Barbara A Martino - Cross Counties Counselling & Trauma Consultation Service was initiated in 1992 by Barbara A. Martino, an American Psychotherapist who moved to England in 1987 from New York. Since then Ms. Martino became interested in the relationship between Psychotherapy and the neurobiology of disease and negative psychological states, particularly the underpinnings of Psychological Trauma.
In 1999, she trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), www.emdr-europe.org. To further her professional growth and expertise Ms. Martino is currently enrolled in a training program at the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute based in Boulder, Colorado.
As an EMDR Approved Consultant, she now supervises Clinicians both privately and within the NHS. Her practices are in Stratford-upon-Avon and in Wiltshire at The Ridgeway Hospital.
