Hypnotherapy Psychotherapy Counselling Reiki


EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy originally developed to assist in resolving symptoms resulting from traumatic events. The approach addresses the past, present and future aspects of the traumatic or dysfunctional memory and transforms the emotional, sensory and cognitive components so that it is no longer distressing.

It is therefore extremely beneficial for those who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events, and as a consequence may be suffering from recurring flash-backs, nightmares, thoughts and beliefs, such as those who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Over the years, EMDR has been increasingly used as a therapeutic intervention for other issues such as phobias, grief, anxieties, pain, panic and many other experientially based disorders.

This therapy involves bi-lateral stimulation which is done by undertaking a number of sets of eye movements whilst the client simultaneously focuses for short periods of time on the trauma or subject of anxiety. This can also be done by tapping or using bi-lateral auditory tones.

The whole session is carried out in a completely safe environment and the client can choose at any time to stop the process if required.
