Eye Movement Desensitising and Reprocessing (EMDR)
This type of Therapy was developed in the 1980's in America by Dr Francine Shapiro. It was created by accident and began primarily for use with persons suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder but it has been proven to be is very effective form of therapy for other mind altering problems , such as Anxiety depression and certain disorders. The great thing about EMDR as it is a fast healing technique by accelerating the way in which we would naturally heal by using Rapid Eye Movement. It is very effective and issues like anxiety can be diminished after 2-3 sessions. Bearing in mind that everybody responds differently to this form of therapy. Please do not confuse this with hypnosis, I also use the method DeTUR for addictions which is very effective too.
How do I perform it?
I would need a history of your issue and would then know where to focus our target . So you'll need 1 or 2 sessions of normal talk therapy first.
I would be using bilateral stimulation with my hands for your eyes to follow whilst focusing on the issue. The process is a lot faster to gain results than counselling and psychotherapy although I would stress there are certain problems that also need talk therapy. So it intertwines beautifully with the kind of therapy I practice.
I must stress that a good Counsellor / Client relationship is key to any therapy succeeding.
