Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful healing method that has helped an estimated half million people, adults, young people and children, relieve many troublesome symptoms resulting from TRAUMA.

Evidence suggests that for many clients EMDR can significantly shorten the length of treatment and enhance results far beyond the scope of being involved in talking therapy alone. The reason for this is that emotional wounds are located in a more primitive part of the brain that are not accessible to language.

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.
