Our Patron

Terry Waite CBE

“I am delighted to support the EMDR Association UK and raise awareness of this wonderful, often-life saving, and most effective of therapeutic treatments. I was very fortunate not to have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after spending five years in captivity, but there are many people with this debilitating and life threatening condition, who could be helped if they knew about EMDR.  The therapy has very prestigious endorsements including World Health Organisation (WHO) approval for the treatment of PTSD in both adults and children. I hope these endorsements and the implementation of the WHO’s Mental Health Action Plan will further its use throughout the world, benefitting many more people who have had terrible experiences they are struggling to come to terms with.”

Terry Waite CBE Biography
