EMDR Therapy – a groundbreaking therapeutic approach originally designed to address the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
However, it’s essential to recognise that EMDR isn’t limited to just PTSD; it extends its benefits to those dealing with depression and panic disorder as well
At Kove, we believe that everyone deserves to live a life free from the burdens of these conditions. Discover how eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy can provide you with a path to lasting change and emotional well-being. Take the first step towards a brighter future by booking your free consultation call today.
What is EMDR Therapy?
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 therapy to treat PTSD.
EMDR 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 therapy 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 therapy, 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.
