What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy helps us process the distressing events from our past to stop them interfering with our present.
EMDR works with the idea that traumatic experiences in our past can get stuck and not fully processed. These memories then come back unexpectedly, causing us to feel overwhelmed, have flashback and nightmare.
EMDR follows an eight phase protocol. This step by step process starts with history taking to understand you and your past experiences. Then moves on to preparation which incorporates grounding techniques to manage your symptoms. Then moves on to processing of past memories. The process ends with closure which includes relaxation exercises to allow you to finish the session feeling calm.
EMDR Therapy can help you recover from PTSD, depression, anxiety, and phobias.
We offer EMDR therapy online using Skype, Zoom and FaceTime. This is an effective way to have therapy no matter where you are in the UK.
Helen Maharaj has attended full training in EMDR therapy from experts at EMDR Works.
