A little bit about Des Mc Enaney, Certified EMDR Therapist & Consultant, Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

I first started working as an EMDR therapist in 2008, and later I became an EMDR Consultant. From the start, I have helped adults, adolescents, and children overcome all kinds of traumas, phobias, and fears. Currently, I am a member of the EMDR Canada Board of Directors. Previously, I was a Board member of EMDR Ireland, and I was on the Child & Adolescent committee of EMDR UK, where I organized continuing education for EMDR therapists working with children and adolescents.

For over 20 years, I worked as a social worker in Ireland, in child protection, and fostering, and as a civilian social worker with the military. For the last 15 years, I operated a psychotherapy practice, with EMDR Therapy and EMDR Consultant work being the main focus. My aim has always been to work myself out of a job, by helping people overcome the difficulties holding them back from living a full and happy life. I love the work that I do, and it is a privilege to be able to help someone like you heal from traumatic events that life has brought to your door. I am optimistic and hopeful in my approach. I work with your best interests in mind.
