EMDR stands for Eye Movement
Desensitisation and Reprocessing. It is a psychotherapy that has been proven to
be effective in treating trauma, and is recommended by the UK's
(NICE) for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Practitioners are also finding it
effective in the treatment of other anxiety related disorders. EMDR assists the brain to unlock and reprocess traumatic memories.
EMDR utilises the natural healing ability of your body. With repeated sets of eye movements, the memory tends to change in such a way that it loses its painful intensity and simply becomes a neutral memory of an event in the past. Other associated memories may also heal at the same time. This linking of related memories can lead to a dramatic and rapid improvement in many aspects of your life.
