What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), is a powerful psychological treatment method that was developed by a clinical psychologist, Dr Francine Shapiro.
A wealth of research has been conducted demonstrating the benefits of EMDR therapy in treating psychological trauma arising from experiences as diverse as war related experiences, childhood abuse or neglect, natural disaster, assault, road traffic accidents and workplace accidents.
Recent research also suggests the benefits of using EMDR therapy in treating a number of conditions, including anxiety disorders, depression and chronic pain. EMDR therapy has been found to be of benefit to children as well as adults.
