EMDR (eye movement desensitisation & reprocessing). Experiencing single traumatic events or many traumatic events can cause problems to our nervous systems and we can feel depressed, anxious, we may have panic attacks, we may feel we on hyper-alert to danger, we have flashbacks, intrusive thoughts and nightmares. These can be debilitating and effect work, relationships, social and private lives.
EMDR is a psychological therapy. It is designed in a way to support you to build up many psychological skills that support you to:
regulate your emotions
manage symptoms of anxiety
understand how your mind and body work and how they can calm and relax
build emotional resilience
rescript negative beliefs
desensitise the emotional charge so that the memory no longer triggers a difficult reaction
reprocess the memory so that it feels as though it is in the past.
I look forward to hearing from you and I am happy to arrange a short phone or video call to discuss how we may work together.
Each appointment is 60 minutes.
I work nationally through encrypted video calls and I am based in Bedfordshire, UK. Please call me on the number below or use the contact box below for more information.
