I'm a highly skilled and experienced clinical psychologist specialising in all problems and imbalances around feelings.

That could be mood-swings, numbness, depression or anxiety, but also OCD, eating disorders, self-harming, somatisation, pain,…

A combination of evidence-based therapy techniques - EMDR, CBT and Emotion Focused Therapy EFT - allows me to get to the centre of what causes your problems and help you to move towards emotional wellbeing.

EMDR therapy in West London in spacious rooms at Emotion Clinic Notting Hill

I have profound experience in treating the whole spectrum of mental health problems using a wide variety of evidence-based interventions.​ In addition to my CBT training, I trained in EFT Emotion Focused Therapy and EMDR. I work with individuals and couples.

I am registered with the HCPCBABCP, ISEFT and EMDRIA and I am listed in the German register of doctors. I also practice The Flash Technique.

For me, psychotherapy is very much about seeing more options. This includes getting a deeper understanding of what we usually do and why. Feelings play an important role in regulating our actions, so being more aware of our emotions, helps us to steer calmer through difficult situations, and to connect deeper with other people.

In my experience, it is our emotions that play the most central role in that process of change and healing, and changing challenging, often stubborn and blocking feelings is what we will be focussing on in therapy. This kind of therapy is very much 'in the moment': We will activate those emotions in the session and work on them while they happen, finding out more about their function, what they actually want to tell us and how to change them into more comfortable feelings.

My techniques are often creative and pro-active, including chair work, body-centred work and EMDR. This experiential approach allows you to get out of your head and into your feelings.

Eva Maiwald, psychologist, psychotherapist, EMDR therapist, CBT therapist in W11

I am a chartered clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, highly skilled and with more than 20 years of experience. I have worked in different specialised in- and outpatient clinics as well as within the private sector.


Since 2019 I focus entirely on my private practice, where I specialise on an emotion-focused approach to more complex presentations, often including the impact of complex trauma. Most of my patients benefit from a combination of 'hands-on' CBT strategies, experiential Emotion Focused Therapy and neuroscience-based EMDR. I enjoy working with clients who struggle with their feelings - mood swings, too much or too little emotion, often leading to relationship problems or somatic symptoms. 

Being able to learn about other people in depth is a great privilege of my job. I am curious to unravel the layers of a problem and find ways of helping my clients to help themselves.  Therapy is a process, a journey you start on together, not knowing what you might encounter. We will use methods that help the process to get more intense, to help the emotions to show up, to bring problematic feelings into the therapy room, so we can look at them and find out, what they want to tell us and eventually, what could be done to make those feelings change. Or we might start working on certain symptoms that make daily life stressful and continuously lower your self-esteem.

Since 2018 I share my rooms with my colleague Josie Geddes, who is an  experienced NHS CBT and EMDR therapist, a psychodynamic counsellor and an expert for all forms of addiction.
