What is EMDR?

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing, or EMDR, is form of psychotherapy to resolve the development of trauma related disorders caused by exposure to distressing events.

It is thought that when a distressing event occurs, it may overwhelm the usual coping mechanisms. The memory of the event gets hidden away in an isolated memory network. The aim of EMDR is to process the distressing memories and reduce their impact which leads to a better environment for the client.

The process of EMDR is a multi-phase approach with distinct actions and techniques used in each phase. Depending on the initial trauma, a series of revisions may be needed in each phase to ensure that the trauma is dealt with effectively.

The key phase of EMDR is the following of a moving object with the eyes whilst thinking about the traumatic event. The resulting connection between the eye movements and the feelings of the client determines how much the trauma is affecting them and how desensitised they have become.
