Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing

EMDR is a psychological therapy. It was first discovered and developed in the 1980s by the US psychologist Dr Francine Shapiro, as a novel and breakthrough treatment for the often devastating effects of psychological trauma.

Since then, EMDR has become an established and respected therapy in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is used by an ever growing number of clinicians worldwide. It is supported by research findings which consistently demonstrated its effectiveness and efficacy.

The treatment is endorsed by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellent (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Key benefits:

  • Fast and effective treatment for trauma
  • Suitable in early intervention treatment
  • Internationally recognised

Although it is most well-regarded as an effective treatment for PTSD, EMDR is also suitable for treating a range of psychological disorders.
