What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing.  It is an evidence based therapy and has proven effective as a form of trauma therapy since the mid-1990s. It operates through bilateral stimulation, engaging both hemispheres of the brain.   The therapy combines sensory stimulation such as eye movements or tapping, with emotional memories, things in life that are triggering or future fears.  Through this therapy those distressing things can decrease in intensity or be altogether relieved.  The therapy also helps to install positive beliefs.  Typically a course of sessions will be required especially for complex trauma or PTSD.

Typical benefits

  1. Diminished recurrence of traumatic memories.
  2. Increased capacity to handle and navigate traumatic memories without resorting to avoidance of potential triggers.
  3. Enhanced ability to participate in and derive satisfaction from enjoyable activities and relationships.
  4. Decreased levels of stress, anxiety, agitation, and hypervigilance—permitting you to carry out daily tasks without experiencing fearfulness or panic.
  5. Alleviated feelings of isolation, despair, and depression.
  6. Elevated self-assurance and self-worth.
