Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

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. EMDR has also been applied to other problems including depression, anxiety, sexual abuse and phobias.

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. The reason for this is that emotional wounds are located in a more primitive part of the brain that are not accessible to language.

EMDR is a non-drug, non-hypnotic psychotherapy procedure.

Your EMDR Therapist will work with you in a safe and confidential way to track whatever comes to the surface until the negative aspects are neutralized. At the sessions conclusion, your Therapist would provide some resources that will leave you feeling in control and more empowered.

Here at the Manchester Centre for EMDR it is one of the therapies available and all our therapists are qualified and experienced practitioners who abide by appropriate professional Ethical Frameworks and codes of practice. We also provide CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Integrative Grief Therapy, Stress and Return to Employment Counselling.

The Manchester Centre for EMDR currently have consulting rooms in Brooklands (South Manchester M33).
