What is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)?
What does EDMR involve?
As with all therapy, we begin with initial assessment. An EMDR initial assessment involves taking a history of your experiences of trauma and loss.
From there the number of EMDR sessions you will need depends on the type of problem you have, your circumstances and your progress.
EMDR tends to work quickly and can have positive, long-term effects upon wellbeing.
EMDR sessions can be emotionally tiring, and the processing of memories is likely to continue during the day. It is suggested that you remain mindful of this when booking an appointment for EMDR.
When is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy used?
Now recognised by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organization as a treatment of choice for post-traumatic stress disorder, and we are pleased to bring this therapy to clients in Durham city and County Durham.
PTSD is not only linked to combat, it can be suffered by those who have experienced any type of trauma. For example abuse, an accident, witnessing a traumatic scene, experiencing an event which has left you with feelings of terror, historical nightmares. Until recently, these conditions were difficult and time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring quick and lasting relief for most types of emotional distress.
