EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapy is a scientifically supported psychotherapy technique aimed at assisting individuals in overcoming past difficult or traumatic experiences.

The fundamental theory of EMDR proposes that new experiences are typically integrated into our existing memory networks. However, in cases of traumatic events, these memories can become "stuck." Consequently, individuals may find themselves repeatedly re-experiencing these "stuck" memories.

Using bilateral stimulation, often through eye movements, therapists assist clients in activating their brain's innate healing mechanism. Through this process, distressing memories are reprocessed, fostering more adaptive associations with cognitions. 

 

When distressing memories undergo reprocessing, it allows the healing process to resume, leading these memories to no longer trigger feelings of fear, shame, or helplessness.

As EMDR reduces the emotional, physical, and cognitive trauma related to negative memories, it can also be used to treat individuals dealing with trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety, stress, OCD and eating disorders.

Our skilled clinicians are proficient in EMDR techniques and dedicated to supporting individuals through their healing journey.
