EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing)
EMDR – or Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing – allows for a memory to be ‘reconfigured’ by the client, and framed in a more positive, less judgemental way. It sounds complicated, but in its essence this is a psychotherapeutic treatment that reflects how memories are both processed and stored. Because of its ability to help individuals overcome traumatic memories, EMDR has found particular prominence in the treatment of conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
While EMDR can seem almost like a ‘miracle cure’, it does not necessarily work for everyone. That’s why the treatment process is extremely structured, including an examination of your previous history as well as a detailed assessment. I qualified as an EMDR therapist in 2017, after completing three intensive training modules. If you’d like to know more about whether EMDR may be of relevance to your particular situation, please feel free to contact me.
At your first session, we will take a history and complete an assessment before formulating a treatment plan together.
