EMDR – What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful healing method that has helped an estimated half million people, adults, young people and children, relieve many troublesome symptoms resulting from TRAUMA.
Evidence suggests that for many clients EMDR can significantly shorten the length of treatment and enhance results far beyond the scope of being involved in talking therapy alone. EMDR has been evaluated by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as an effective form of treatment for specific problem areas experienced by children and young people.
Personal Injury Services for Children/Young People
A personal injury or road traffic accident can leave children and young people with all sorts of disturbing and distressing feelings and memories. Sometimes even many weeks, months or years afterwards feelings of fear and panic continue.
Common descriptions given by those who have experienced a road traffic accident include nightmares, disrupted sleep, flashbacks of the incident, panic attacks, over vigilance, irritability and angry outburst as well as loss of concentration and confidence even in everyday things that once were taken for granted.
We provide private EMDR for children and young people who have experienced a personal injury and may benefit from appropriate assessment and treatment to assist their recovery and rehabilitation.
We work closely with Insurers, Solicitors and Case Managers to support children and young people achieve their recovery to their fullest potential.
