I am a child and adolescent psychotherapist, and EMDR therapist. I work predominately with children who have been exposed to an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE). I am in the third year of my part-time Ph.D. at Northumbria University. I would like an opportunity to share with other therapists, some background to my research with a small insight into my clinical work with children and adolescents demonstrating how Transactional analysis informs my EMDR. I hope this will increase the awareness of the need for child research in order to make changes to government policy for early intervention for children.
