Journalist Support

To journalists – or others working on the front line – looking for trauma support and treatment, Braynework can now connect you with highly experienced and competent trauma therapists to work through with you whatever has blown your emotional fuses.

Click here to send us an email with a brief explanation of who, what and possibly when and where.

Braynework’s Mark and Jutta Brayne have lived and worked abroad for much of their earlier professional life (a rather younger Mark above on Tiananmen Square in 1989 before the tanks went in…).

We specialise in what we find to be the most effective form of trauma treatment, rather awkwardly called Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, or EMDR. (Recommended by NICE and the WHO, by the way, for PTSD.)

We know from our own experience what it’s like to work on the front line and to find that, at times, emotionally challenging, and with colleagues who’ve been through the mill, we work face to face and also, both increasingly and effectively, online (using end-to-end encrypted Zoom rather than Skype) .

Alongside us, we have a team of experienced fellow therapists who work the way we do, focusing not just on nasty stuff experienced in the field, but the more personal meaning you might have made of that – which can be linked with relationships at work and at home, and sometimes too with old childhood stories that are now getting in the way.

A pure talking cure this ain’t – we roll up our sleeves and do our best to make a difference.

So if you’d like to know more, please do get in touch with our colleague Libby Payne, who manages the front end of this new and still experimental referral network. She’ll do her best to put you though to a trusted colleague who might be able to help.

We aim to keep costs as low as we can, bearing in mind that many of you wanting and needing this kind of support will be freelancers without a big corporate network to fall back on.
