Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing

 

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) works with the understanding that a traumatic event causes an extreme state in certain areas of the brain. This prevents the natural process of resolution from occurring. The memory of a traumatic event appears to be frozen in its original anxiety-form, complete with a combination of the original and fantasy images and the effect of these.

EMDR can free up the trauma from the nervous system by allowing the brain to process the experience in a natural way.
