Testimonials from previous clients


“I was amazed and pleased with the outcome of EMDR therapy. I had PSTD symptoms after witnessing the 3rd suicide victim in one year, in front of my train. I expected I was going to feel better, but I feel completely cured of all my traumatic symptoms, anxiety and stress in only 3 therapy sessions. Duncan was a good counsellor, with plenty of experience in this field”

EMDR Client

“Duncan has learned a range of highly effective therapeutic techniques including EMDR, and has an advanced knowledge of the field of alcohol and substance misuse. He consistently makes a very real difference to the lives of people he works with whatever their presenting problem may be.

Duncan is very open to new directions in the field of psychotherapy and also keeps up with relevant developments in neuroscience. Added to this knowledge base is excellent grounding in wellbeing science such as breathing techniques, relaxation methods and Mindfulness.

Few therapists can offer the range and breadth of interventions,all accompanied by good rapport skills and humour that Duncan can.”
