Trauma and EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialist form of therapy that helps process blocked-trauma, either from recent or past events. EMDR as a psychotherapeutic intervention has evolved in recent years and is now can include Flash-EMDR (a brief intervention), or, secondly, as Attachment Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR), where we look at whole relationships which may have been traumatic, and how these affect you now. 

The decision on which approach best suits you is established during at least one assessment session. In general EMDR involves a discussion, looking for early trauma and how this may relate to a recent events that are causing you problems. Then, using a mixture of talking and bi-lateral stimulation (eye moments, tapping, or alternating sounds), we aim to process any unresolved trauma and restore your natural sense of resilience. Sessions are 50 or 75 minutes, delivered weekly.
