Treatments used.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR has been proven effective not only with trauma, but also anxiety, depression and other conditions. EMDR is more effective than standard imaginal exposure, in not just treating anxiety but other emotions such as shame and guilt and where trust was violated. EMDR appears to allow the brain to process a traumatic memory that may have been locked down even for years.
People who have been traumatised often experience a.. It is understood that the emotions and bodily reactions at the time of the incident are somehow encoded in the brain which cause them to be stored in a different way to normal memories.
These memories can cause flashbacks or a sense of re-living the experience again, with all the pain and vividness of the original experience. The EMDR process involves eye movements and directions from the therapist which helps to process the unconscious material.
Clients who would like to find out more about EMDR are encouraged to look at the website for the Australian Association of EMDR
