This is an innovative new treatment method that enables you to overcome trauma and specific problems, without having to engage in talking therapy, so you do not need to discuss your trauma. It’s based on a new understanding of how we process trauma and difficulty, and it draws upon extensive research.
EMDR is specifically used to treat trauma events, flashbacks, or episodes and experiences you cannot get out of your mind, such as a car accident or a specific painful memory. It works by clearing your neural pathways using very specific techniques. I trained as a specialised EMDR practitioner with EMDR works www.emdrworks.org
It is very often trauma that prevents us from being able to be here in the moment, and a successful EMDR treatment can remove the blocks to our own self-aware presence. If we can remove this trauma, then we do not need to be the product of our life story! EMDR will also help you develop reliable resources in your body and help you feel strong and safe.
EMDR can be used as a treatment alongside regular psychotherapy, for example you can take a short break from your psychotherapy to attend EMDR sessions. It can be used to treat psychological trauma such as childhood abuse or neglect, natural disaster, assault, RTA and workplace accidents.
