About Oliver Wright, Consultant EMDR Therapist

I am an experienced trauma therapist and supervisor specialising in EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing). I also work online with 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.


I offer weekly EMDR sessions and intensive EMDR therapy.

Intensive EMDR sessions

Intensive EMDR therapy is a very effective and time efficient way of working through and resolving traumatic memories with EMDR. Often a single day of intensive EMDR can allow us to work through the same amount of traumatic material that would otherwise take 2-3 months in weekly sessions. 

Intensive EMDR can include 2 - 4 longer 90 minute EMDR sessions per day for 1-5 days depending on the amount of material that we need to work through.  

Flash Technique, developed by EMDR Trainer Phil Manfield, is a quick and safe way of processing disturbing memories without the need to feel these memories as intensely as you do with other approaches like EMDR. I often use Flash and EMDR in my work with clients suffering from complex PTSD.  

Areas of special experience

  • Trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

  • Addictions (including addiction to unhealthy or dysfunctional relationships)

  • Phobias (including fear of flying)

  • Sex and relationship issues 

Code of Ethics
I work with a strict code of ethics set by the BACP.
