My interest and continuous training in complex trauma and PTSD, allows me to be more supportive when working with distressing symptoms of trauma or intense fear or helplessness resulting from unresolved past experiences. When working with traumatised client I offer various approaches including EMDR Therapy.
What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapeutic approach effective in healing from symptoms of trauma and distress. It includes bilateral stimulation, such as eye movement, tactile or auditory, to process disturbing memories and negative thoughts by desensitizing them. As a result, old feelings are updated by connecting them with new thoughts, knowledge and emotions.
“EMDR therapy has been empirically supported by randomized controlled trials (RCT’s), and is internationally recognised as an effective treatment for trauma and a wide range of experientially based disorders.” – F. Shapiro
How EMDR therapy can help you?
As EMDR Therapist I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing to treat a variety of conditions, including various types of psychological trauma:
- single event trauma (road accident, physical or sexual assault, natural disaster and other)
- developmental trauma resulting from neglect or/and abuse in childhood
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
And for many symptoms and disorders such as:
- Anxiety disorders and depression
- OCD or specific phobias
- Addictions and eating disorders
- Limiting self-beliefs
EMDR therapy is recommended trauma treatment by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and NHS.
