EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

Service Description

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a form of psychotherapy that was developed by Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s. EMDR Therapy is an evidence-based psychological treatment used widely in the NHS and private sector to treat a range of common mental health difficulties. It is perhaps most widely well-known for its utility in treating PTSD and traumatic reactions, with a sound and longstanding empirical justification for its use (see NICE guidelines for PTSD). The core component of EMDR therapy involves the use of bilateral stimulation, typically in the form of side-to-side eye movements. During a session, you would be carefully guided to recall distressing memories while simultaneously engaging in a specific type of bilateral stimulation. This softens difficult emotional reactions and helps to file away intrusive memories, giving you more control over how you experiences these. Fees are £100 per session (1 hour).
