Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. It is really effective in treating trauma and is therefore recommended by the UK’s National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  It is also effective in treating panic disorder, phobias, low mood, chronic pain, grief and low self-esteem, especially when these difficulties started after a specific event.

For more information, please see http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/docs/EMDR.pdf or http://www.emdrassociation.org.uk/home/index.htm

I really enjoy using EMDR because it produces great improvement and faster than many other types of therapy. I am trained in all three levels of EMDR. I have also completed additional training sessions of utilising EMDR to target traumatic births and traumatic losses.

If you feel EMDR could be helpful for you and/or you would like an assessment to further explore its appropriateness for you, then please do contact me.
