Psychological trauma is usually at the root of many mental health conditions, behavioural disorders and addictions. If trauma is untreated then it stays in and affects the nervous system and can lead to many common mental health conditions, behavioural disorders, addictions and reducing the capacity to cope with stress.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming (EMDR) is an emerging nervous system therapy for trauma and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). EMDR incorporates cognitive behavioural interventions with eye movements and other rhythmic left to right stimulation. These motions help by ‘unfreezing’ traumatic memories, letting you then resolve issues as they surface.
As an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner I have witnessed endless times just how transformative EMDR can be.
Other benefits of having EMDR can be:
[li]To process traumatic events in a safe and confidential therapy setting[/li]
[li]Reduce trauma symptoms including nightmares and flashbacks[/li]
[li]Relieve accompanying symptoms such as depression and anxiety[/li]
[li]Develops tailor-made coping strategies to deal with traumatic effects[/li]
[li]Help to improve resources and problem solving skills[/li]
[li]Support you as you move forward[/li]
