EMDR [Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing]
EMDR changes lives.
That’s a bold claim and I don’t make it lightly.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective method proven to help people recover from childhood events, trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
In the late 1980’s, Dr Francine Shapiro discovered a connection between eye movement and the persistent, highly upsetting memories that many people continue to experience long after the trauma is over. It is as if the trauma lives on and keeps the autonomic nervous system in a dysregulated state that can affect mental as well as physical well-being.
EMDR is also very effective for clearing the many blocks we have in our personal and professional lives, that are not necessarily the result of trauma but are simply an ongoing pattern of behaviour that it’s hard to shift or identify on one’s own.
One of my clients said this:
“I had an EMDR session with Marian to help me deal with some long-standing issues that were holding me back.
She helped me reframe some old memories and unhelpful behaviours that I was repeating and I now have a daily practice to keep the new framing in place. These much healthier and positive actions have meant I am now much calmer and more confident resulting in many areas of my life expanding.” K1
As well as being an EMDR practitioner, I’m also a hypnotherapist but EMDR is my preferred way of working; I use it for both mental and emotional well-being but also when treating musculo-skeletal problems which have their origin in a stressful situation that the body has not fully processed.
