Hi, I'm Tessa 🙂

I am a registered Psychologist and EMDR Therapy Accredited Practitioner and I have over fifteen years experience working in a therapeutic setting with clients.

I truly hope that I can help you to feel welcome and free to be(come) who you are.

Your culture, religion, gender, sexual preference, age and disability, they are all welcome and I look forward to learning more about what makes you uniquely you.

We repeat what we don’t repair

EMDR Therapy

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. The approach can work to resolve all types of trauma, phobias, anxiety, depression, grief, addiction and many, many more symptoms, without even having to talk much.


Trauma can be physical and/or psychological and depending on the severity of the injury, someone may or may not require extra support to heal. Small or big, painful events can have significant, long-lasting negative impacts on how our brains develop and function and thus on how we act and feel about ourselves and others.


The term ‘dissociation’ is used to describe many symptoms and they can be differently understood by different professions.
In psychology we understand that dissociation is a symptom, as well as a coping strategy that has been developed as a result of having experienced (severe) trauma.
