Effective Treatment for Anxiety and Depression
Welcome! My name is Brendan Kennedy. I am an accredited BABCP and EMDR UK Psychotherapist. I offer Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioiur Therapy (CBT). I specialise in trauma focused therapy for PTSD but I am equally experienced and qualified to work with the full range of anxiety and depression disorders. Treatments are designed and tailored to the individual and provide lasting results, helping you to regain control of your mental health.
WHY EMDR and CBT?
Evidence Based EMDR and CBT Therapy
EMDR and CBT therapy is designed to help individuals overcome a range of common mental health problems such as depression,and anxiety disorders. All of my treatments are evidence-based and in accordance with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), are important therapeutic approaches used for the treatment of various mental health disorders. CBT is a form of experiential therapy that focuses on changing negative and disorted thought patterns and the behaviours that contribute to anxiety and depression.
EMDR is a Therapy used for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) where patients are guided to recall traumatic events whilst stimulating the brain via Bilateral Stimulation (BLS). This helps to access the frozen memory network, process the trauma and reduce the emotional distress that is associated with it. Both CBT and EMDR can be used for Trauma-Focused Therapy which is a specialised approach.
Your therapist will help formulate which approach would be most effective.

A bit about your therapist
An Experienced Clinician You Can Trust
As an accredited EMDR Consultant and CBT therapist, I graduated from the University of Wales with a Masters degree. Initially as an integrative counsellor and then as a CBT therapist. I have over 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist within NHS mental health services and Further Education. In the NHS where I currently work part time, I have worked as a senior clinician and supervisor with both EMDR and CBT. I am a consultant in EMDR which means I can supervise other therapists.
I am never more happier than when found oudoors or on the top of a Mountain, with my friends and my dog.
