Welcome to Mark Brayne’s website.
An accredited Consultant with EMDR Europe (one of only two forms of psychotherapy recommended for trauma by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence), I’m a psychotherapist working near Paddington in London.
I specialise in trauma, both of the “Big T” one-off kind, such as accidents or assault, but especially also of the “small-t” variety, often going back to old childhood experiences of humiliation and distress that continue, deep down, to impact on the present.
I work especially with depression and anxiety, with couples, and am a qualified psychotherapy supervisor supporting those working towards EMDR Practitioner or Consultant status. As I am an EMDR Consultant, supervision hours with me count towards accreditation with EMDR Europe.
There’s more background about how I work, including a detailed CV, on my About Page.
As a former BBC and Reuters foreign correspondent and editor (30 years of reporting, broadcasting and editing, and postings mainly in and into the former Communist world from Moscow and East Berlin to Beijing), I also support journalists and news organisations in addressing the reporting and personal impact of traumatic events.
I’ve posted here a selection of my own and others’ past writings. For more information about EMDR in particular, follow the link on the left under Psychotherapy for my own explanation of what this is, or take a look at the website of the European EMDR Association.
And if you’d like to know more about how I work, about my fees and my availability, please do get in touch.
