Mark Grant (MA) is a psychologist with over 20 years experience in the treatment of stress, trauma, and pain. Mark’s main interest and experience is in the role of negative emotion (resulting from stress) as a cause and an effect of health problems. Based on recent discoveries from brain scans, Mark regards emotion as both the key to many psychological problems, but also a powerful resource. Associated with this, he is interested in treatments which harness people’s emotional resources.
As part of his search for such treatments, Mark was an early adopter of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR works by stimulating the emotional centres of the brain in a way which enables more adaptive information to enter the system. Mark pioneered the treatment of chronic pain with this method and research has been published in the Journal of Clinical and Consulting Psychology. He is currently conducting a randomized controlled study into this method.
