Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a psychotherapy approach that can be used to treat trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder and a range of mental health conditions. It is an evidence-based therapy approach that can help individuals process distressing memories and associated negative emotions.

EMDR incorporates bilateral stimulation such as eye movements, hand taps or auditory tones to facilitate the processing of traumatic memories.

How does EMDR work?

The underlying mechanism of EMDR therapy involves the brains natural capacity for processing and integrating memories. Traumatic experiences can become “stuck” in the brain, leading to the development of symptoms like flashbacks, and hypervigilance. EMDR helps to unlock these stuck memories, allowing the individual to reprocess them in a more adaptive and less distressing way.

EMDR therapy offers a unique and effective approach to healing from trauma.
