Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing

This treatment is relatively new in the field of psychology, but we have found in clinical treatment it shows really quick results and often clients report it to be effective within a few sessions.  At first it may feel a little strange, as it is set up is a little different, and the method involved shift your eyes following either a light or fingers so it important to have a discussion with us if this is your treatment of choice so we can really explain to you suitability and the process.

If you are curious about EMDR’s origins, it was developed by psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro who in 1987 made the chance observation that eye movements can reduce the intensity of disturbing thoughts, under certain conditions.  By 1989 she reported success using EMDR to treat victims of trauma.  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been proven effective for the treatment of trauma. 

Since then, EMDR has developed and evolved through the contributions of therapists and researchers all over the world. Today, EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. It has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.
