What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy that was originally developed to help people heal symptoms of emotional distress caused by traumatic disturbing life experiences.
EMDR was developed by a Psychologist called Francine Shapiro in the 1980's so whilst it's a fairly new treatment, it has been developed and used a lot since then, claiming a strong evidence base.

EMDR is based on the idea that our mind and body are designed to naturally heal from traumatic experiences but whilst this is true, there can sometimes be blocks which means our body and mind can get stuck. EMDR aims to remove blocks and gives a helping hand to help your mind and body heal naturally by processing upsetting memories. This means memories can be stored away properly and don't feel like they are happening now. As a result, nightmares and flashbacks will reduce, allowing you to live your life free of these.

Although EMDR was originally developed to help people experiencing PTSD, it has been effectively used to help people experiencing other difficulties including social anxiety, OCD and phobias.

EMDR treatment sessions can vary between 60-90 minutes and offer fast effective results.
