Trauma

I am currently undergoing EMDR training, (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a powerful relatively new therapy, which has been very successful in helping people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress and many other emotional problems.

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. EMDR is the most effective and rapid method for healing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) as shown by extensive scientific research studies. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing emotional experiences that are "trapped" in the nervous system.

This assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself. As troubling memories are processed by the brain via the eye-movement patterns of EMDR, resolution of the issues and a more peaceful state are achieved.

I can therefore currently offer EMDR Therapy at a reduced rate for clients who have experienced a single trauma or unpleasant experience which they are still being affected by. Please contact me for an initial discussion.
