About Oliver Wright, Consultant EMDR Therapist
I am an experienced trauma therapist specialising in EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing). I also work online with Skype or Zoom.
I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an EMDR Europe accredited Consultant. I trained in counselling and psychotherapy at the University of East London and completed my Diploma in 2006.
