Further information

What is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is a psychological treatment to help people deal with distressing events and trauma. EMDR works in a way that seems to accelerate the processes for resolving certain issues so that in many instances people are seen to have resolved certain issues in a much shorter time than through talking therapy/counselling alone.

EMDR is an approach that is effective for the treatment of traumatic memories.
EMDR aims to change how people feel about their traumatic memories. It helps people to develop more positive emotions, behaviour and thoughts and to feel that the memory is no long disturbing. EMDR appears to directly stimulate the brain's ability to digest past traumatic events and works effectively and quickly to heal the wounds that are left on the emotional brain. It has been widely validated by research and is recognised by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) as the treatment of choice for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

EMDR is also remarkably effective in the treatment of people who have suffered trauma such as ongoing childhood abuse, although this may require more extensive therapeutic time. EMDR has also been shown to be effective in treating more chronic problems such as anxiety, stress, phobias, addictions and lack of self confidence.
