Kove offers EMDR therapy for adults. 

EMDR originated as a treatment for the symptoms of PTSD, but it can also be helpful for depression and panic disorder.

What is EMDR?

EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) is a therapy that can relieve distress linked to traumatic memories.

Scientific studies show that EMDR is an effective way to treat psychological distress. Both NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) and WHO (World Health Organisation) recommend EMDR to treat PTSD. 

EMDR therapy can help relieve the fear, shame, loss of control, and other emotions that result from trauma. Your traumatic memories become integrated with a positive sense of self, so they no longer cause you distress. During EMDR treatment, you’ll revisit traumatic memories while your conscious mind is occupied with bilateral stimulation – a visual, auditory or tactile stimulus that crosses the body in a rhythmic left to right pattern. 

Eye movements are often the type of bilateral stimulation used in EMDR, but your therapist may also use hand tapping or audio stimulation. Recalling traumatic events while focusing on your eye movements changes the way your brain processes these experiences, helping to integrate them into more adaptive memories. These adaptive memories allow us to learn and evolve.
