What is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR therapy is a contemporary approach to mental health treatment, focusing on the unique process of eye movement to facilitate the processing of traumatic memories. Established with the goal of aiding healing from trauma and distressing life experiences, EMDR was first clinically investigated in 1989. Subsequent research has demonstrated its effectiveness, often achieving results more rapidly than many traditional methods.
Who Can Benefit from EMDR Therapy?
EMDR is applicable to a broad spectrum of individuals, including adolescents, teenagers, and adults of various ages who have experienced traumatic events.
Why Choose EMDR Therapy?
Unlike conventional therapy, EMDR does not necessitate a detailed discussion of distressing issues. Instead, it concentrates on altering the emotions, thoughts, or behaviours stemming from a traumatic experience, enabling the brain to recommence its natural healing process.
It’s essential to recognise the distinction between the mind and the brain. While often used interchangeably, they represent different concepts. The brain is a physical organ, whereas the mind encompasses the thoughts, memories, beliefs, and experiences that define you.
The structure of your brain, comprising networks of interconnected cells across various areas, particularly those related to memories and senses, influences the functioning of your mind. This intricate networking facilitates collaboration between these areas, explaining why sensory experiences — such as sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch — can evoke potent memories.
