Research suggests that it may be difficult for our brain to
process a traumatic or very negative event. This inhibits our
ability to recover and over time, symptoms either do not go away
or even get worse. The incident becomes stuck in a dysfunctional
way. When you remember, you may actually relive it or experience
strong emotions and physical sensations or conversely, you may
feel numb and shut-down from your emotions.
EMDR has evolved through the contributions of therapists and
researchers all over the world. Therapists follow a specifically
designed protocol and the process of EMDR involves a combination
of dual stimulation (eye movements, auditory tones, tapping),
and gently focusing on images, emotions, thoughts and body
sensations associated with your personal trauma.
Your EMDR Therapist will work with you in a safe and
confidential way to track whatever comes to the surface until
the negative aspects are neutralized. At the session’s
conclusion, your Therapist would provide some resources that
will leave you feeling in control and more empowered.
Here at the Birmingham Centre for CBT, EMDR is one of the
Therapies available and all our Therapists are qualified and
experienced practitioners who abide by appropriate professional
Ethical Frameworks and codes of practice.
