. It is an ‘evidence-based’ therapy, which means that research has shown that this kind of therapy is extremely effective. ​ EMDR is also shown to be extremely effective in aiding symptoms of anxiety, depression, and phobias.
