What does EMDR involve?
During your initial appointment a detailed history will be taken and you will discuss what has led you to be seeking help. In EMDR you do not have to discuss traumatic events in detail as the approach focuses on the importance of the emotions and feelings around the event instead. After the initial appointment you will be supported with learning strategies to help you manage your emotions and feeling during and between sessions. Next you will be asked to recall the memories whilst moving your eyes from side to side or alternately tapping your hands. These side to side sensations help to 'unstick' the 'stuck' memory so that your brain can reprocess the information, as it would a with an ordinary memory, making it less intense. EMDR can help people replace distressing emotions and memories with more positive thoughts and emotions.Contact Us Today
