Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is a powerful technique for trauma resolution and integration. EMDR sessions are more structured and do not involve traditional talk therapy except for the last ten minutes. EMDR involves thinking of a key memory and allowing the mind to wander whilst following a visual, auditory or tactile bilateral stimulation. EMDR needs to happen in the context of a safe and established therapeutic relationship as past emotions locked into the traumatic memories can surface during the treatment.

EMDR can be added on to long-term individual therapy with myself or with another practitioner. EMDR can also be a short-term intervention for single trauma or work on a specific symptoms or difficulty. EMDR sessions are usually longer (60-90 minutes).
