the recommended trauma model
by NICE and used in the NHS
EMDR psychotherapy is documented for releasing the stress from traumas, clearing away outdated or invalid beliefs and connecting instead with your logical mind and with new thoughts that serve you better.
EMDR is thought to work by connecting together or kick-starting the growth of new neural pathways in the mind, old fears, resentments or guilt and being able to see a clearer and brighter future.
Symptoms of unresolved trauma can include hyper-vigilance, forgetfulness, difficulty in concentration, anger, lack of self-worth, disturbing memories, dreams or flashbacks as well as poor appetite and difficulty sleeping.
As a professional EMDR Accredited Consultant, I may recommend this system to you if your symptoms seem to relate to a situation from your past that you may be finding difficult to let go of psychologically or emotionally.
This may have conditions in one's early start in life or could have come about suddenly, such as from a sudden impact or incident such as unexpected violence, abuse, or an accident or road traffic collision. It could be from prolonged exposure to negativity, combat stress or a great loss such as bereavement of someone dear.
Many people have found that through EMDR they have been able to release their fear or agitation about driving following a road collision. It has also helped with the residual feelings following abuse or neglect in childhood and has quietened the symptoms of violence or grief felt from a sudden passing of a loved one or other difficult times
EMDR IS RECOMMENDED ALONG WITH CBT FOR THE NHS AS IT IS RECOMMENDED BY N.I.C.E. (The National Institute for Clinical Excellence)
This is because it has been clinically proven to be beneficial in most cases of PTSD and severe anxiety
